Salesforce login Organization behind proxy

0 votes
I'm trying to use Python and Simple Salesforce to connect to SalesForce. My goal is to discover a Python equivalent to the command line command - sfdx force:auth:web:login -r $url. I run this programme after exporting the proxy variables http proxy and https proxy from the command line.

So far, I've looked through the examples and documentation and haven't been able to locate anything that will obtain me the token. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I know how to call sdfx process, but I'm wondering if there's a way to do it in Python.

simple_salesforce does not provide most forms of OAuth authentication, like force:auth:web:login. The three ways to log in with simple_salesforce are:

  1. Provide your own access token, obtained through performing OAuth authentication elsewhere.
  2. Perform a SOAP login by providing a username, password, and security token (or other required parameters depending on your org's specific configuration).
  3. Use the JWT OAuth flow with a username and certificate.

Of the three, JWT is preferable when doing server-to-server integration, and SOAP login for interactive use at a console.

Hope this helps!
