Completing the Salesforce Setup Wizard

When you log on to the Command Center for the first time, a setup wizard guides you through the core setup required by the applications available in the Command Center. After you complete the core setup, complete the setup wizard specific to the Salesforce application.

Before You Begin

  • Verify that you have the Salesforce API token. Salesforce sends this token the first time that you sign in to your account.

    For additional information about Salesforce tokens, go to the Salesforce help site, Reset Your Security Token.

  • Create a Connected App in Salesforce.
  • If you want to back up Salesforce objects in a database or use certain features, review the list of features and the requirements for the Microsoft SQL server database or the PostgreSQL database, and then verify that you have the following database information:
    • The type of database
    • The client that hosts the database. The access node is able to connect to the database instance using JDBC URL.
    • The database name
    • The credentials for a user who meets the following criteria:
      • Microsoft SQL server: Is a SQL authentication user, has owner permissions, and if the database does not exist, has the dbcreator role
      • PostgreSQL: Has super user permissions
