Install plugin

Option 1: Using the CLI

To use this plugin, install it with the Imposter CLI:

imposter plugin install -d mock-sfdc

This will install the plugin version matching the current engine version used by the CLI. The next time you run imposter up, the plugin will be available.

Option 2: Install the plugin manually

To use this plugin, download the imposter-plugin-mock-sfdc.jar JAR file from the Releases page.

Enable it with the following environment variables:


Using the plugin

Read the Configuration section to understand how to configure Imposter.

Note: Clients interacting with this plugin often require TLS/SSL to be enabled. If this is the case for your client, ensure that you use an https:// scheme for accessing the mock server. See the TLS/SSL section in the TLS/SSL section for more details.

Note: Typically, an OAuth2 login step precedes interactions with the SFDC API. As part of this, the mock server is required to return an instance_url to the client. Imposter uses the 'server URL', which is described in the Usage section.


For working examples, see:


Let's assume your configuration is in a folder named config.

Docker example:

docker run -ti -p 8080:8080 \
    -v $PWD/config:/opt/imposter/config \
    outofcoffee/imposter-all \
    --serverUrl http://localhost:8080

Standalone Java example:

java -jar distro/sfdc/build/libs/imposter-all.jar \
    --configDir ./config \
    --serverUrl http://localhost:8080

This starts a mock server using the SFDC plugin. Responses are served based on the configuration files inside the config folder.

Using the example above, you can connect a Salesforce client, such as ForceApi, to http://localhost:8080/ to interact with the API. In this example, you can interact with the Account SObject, as defined in sfdc-plugin-config.json and sfdc-plugin-data.json.
