Are there any plans to create native Salesforce connection nodes that will function with just login/PW (or third party auth)? I am aware of the REST functionality available, but that requires additional permissions/privileges/tokens/etc. that organizations are unwilling to grant. Something like how Tableau connects to SFDC would be fantastic, as Tableau does not require these additional pieces.
Unfortunately not for now. As you said it there is REST…
Stay tuned for any new announcements
Thanks for the reply. For REST to work, I need IT support, which doesn’t come easily for the business operations area. It would be great if there was a node that functioned like Tableau or PowerQuery.
You are welcome. Your request has been registered and maybe in future there will be such a node Br,
Great. Thank you so much!
with new 4.2.0 version KNIME provides a set of nodes to connect to and read data from Salesforce!
See here: https://www.knime.com/whats-new-in-knime-42#salesforce
After using these, I am a bit dissatisfied. The nodes are generating SOQL and returning JSON. Why not make it point-and-click just like the DB Column Filter node, then return a formatted table??
Thank you for your feedback.
I understand your point. We will be launching another node where the user will be able to make a simple select query with point and click and return a KNIME Table. So I hope this will help make things easier for you.
