Trusted Cross-Org Redirections


As organizations increasingly rely on interconnected systems and applications, ensuring the security of data exchange between different Salesforce orgs is paramount. Recognizing this need, Salesforce has introduced a groundbreaking new feature in the Summer 2024 release: Allow Only Trusted Cross-Org Redirections. This feature aims to bolster security by restricting cross-org redirections to trusted sources, mitigating the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. In this blog post, we'll delve into the details of this new feature and explore its implications for Salesforce users.

Understanding Cross-Org Redirections:

Cross-org redirections occur when a user navigates from one Salesforce org to another, typically through authentication flows or external integrations. While these redirections are essential for seamless user experiences and integrated workflows, they also present security challenges, particularly when initiated from untrusted sources. Malicious actors may exploit cross-org redirections to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data or compromise user accounts.

Introducing "Allow Only Trusted Cross-Org Redirections":

With the Summer 2024 release Salesforce introduces a powerful new feature designed to mitigate the risks associated with cross-org redirections: Allow Only Trusted Cross-Org Redirections. This feature enables administrators to specify a list of trusted domains from which cross-org redirections are permitted. Any redirection attempts originating from domains outside the trusted list will be blocked, safeguarding sensitive data and protecting user accounts from unauthorized access.
