Collaborate more effectively and improve processes by sharing data across your Salesforce organizations. Provide users
with a seamless view of data in your other organizations so that they have a complete view of
the business. Setting up the Salesforce
adapter for Lightning Connect is quick and easy with point-and-click tools.
The Salesforce adapter for Lightning Connect uses the Force.com
REST API to access the data in
other organizations. Your users and the Force.com platform interact with the
other organizations’ data via external objects. See the Salesforce Help for details about the Salesforce adapter for Lightning Connect.
Suppose you store your inventory of products in one Salesforce organization. Perhaps you want
your regional and local branch offices, who have their own organizations, to see the latest
information about your stock. With the Salesforce adapter for Lightning Connect, those other organizations can easily access your data while respecting access restrictions
that you control.
