Detailed Description

Creates a Salesforce Account record with the given parameters and returns the Account Id of the created Account record. The first thing that the handler does is obtain an access token using the inputted info values, which is used to authenticate the rest of the calls that are made. The parameter inputs are then used to build an Account object which is sent to the Salesforce REST API to create an Account with those values.

1. Go to Setup, which is in the dropdown menu under your name in the upper righthand corner.

2. On the left sidebar, your Security Token can be found under Personal Setup > My Personal Information > Reset My Security Token.

3. To get the Client ID and Client Secret, Navigate back to Setup and go to Manage Apps.

4. Create a new Connected App, and fill in the basic information for the app.

5. Check the Enable OAuth Settings checkbox and put https://auth for your callback url.

6. Under selected OAuth scopes, add Access and manage your data (api) to your selected scopes and save.
