    We recently were tasked to answer an RFP from a customer who, besides wanting to perform TDM operations on their Mainframe, Distributed, and noSQL databases, wanted to have consistency with their Salesforce.com sandbox data.   As TDM doesn't have Salesforce on its support matrix, we created a demo using the Salesforce DataLoader export/import utility.   I've attached a runbook that details how to setup a demo of Synthetic Data Generation and Masking for a Salesforce "Contact" entity as an example.   If you have Salesforce data requirements, or wish to see how TDM might be configured with a DataSource that can only be accessed via an import/export utility, this document may be useful as an example.   Enjoy!

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for sharing the step document for obfuscating salesforce.

    I have followed all the steps as mentioned but while connecting to Salesforce via dataloader, I am getting below error.

    "Failed to send request to https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/49.0"

    Could you please assist here.

    Thanks,
    Ashish

    Hi Ashish, a quick search seems to indicate the most common situation is that your organization uses a proxy server.   You must specify that information to connect.
