You can create, view, edit, or delete records belonging to Salesforce leads, contacts, accounts or any other object from a Sitecore portal page. The Sitecore page is only accessible after visitors login to the website using a login control. Installing the Security Connector for Contacts option allows privileged customers, employees, partners, or any other entity, represented in Salesforce as Contacts, to login to your Sitecore website using credentials stored in their Contact record.
IMPORTANT: The Security Connector requires a login control on your website.
The Security Connector for Contacts is only required if you want visitors to log into the Sitecore website using credentials stored in a Salesforce contact record. The Security Connector overrides the ASP.NET membership provider so user data is stored in Salesforce but appears in Sitecore under the “salesforce” domain name. After installing this option it is possible to control the visitors Sitecore role, user profile, landing page and more, directly from Salesforce.
IMPORTANT: The connector has a number of install options and some may not be necessary for your requirements.
These wiki pages cover the installation steps needed to install and configure the optional FuseIT S4S Security Connector.
The FuseIT S4S Security Provider is distributed as a Sitecore Package and also requires a package to be installed into Salesforce.
