I've got a salesforce external data model working great having each user authorize into the external salesforce org, but I can't get it to work when I switch to org-wide credentials. What might I be doing wrong? Do I need to include the security token or something? Has anyone gotten org-wide (or profile-specific) credentials to work for salesforce external models?

Yep, it can be a bit tricky but I have seen that setup work before. You will need to include the security token at the end of the password. Additionally, here's some tips for troubleshooting if you run into any problems when accessing the data even after that.
