Salesforce Social Identity Provider Configuration Details

You can set up the Salesforce social identity provider through the Admin UI or in a conf/identityProvider-salesforce.json file. IDM generates the identityProvider-salesforce.json file when you configure and enable this social identity provider in the Admin UI. Alternatively, you can create the file manually.

The following table includes the information shown in the Admin UI Salesforce Provider pop-up window, along with associated information in the identityProvider-salesforce.json file:
