Salesforce Connector June 2015 Release: What’s New

We are happy to announce the June ’15 release of the Salesforce Connector v6.2.1. With this release, we now support 56 different operations across multiple Salesforce APIs including the Apex REST API. This release also includes significant authentication capabilities such as OAuth v2.0 JWT bearer token and OAuth v2.0 SAML bearer assertion.

Benefits of using the Salesforce Connector

MuleSoft’s Salesforce Connector, as with any Anypoint Connector, provides a layer of abstraction that hides the complexity of the underlying APIs.

Securing an API in Anypoint Platform is easy. In a previous post we showed how Anypoint Platform for APIs allows you to fully protect your API. We concluded then that the combination of HTTPS and OAuth 2.0 are a rule-of-thumb best practice for Web API security. In this post, we’ll take a deeper dive into the makeup of a security configuration in Anypoint Platform and explore in more detail the areas of Basic Authentication and OAuth2 Authorization in the context of Identity Management.

Simplify authentication and user management with Mule and Stormpath

The dreaded user table. Think about it: whenever you start working on a new end-user application, you’ll have to create a table to store emails, user information and passwords. And then you’ll need to add support for the password reset workflow. And so on and so forth. The wheel gets re-invented time and again. Of course, you may go sophisticated and decide to manage users in LDAP or even – gasp – ActiveDirectory.

If you reached this blog and you are not a Mule user (yet) keep reading, I will not cover anything Mule specific. If you are new to OAuth or want to get an introduction to its concepts this post is the right one!

Authentication is vital in any kind of system but it is even more relevant when it comes to the web. As the web grows,

Securing REST Web Services against LDAP

Many Mule users create RESTful services but they are not always clear on the way to authenticate and apply authorization to a RESTful Web Service. I have seen questions about this topic so I decided to write a tutorial that covers a common use case. We’re going to use Jersey, Spring Security and LDAP and of course Mule to pull  it all together.  I will show you how to do the following:

  1. Expose REST resource using Jersey
  2. Secure the REST resource using HTTP Basic Authentication
  3. Authenticate and authorize users against an LDAP Directory
  4. Apply authorisation based on users groups to this REST resource
