Release 6.0.2




You can create connections to your Salesforce instance from Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta® Enterprise Edition. This connector is designed as a wrapper around the Salesforce REST API.


NOTE: This feature is in Beta release.

  • This is a read-only connection. 


  • The account used to login from Designer Cloud Powered by Trifacta Enterprise Edition must access Salesforce through a security token. 

    NOTE: Please contact your Salesforce administrator for the Host Name and the Security Token values.

  • The logged-in user must have required access to the tables and schema.

  • If you haven't done so already, you must create and deploy an encryption key file for the Trifacta node to be shared by all relational connections. For more information, see Create Encryption Key File.


For more information, see Enable Relational Connections.


To create this connection:

  • In the Connections page, select the Applications tab. Click the Salesforce card.
