How do I give the oAuth option only to Admin Users and hide it for other Users?

Last Updated: Feb 14, 2018 10:43PM PST
We recommend that only System Administrators should be able to process oAuth for V4S Mobile. By default, all Salesforce users can see oAuth option when logged into Salesforce. The default permission to access V4S objects is through the ID of the System Administrator who installed the V4S Mobile app from the AppExchange. If a different user clicks on the V4S Mobile oAuth link, it could cause problems in your login process for all users.

Therefore, we suggest that only Systems Administrators have access to the oAuth link.  Systems Administrators can enable or disable oAuth option to other Salesforce users.

Here is what you need to do to hide the  oAuth authentication link,
  • Login to Salesforce using the Systems Administrator ID that you used to install V4S Mobile
  • Click on Setup
  • Click on Apps
  • Click on Installed Packages
  • Click on Connected Apps
  • From Connected Apps oAuth list, click Manage App Policies for V4S Mobile oAuth
  • Click on Edit Policies
  • From oAuth Policies tab select Admin approved Users are Pre-Authorized from the "Permitted Users" drop down,
  • Click "OK" on the alert pop up for making changes 
  • Click Save
Now no Salesforce User can see the oAuth option,  including the Admin User. This way no one will be able to process oAuth for V4S Mobile.

But you do need to give the Systems Administrator the ability to process oAuth for V4S Mobile.  Here are the instructions for providing the oAuth option to System Administrators
  • Login to Salesforce as a Systems Administrator
  • Click on Setup
  • Click on System Administrator
  • Click on the Edit button
  • Scroll down to Connected App Access section
  • Click the Check box for V4S Mobile oAuth
  • Click on Save
Now, only Admin user will have the option to process oAuth for V4S Mobile.
