Detailed Description

Creates a Salesforce Opportunity record with the given parameters and returns the Opportunity Id of the created Opportunity 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 Opportunity object which is sent to the Salesforce REST API to create an Opportunity 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.

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