Connected Applications incorporates Salesforce with an application utilizing APIs. Connected apps habituate standard OAuth protocols for authentication, facilitate single sign-on, and facilitate tokens to be used with Salesforce APIs. Connected Apps permits Salesforce Administrators to set different security approaches and have an explicit control over the Connected Apps and their corresponding users.
Connected Apps basically portray a connection between an outside application and a Salesforce client, and characterize a passage point into the Platform. The advantage of this relationship is that the client can get to Force.com assets without revealing their delicate login qualifications and passwords to the application.
The procedure for making brand new Connected App begins with characterizing the OAuth metadata about the application. The metadata incorporates:
- Fundamental enlightening and contact data for the Connected App
- The OAuth degrees and callback URL for the Connected App
- Discretionary IP ranges where the user can login into Connected App
- Details about mobile policies that the connected app can enforce.
For connected apps that use OAuth service providers, provide the following information.
- OAuth scopes (permissions given by the user running the app) and callback URL for the connected app. In return, Salesforce provides an OAuth Consumer Key and a Consumer Secret to authorize the connected app.
- How the OAuth request handles the ID token in a token response.

For connected apps that use SAML service providers, provide the following information, which you get from the service provider.
- Entity ID
- ACS (assertion consumer service)
- Subject type
- Name ID format
- Issuer for authorizing the connected app
How you convey an associated application relies upon where it’s made.
- IT divisions develop connected applications to use in their org.
- ISVs and other engineers create applications in a Developer org and after that disseminate them to other orgs, for instance, through AppExchange.
You can install new versions of Connected Application when the designer apprise you that new version is accessible/available. To coordinate with Salesforce all the more firmly, you can reveal the Connected application as a canvas application.
