Services or capabilities described in Amazon Web Services documentation might vary by Region. To see the differences applicable to the China Regions, see Getting Started with Amazon Web Services in China (PDF).

Configuring Salesforce

Before you can use Amazon Glue to transfer data to or from Salesforce, you must meet these requirements:

Minimum requirements

The following are minimum requirements:

  • You have a Salesforce account.

  • Your Salesforce account is enabled for API access. API access is enabled by default for the Enterprise, Unlimited, Developer, and Performance editions.

  • Your Salesforce account allows you to install connected apps. If you lack access to this functionality, contact your Salesforce administrator. For more information, see Connected Apps in the Salesforce help.

If you meet these requirements, you’re ready to connect Amazon Glue to your Salesforce account. Amazon Glue handles the remaining requirements with the Amazon managed connected app.

The Amazon managed connected app for Salesforce

The Amazon managed connected app helps you create Salesforce connections in fewer steps. In Salesforce, a connected app is a framework that authorizes external applications, like Amazon Glue, to access your Salesforce data.

  • Create a Salesforce connection by using the Amazon Glue console.

  • When you configure the connection, set OAuth grant type to Authorization code.
