A “Connected App” is an application that can connect to salesforce.com over Identity and Data APIs. Connected Apps use the standard OAuth 2.0 protocol to authenticate, provide Single Sign-On, and acquire access tokens for use with Salesforce APIs. In addition to standard OAuth capabilities, connected apps allow Salesforce admins to set various security policies and have explicit control over who can use the corresponding apps.
Look for Connected Apps in your development environment by going to Setup > Create > Apps

- Connected Apps is located below the standard Apps pane.
- Click New next to Connected Apps, and create your Connected App.
To authenticate using OAuth, you must create a connected app that defines your application’s OAuth settings for the Salesforce organization.
When you develop an external application that needs to authenticate with Salesforce, you need to define it as a new connected app within the Salesforce organization that informs Salesforce of this new authentication entry point.

Steps to create
Before you can get up and running with the Attend Salesforce Integration, you need to create a Salesforce Connected App. This can be done in Salesforce by following these steps.
Log into Salesforce, click “Setup” in the upper right, and click “Create” on the left navigation.
Select “Apps” from the drop down.
(If this doesn’t appear, you will need to request permission from your Salesforce administrator.)
Create a new Connected App by scrolling down the page, finding Connected Apps, and clicking the “New” button. (If this section isn’t visible, you will need to request permission from your Salesforce Administrator.)
Make sure the following settings are defined in Salesforce to enable your new app.
Connected App Name: Attend Inc
API Name: Attend_Inc
Contact Email: Your email
Enable OAuth Settings: Checked
Callback URL: https://cluster1.attend.com/auth/salesforce/callback
Selected OAuth Scopes:
Access and manage your data (api)
Access custom permissions (custom_permissions)
Access your basic information (id, profile, email, address, phone)
Full access (full)
Perform requests on your behalf at any time (refresh_token, offline_access)
Provide access to your data via the Web (web)
Click “Save” to complete your Connected App setup.
After clicking “save” you’ll be redirected to a new page where you’ll be able to copy your Consumer Key and Consumer Secret. You’ll need these while you set up your connect in Attend.
