Install Security Connector for Account Lookup (Optional)


This section covers the installation steps needed to install and configure the FuseIT S4S Security Connector.

Adding this functionality allows your customers, represented in Salesforce as a custom object with a lookup relationship to a parent Account, to login to your Sitecore website using credentials stored in their Salesforce record. 

The Security Connector overrides the ASP.NET membership provider so user data is stored in Salesforce but appears in Sitecore under the configured domain name.

IMPORTANT: The connector has a number of install options and some may not be necessary for your requirements.

Modifications of Configuration Files

It is assumed that the modifications to the configuration files have already been made to add the required connection string. The configured user will need API access to Account records and the corresponding custom object with the lookup relationship. If the password field is encrypted in Salesforce the API user will need the "View Encrypted Data" system permission. This can be done either directly on the Profile or via a Permission Set.
