How to use Facebook, Twitter, Wechat, Microsoft, Yahoo & many more as a Identity Provider for Salesforce with the help of Janrain Auth Provider – Video included
Salesforce supports many Auth Provider out of the box, which can be used as Identity provider. Some of the examples – Facebook, Google, Github, Salesforce, OpenId Connect , Linked In and Janrain.
If you are in need to use Wechat , Yahoo or some other social account like Microsoft, don’t get disappointed.

How Janrain is different compared to other SSO solutions for Salesforce
If you are new to Microsoft Azure, you can get free trial access however you might need to provide Credit card details to use few features. You would not get charged because we get $200 worth credit for new Account that can be used in a span of year.
I was not able to use Azure’s Active Directory SSO for Just in Time (JIT) provisioning. Rather, it connects to Salesforce and creates user whenever user is provisioned in Active Directory, just like Identity Connect
Security token is mandatory. In case if you have IP login range then we don’t get Security token. To fix this, we can divide our password to have some value in Security token. As final password anyways is Password + Security Token. Shown in below image
When we assign any user to Enterprise application (in our case its Salesforce), we need to map profile to the user.
Note : Everything we are discussing here is completely covered as part of Live coding in Apex Salesforce Saturday organized by Amit. Would like to thank Mohith for his support and answers during the demo. It also shows How SalesforceDX can be used daily by developers to perform development.
Introduction to Jasmine framework and getting started with Behavior Driven Development (BDD) testing, along with Complete Source code and Video
Majorly, Jasmine is made up of three functions
Like standard frameworks, it also has setup method and tear down methods
Video tutorial and Complete source code to use Salesforce JWT OAuth to authenticate Nodejs Application
JWT OAuth uses digital signature to authenticate external application with Salesforce. JWT can be used to request an OAuth access token from Salesforce when a client wants to use a previous authorization.
Parallel execution of browsers in Selenium with the help of TestNG and determining maximum operating capacity of custom code in Salesforce
When we build any custom solution in Salesforce, key is to write an efficient and meaningful Apex test classes for sure. However sometime we may need to test how custom application would behave in maximum operating capacity. Here, I am talking about Load Testing of custom applications built on top of Force.com platform. Recently I needed to push my code to its limit to know how many concurrent users can use it before hitting any governor limits. Quickly I realize that its time to call my friends Selenium and TestNG.
Before doing any extensive stress or load testing on Salesforce, we must need to contact Salesforce support and explain them what we are trying to achieve. More detail available in this official Salesforce blog post.
If we already have Salesforce Metadata API, Force.com IDE and other tools then why do we need one more tool like Salesforce DX ?
In tools like Changeset, Metadata API or Force.com IDE, source of truth is Sandbox. Although we can setup process and continuous integration (CI) to use some source code management (SCM) like Git or SVN. However these kind of setup takes time, expertise and lot of effort.
Salesforce DX not only solves above problem but
Ability to consider SCM as source of truth
Use any favorite IDE or any SCM
Powerful CLI to help minimizing complexity of setting up CI
Updated Force.com IDE to support Salesforce DX if you are not comfortable with CLI
and most important, spin off Scratch Orgs within minutes through script to quickly work on POC or package based development
What are scratch Orgs ?
Salesforce DX can be enabled for any Salesforce instance and they are known as Developer Hub. One Developer Hub can have multiple Scratch Orgs. Scratch Orgs are temporary Salesforce org which can be created quickly and metadata can be deployed from SCM. These kind of Orgs can be used by developers to perform quick proof of concept or build and test packages. Once package is build and saved back on SCM, scratch org can be destroyed easily.
