Glance for Salesforce Credentials
Some methods, with G4S in their names, are intended for use by Glance for Salesforce. These endpoints require the following data items for authentication:
- groupId: The Group ID, just like the partnerId mentioned earlier in this document
- adminName: The Glance Address or user name, like
example.glance.net, of the user
- adminCredentials: The Glance for Salesforce credentials generated for the user.
The Glance for Salesforce credentials is a 32-character string containing a hexadecimal number.
To get a credentials string for a particular username via a Glance API, use the
/services/ProvisioningService.asmx?op=ValidateUser method, and specify the username and password of the user. The G4SF credential appears in the
<credentials /> stanza of the result. Notice that the
ValidateUser method generates a new credentials string for the user on each invocation.
