Issues logging into developer edition

I'm in the "Salesforce Connect" module and trying to complete the set up to integrate a sample as requested:

"As part of this module, you integrate sample order data with the existing account data in your Salesforce Developer Edition. To go through the steps, you need to install a test package that configures the necessary schema on the account object, creates a Customer ID field, and assigns a value for Customer ID to each account.

Follow these steps to install the package.
Open a browser, and click here to start the installation.
Select Install for Admins Only.
Click Install."

When I click on the "click here" it takes me to a SFDC log in page, where I try to select my Dev Org login in username and password (from my production enviro).  It does not work and even after trying to reset my password I never receive an email and cannot log in.

Please help! 
Thanks,
Rochelle

Rochelle, I'm going to pull the conversation for the other post [1] into one that you own so that we can get it marked as solved to help folks in the future.

So this is the difference in terminology between a "developer org" and a "developer sandbox".  If you are wanting to show this data in a clone of your production org, then you would do this in a developer sandbox.  However, in order to get it into a developer sandbox, you will need to contact someone at Salesforce (I'd start with your sales-rep) to get it enabled for you.  They may be able to do it in a sandbox for a PoC for free, but to get it enabled in a production org, you will need to pay for it.  A developer org is an instance of Salesforce that is not tied to any paid subscription and is only used for development purposes.

Also, you cannot use Trailhead with developer sandboxes because they have a different login path.  The developer sandboxes require you to use https://test.salesforce.com where as the developer orgs use https://login.salesforce.com.  Trailhead will only authenticate against login.salesforce.com and not against test.salesforce.com.  Additionally, you really want to have as clean of an instance as you can when doing trailhead modules since your business' business logic can interfere with Trailhead's checking.

Hi Rochelle,

May I request you please confirm if you have the following permission before installing the package for admins.

Specifies the following settings on the installing administrator’s profile and any profile with the "Customize Application" permission.
  • Object permissions—“Read,” “Create,” “Edit,” “Delete,” “View All,” and “Modify All” enabled
  • Field-level security—set to visible and editable for all fields
  • Apex classes—enabled
  • Visualforce pages—enabled
  • App settings—enabled
  • Tab settings—determined by the package creator
  • Page layout settings—determined by the package creator
  • Record Type settings—determined by the package creator
  • After installation, if you have Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, or Developer Edition, set the appropriate user and object permissions on custom profiles as needed.
For more information please check with below link which might help. Please let us know if it's resolved.

Thanks,
Nagendra

I have all the correct settings….the problem isn’t the inability to start the installation, the problem is trying to connect/log in to the Dev Org.
