Getting Credentials

Configuring credentials in Cobalt

App settings page lets you configure the authentication settings for an OAuth 2.0 based application. For your customers to provide you authorization to access their data, they would first need to install your application. This page lets you set up your application credentials.

Setting up application client credentials

Cobalt lets you use pre-configured applications to play around. You can do so by selecting Use our credentials. However, if you wish to use your own application, select Use your own credentials. Provide the aquired Client Id and Client secret and save it.

Actions and triggers

Once the above setup is completed, you can create orchestrations of your use-cases using Salesforce Financial Services Cloud actions and triggers. Following are the set of Salesforce Financial Services Cloud actions and triggers supported by Cobalt.
