Why does Atlan require an admin user in Salesforce?

Atlan requires a Salesforce administrator to establish a connection between Atlan and Salesforce.

Once connected, Atlan will be able to extract all Salesforce objects β€” including corresponding fields, folders and child folders, as well as dashboards and reports β€” without having to enable object-level permissions and field-level security (FLS) for each object addition in the profile or permission sets.

Although it is possible to enable these permissions for non-admin users, only admins have the special permissions to oversee all newly added custom objects. This is regardless of which non-admin users created those custom objects or the permissions that were imposed on them.
