    When using Salesforce in mappings or processes, the delivery execution produces an error similar to this one:

    This error can be raised when the Java Virtual Machine does not support the TLS 1.1 protocol, required by Salesforce.

    Java version 1.6 and version prior to are generally concerned, some other versions may be concerned too, depending on how they are packaged or configured.

    => Upgrade to the latest Java 7 or Java 8, or enable the missing protocol as described here.

    How to check that a java version supports TLS 1.1 :

    - Execute a process with a Beanshell Scripting action

    import javax.net.ssl.*;
    SSLParameters sslParameters;
    sslParameters = SSLContext.getDefault().getDefaultSSLParameters();
    String varname = "/PROTOCOL ";
    String[] vals = sslParameters.getProtocols();
    for (String val: vals) {
        __ctx__.publishVariable(varname+val, "OK");

    - After execution, the view "Session Variables" will show the list of available protocols, "PROTOCOL TLSv1.1" should be listed.




    Salesforce: error during connection to SF endpoint


      The following error occurs when trying to connect to Salesforce

      • from the Designer (for reversing)
      • or from the Runtime (when executing a process or mapping)
      java.lang.Exception: Error during connection to: https://login.salesforce.com/services/Soap/u/26.0 endPoint, with login: <salesforce account>, and securityToken: <security token>



      This may be due to Salesforce's Critical Update which enforces client applications to connect using protocol TLS 1.1 instead of TLS 1.0.

      TLS 1.1 is supported since the version 1.0.3 of the Stambia Salesforce connector (Stambia DI's Salesforce plugin). Please upgrade your plugin, in the Designer and in the Runtime.
