Vendor installation instructions


This connector uses Azure Functions to connect to the Salesforce Lightning Platform REST API to pull its logs into Microsoft Sentinel. This might result in additional data ingestion costs. Check the Azure Functions pricing page for details.

(Optional Step) Securely store workspace and API authorization key(s) or token(s) in Azure Key Vault. Azure Key Vault provides a secure mechanism to store and retrieve key values. Follow these instructions to use Azure Key Vault with an Azure Function App.

NOTE: This data connector depends on a parser based on a Kusto Function to work as expected which is deployed as part of the solution. To view the function code in Log Analytics, open Log Analytics/Microsoft Sentinel Logs blade, click Functions and search for the alias SalesforceServiceCloud and load the function code or click here. The function usually takes 10-15 minutes to activate after solution installation/update.

STEP 1 - Configuration steps for the Salesforce Lightning Platform REST API

  1. See the link and follow the instructions for obtaining Salesforce API Authorization credentials.
  2. On the Set Up Authorization step choose Session ID Authorization method.
  3. You must provide your client id, client secret, username, and password with user security token.


Ingesting data from on an hourly interval may require additional licensing based on the edition of the Salesforce Service Cloud being used. Please refer to Salesforce documentation and/or support for more details.
