  2. Navigate to Setup -> Create -> Apps and in the Connected Apps section, click New to create a new connected application.

  5. Replace the <your_client_id> and  <your_redirect_uri> of the following URL with the values you created earlier and view the URL using a web browser.<your_client_id>&redirect_uri=<your_redirect_uri>
  6. Approve the application to access your salesforce account and note that the  browser will redirect you to the call-back URL (redirect URL):
  7. From the call-back URL, extract the authorization code.

  8. Send a direct POST request to the authorization server using the following request. Be sure to change the values here to the actual values that you got earlier.<your_client_id>&client_secret=<your_client_secret>&redirect_uri=<your_redirect_uri>&format=json

    In the above request, you can set the format as urlencoded, json or xml to get the response in one of the three formats.

  9. From the response that you get, extract the accessToken to access Salesforce via the created app. You also get a refreshToken to renew the accessToken when it expires.
