Import bridge: 'SalesForceObjects' 10.0.1

This bridge authenticates the consumer and retrieves available physical metadata (e.g., Tables).
It uses the username-password authentication flow that assumes the consumer already has the user's credentials.

When you do not have username-password authentication parameter values but have an access token and your Salesforce instance URL you can specify them using the Miscellaneous parameter (see its description for details). In this case, you still need to fill all mandatory parameters with some text that will be ignored.

In the event that users will be submitting Salesforce Documents, certain security settings must be configured to allow this access on Standard Objects and Custom Objects.
To configure permissions:
- Within Salesforce, click on Setup and then click on Manage Users
- Under the Manage Users tree click on Profiles
- Once the Profiles appear on the right, select which Profile you want to edit and click on the Edit link next to the corresponding profile

Standard Objects: Ensure that the "Documents" section has the Read permissions selected.
Custom Objects: Ensure that the Read permissions selected for each custom objects.
