Can we access Orgs of clients who install our AppExhange App?

Here's the situation...


We have an external application that collects various data.  We like to have clients install an app in their Org that allows us to import data into their org without us having to collect a user/pass from them.


It seems like the partner API should be able to do this, but can't find it documented anywhere.


Thanks for any help.



Using the API requires a connection to an Org and for that you need a username/password. I don't know for sure, but I would assume you can't do what you are describing. Sounds like a security risk to me.


Have you looked at going the other way? Calling an external webservice from your app and pulling the data in.
