  2. Activate the Enable OAuth Settings.
  3. Enter the call back URL: https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token

Getting Access Token from Salesforce Through REST API

You need to have an access-token to make an API request. In this process, you use Salesforce username, password, consumer key, and consumer secret to achieve it.

  1. Open the Postman REST client.
  2. Change the value to POST.
  3. Click the Authorization tab.
  4. For the Type, select Bearer Token.
  5. In the Token field, enter the access_token returned from the Getting access token from Salesforce through REST API step.
  6. Change the Authorization Type to OAuth2.0.
  7. Enter the following URL: https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token
  8. Enter the following key/value parameters under the Params tab:
Key Value
grant_type password
client_id {your Salesforce Consumer Key – generated from the Connected App Creation step}
client_secret {your Salesforce Consume Secret – generated from the Connected App Creation step }
username {your Salesforce user Login}
password {your Salesforce Password}

The above params generate the correct URL for the request. The following is an example of the URL for the access token request:

https://login.salesforce.com/services/oauth2/token?grant_type=password&client_id=3MVG9yZ.WNe7cyQBMXq.PrTbt537gjQ1Ms5SdBsrLLmJ7lTo9T.wANyJvboB1BNeKRLKcUdf1cnp_3ZUtAGCO&client_secret=876CF1EA0801B5683C889921FACDF7BB963FC2B21FB9F26893EE7C5D62A5CE53&username=user@intelepeer.com&password=eGqF5k6Xfg69Fb
