I want to create an "API Only" user but can't find the checkbox to do that. I can see "API Enabled" as one of the checkboxes on the profile and permission set pages but I think that's different. How can I create an API only user ?

Hi Gopal,

There is an option called "API only" below "API enabled" in profile. You won't see this option if you are looking at a Developer edition. It's shown only in the Enterprise edition and above. Yeah, you will also see it if you have a Developer edition that's spawned out of an enterprise edition but NOT in a brand new Developer edition.

This permission basically restricts that user from logging into Salesforce through the Standard UI.

Hope that helps !
