Hi,

You could share them SFDC REST API for details.

Thanks

WEN JIEWEN JIE
You only need to provide SFDC standard REST API, they will find how to call SFDC by API.
Imtiaz PashaImtiaz Pasha
for the custom field how to create the APIs.
WEN JIEWEN JIE
For customized object and corresponding fields, SFDC will generate metadata directly.
Imtiaz PashaImtiaz Pasha
okay got it , so that i can give them the end point API name to fetch the data
WEN JIEWEN JIE
Yes. They could get objct and corresponding fields API name by API. Or you could share these with them directly, then they only need to fouce on the logic part.

Hi Wen ,

I want to  Changes to existing REST API to support Lead creation from third party , that means Insert API , 

so third party asking me the API details for pushing the leads like authentication details , end point and sample request and response format. he is asking if possible please provide curl .. any idea can you help me on this ?
Imtiaz PashaImtiaz Pasha
Hi Wen Any Idea On this ?
WEN JIEWEN JIE
Hi Imtiza,

First, you need to create connect app for external integration system. Then share them Consumer Key and Consumer Secret.
Second, you need to create an integration account for them. (same as a general user). Assign the corresponding permission. (e.g. CRUD permission on Lead object.) Then share the username, password and security token to them.
Finally, based on these inforamtion they could call SFDC to get access token then insert record to Lead table.

Check this one : https://github.com/asagarwal/salesforce-rest-api-with-java/blob/master/salesforce_rest_api_2.java 

Thanks.

Hi Wen,

I have done evrything they are able to access now , but problem is in the account object  , account name  they are not able fetch it, its showing error in the postman saying you do have access to field permission on your profile but i have given the permission
WEN JIEWEN JIE
Hi Imtiza,

Please also check field level security for account's fields. (read, write permission)

Thanks.
Imtiaz PashaImtiaz Pasha

WEN JIEWEN JIE
Does the Invoices  is a customized sobject ? If yes, please also re-check object, and field permisison for the integration account profile.
Imtiaz PashaImtiaz Pasha
Yes customised ..but third party coudnt able to fetch PDF attachment which is generated in SF , third party doing from POstman to fetch that .
