How can I create authentication like Salesforce in my private custom connector? So client don't have to provide their access token or api keys, they just have login using their credentials and provide access to custom connector.

Bhavesh - the authentication for connectors is dependent on what is supported by the end application. What application are you looking to develop a customer connector for? Salesforce supports OAuth 2 authentication. You can refer to the connection SDK documentation at:

https://docs.workato.com/developing-connectors/sdk/guides/authentication.html

There is also best practices documentation at:

https://docs.workato.com/developing-connectors/sdk/guides/best-practices.html#root-key-specific


If you are new to Connector SDK development you may want to also checkout the Automation Institure course on Connector SDK.

I think he's asking how to do a UI-based authentication like the screenshot, rather than an API-based authentication. A lot of connectors that use a UI auth are for platforms that require permissions to be granted within the platform. The ability to call a UI auth in a browser window isn't covered in the SDK documentation (or at least I can't find it : ) How is it accomplished? I would also like to know!

Exactly Gary Blasco I have found many authentication type in documentation but they all asked for api key, access tokens, client secret etc. I don't want to ask that from my end user. I just want them to directly authenticate by using UI. Jayesh Shah I am looking to connect Deputy which supports UI based authentication like SalesForce.
