I was wondering if Salesforce provided an API to use their login authentication? I am thinking of integrating it into a web application I am building and would like to use it for access control. If that is possible, do they have user groups? My application would only be available for managers of companies (only those users who have permission to escalate cases) and that would be a great help to utilize.
I have a requirement to integrate knowledge base with some other external sites. I have some questions on this:
1) How can we categorize the Articles at high level.
For example We have "LOB A"and "LOB B" as two LOBs(Lines of Businesses).When some one visits our ABC corporate website we would like to show top 5 FAQs from both "LOB A"and "LOB B". But when user visits only the "LOB A" specific website we would like to show only "LOB A" related Top 5 articles.
2) We would like to show different Knowledgebase Articles for (Customer portal) Authenticated and other users. Should we handle this based on the high level data category types or by Roles
3) Is it best practice to retrieve and render the Knowledgebase through Web service APIs instead of using the Public knowledgebase with Iframes
Any idea on this?
I need to display all the question answers like help in single page. when the suer clicks the question link at the top, it should takes to the answers in the same page.
is it possible to do the same functionality using Article? if yes, how we can do that?
I have a scenario like the system should create a case from email automatically, when it receives the email to support engineer email id from customer.
It seems system can create a case when it receives particular configured email id using email service.
is there anyway to do this?
I need to restrict the use from entering duplicate records, for this need to validate two fields.
Fields: category Name - Text
Type - Picklist
Here each type should have unique values only, but the category values can repeat in another type.
F(AND(Name = VLOOKUP( $ObjectType.Category__c.Fields.Name , $ObjectType.Category__c.Fields.Name, Name ), NOT(Id=VLOOKUP
($ObjectType.Category__c.Fields.Id , $ObjectType.Category__c.Fields.Name, Name ))) && TEXT(Type__c ) = TEXT( Type__c ), true, false )
But this will not work properly. Any Idea?

I am new here. Please if anyone know, do i need to set up any thing esle on CTI system ( not existing CTI adapter) to connect the CTI system to plug into the CTI adapter? In this case, I have to develop the CTI adapter to connect with the Seimens CTI system. As my beginner knowladge, I think developing the adapter and install into the manchine without any extra configurations ( except in the Developer Guide) is Ok. Am I right?
for better understand,
Develop the Adapter (full support CTI system functions) --> deploy the adapter --> install in the machine ---> that is it ???
please reply, Thank you in advance.
I've logged in at SalesForce.com and then clicked "Run Tutorials" (enrolled as basic developer). This takes me to DeveloperForce with a list of tutorials. Where does one go from here?? Nothing clicks or activates and it appears I've been signed out (some button called "De Login" appears at the top - signing in again just repeats the loop).
Also dl'd something called Force.com Workbook and see that I have to create something called a Sandbox. However, nothing resembling "sandbox" appears on the path yourname>setup>data management>sandbox.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I use eclipse as IDE for salesforce. If I save a class, trigger, page or something else, I have always to save these changes manually (with right mouseclickk/ Force/ save to server). I think normally that should be done as soon as I save with Ctrl-S.
Does anyone know which parameter may be wrong in my IDE?
