Install Security Connector in Salesforce for Contacts (Pre-Sitecore 9)

This section covers installing the Salesforce components of the S4S Security Connector. You may not need to implement the processes in this section.

IMPORTANT: This is an optional install that lets customers log into the public Sitecore website using credentials stored in their Salesforce Contact or Lead record. A login control will be required on your public facing site.


The S4S Security Connector is an option that lets your customers login to your website or web portal with a username and password stored in Salesforce. The authentication credentials are stored in a detail section in the customers Salesforce Contact or Lead record. This functionality works by overriding the ASP.NET providers used by Sitecore so that the information is only stored in Salesforce.

The  Security Connector supports a "single source of truth" architecture where customer data is stored in Salesforce (and not in Sitecore).

IMPORTANT: If you choose this optional install you need to add the single-role or multi-role package to Salesforce and make config file changes in Sitecore.
