Improvements to Named Credentials in Salesforce

#1MinuteTip Named Credentials is used in Salesforce to integrate Salesforce with external systems. It contains a built-in authentication mechanism to authenticate with external systems and makes integration a little easier.

With the evolution of technology, Salesforce has improved the features in Named Credentials also. This includes:

  • Pass custom headers (name/value pairs)
  • Link named credentials to permission sets to grant explicit access to users
  • Temporary access and role assumption for Amazon IAM:
  • Reuse credential across different API endpoints
  • Support for custom setup UIs
