Salesforce Opportunity Create VERSION 2

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.
