Salesforce login has stopped working and gives error no matter what I do

I was using the basic authentication to login to salesforce. It was working perfectly earlier with no issues. Recently, the login started failing and is always the case.

- I tried logging into data loader and it works fine, so it's not an issue with my system.

- I tried logging in using OAuth and this fails too. I get an error message "The returned authentication token is null" even if I explicitly provide the token file.

 

The error I get when I try to login using the basic login is :

Can anyone please help me out with this ?

Hi,

The URL https://www.salesforce.com/blablabla isn't available anymore.

You need to use https://login.salesforce.com/blablabla or https://test.salesforce.com/blablabla depending on where your want to go (Production or sandbox).

Hello,

Did you create a salesforce connection from metadata in your repository tree? Could you please indicate on which talend build version you got this issue?

Best regards

Sabrina

Hi Sabrina, 

 

I'm using Talend Open Studio for Data Integration Build 6.4.1.20170623_1246

The error I'm getting is actually while creating the connection in my metadata repository itself.

The connection (in my metadata repository) that I created earlier was working fine until last week. I tried to edit the connection and test the connection but it fails over and over.

Re: Salesforce login has stopped working and gives error no matter what I do

I figured out the solution. The Salesforce URL was salesforce.com, it had to be changed to login.salesforce.com

 

Here is how I solved it:

Go to Metadata -> Salesforce -> Create Salesforce -> Advanced

 

Change Salesforce URL from "https://www.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/39.0" to "https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/39.0"
