Streaming API with Overage Authenticated Website Portal licenses

1. Anyone know if the Streaming API is consumable by Authenticated Website licenses?

2. Do they fall into any outside categories pertaining to limits?

3. We'd like to set up a live chatroom for authenticated users utilizing custom objects with the Streaming API exposed in a portal. Anyone foresee any platform limitations?

 

Thanks

Chris

1. Yes.

 

2. The same limits that applies to all other editions apply to you as well. If you feel the limits are too small and have business case for higher limits, please contact salesforce support with details for your business case. We will be happy to work with you to bump up your limits (number of concurrent connections and per day event count)

 

3. There will be a delay 0-3 seconds roughly on events to be delivered. Other than that it should work fine. Please refer to the Streaming documentation for other details:

Hi Vinod,

 

Thank you!

 

We need to show the customer proof of concept. Do you have this running anywhere or a sample similar that we could show them?

 

Cheers,

Chris

Streaming API is already GA and is being used by a lots of customers. I cannot give you reference for other customers, but internally the "Service Cloud Console" is using the streaming API. That will be a good "live" proof of concept.

 

Perhaps these links might help:

Also, the step by step instructions are available in the doc I pasted above. That should help you get started very quickly.

Hi Vinod,

 

Video 2 showing the stream off to the right will help show my customer POC. It's about 18k in SF Auth Web licenses / yr.

 

Thanks,

Chris
