Create CSP Trusted Sites to Use WebSocket Connections

To configure a WebSocket connection, add a CSP Trusted Site that uses the secure wss protocol. The insecure ws protocol isn't supported.

Where: This change applies to orgs with Lightning components in Lightning Experience, Lightning Communities, Salesforce Classic, and all versions of the Salesforce app.

Why: The WebSocket API is a web standard for two-way communication between a user's browser and an external server. With this API, you can send messages to a server and receive event-driven responses without having to poll the server for a reply.

How: A sample URL for a WebSocket connection in a CSP Trusted Site is:

wss://example.com/socketserver
