SSO/SAML for logon

Post by brianv » Wed 13 Mar 2013 12:38

Hi,

We are establishing an SSO with Salesforce, using SAML 2.0 and currently considering purchasing dotConnect for Salesforce for general development connections. Does the current version (2.2) allow for SAML connections instead of the standard connection string?

Code: Select all

"metadata=res://*;provider=Devart.Data.Salesforce;provider connection string="User Id=<userid>;Password=<pwd>;Security Token=<token>;Persist Security Info=True;Host=<host>""
If not, where is this in the release cycle?

Please refer to https://login.salesforce.com/help/doc/e ... cess_token. As we understand, you want to obtain SAML Assertion in your code and pass it (instead of User ID, Password, Security Token) to the SalesforceConnection object to establish connection to salesforce.com. Is this correct?

This is correct, we are looking to use something like the connection string used for SQL server (";data source=<myserver>\SQLEXPRESS;initial catalog=<mycatalog>;integrated security=True;multipleactiveresultsets=True;App=EntityFramework"). This would simplify our service account management, as we would not need to encrypt configuration, etc.

We are working on the SSO/SAML support in dotConnect for Salesforce. We will post here when it is implemented.
