    Default Kettle - Salesforce Input Plugin installation and Use

    We have installed Pentaho EE 3.X version recently. I want to install Salesforce Plugin to that and use it in kettle to get the data from Salesforce to my local Oracle tables.
    1. Where can I get the Stable version?
    2. Do we hav any documentation on how to use Salesforce Plugin (paramaters we need to insert while using)?

    Since 3.2 (if my memory is good) is a core step (no need a plugin)...but before you have to get the plugin :

    and read the INSTALL.txt file :-)

    The step is easy to use :

    - just need you login /password (in fact token+password)
    - select a module
    - get fields (see fields tab) and run ...

    Default Did not able to see Salesforce plugin

    Thanks for your quick response Samatar.

    I am using Kettle 3.1.2 (EE). Build Version - 10064. I did follow your steps.

    1. Copied extracted WinZip into - C:\Program Files\pentaho\design-tools\data-integration\plugins\steps\SalesforcePlugin.
    2. Restarted BI server and Spoon.

    I did no find this plugin in the Spoon?
    Where can I see this SalesforcePlugin in Spoon - Input or Transforrm?

    Hello! I just answered how to connect to salesforce from behind a firewall in this posting:
    You just need to set the _JAVA_OPTIONS command line param and pass proxy settings to spoon. I haven't tried it using kitchen yet but it probably works the same.
    Hope that helps!
