|Resolution||To be eligible for Metadata API access to Professional Edition organizations, your app must pass the AppExchange security review.
To request Metadata API access:
1. Submit your app for security review. See Steps in the Security Review.
2. After your app is approved, log a case in the Partner Community in AppExchange and Feature Requests > API Token Request, and specify SOAP for the type of token.
To make calls to the Metadata API, add an API token (client ID) in your app. Append this API token to the CallOptions SOAP header in API calls.
This special key enables your app to make calls to Professional Edition organizations even if the customer does not have API access.
