Util package to drive Salesforce Oauth Web flow for testing.

Project description

A bit of Requests driven utility code to drive the Oauth2 Web flow. Use this module to login to a Salesforce account using just the username and password. Good for tests and scripts which need Salesforce access_token access.


pip install salesforce-oauth-request-yplan


You need a Connected App defined in Salesforce so that you have all these pieces of info:

  1. client ID
  2. client secret
  3. redirect uri

Now you can get an access_token and instance_url like this:

import salesforce_oauth_request

result = salesforce_oauth_request.login(username=username,

print "Access token:  {}".format(result['access_token'])
print "Refresh token: {}".format(result['refresh_token'])
print "Instance URL:  {}".format(result['instance_url'])

# Now use access_token, instance_url for REST, SOAP, or BULK API access.


cache_session=True/False - default False

Pass the option cache_session=true to save the access token to ~.sf_oauth to save time on repeated runs.

sandbox=True/False - default False

Pass sandbox=True to use a sandbox login. ## Testing
