How To: Set up Salesforce Ticketing Integration

Oomnitza is proud to offer an integration with Salesforce's ticketing system. Setting up this integration requires an installation on the Salesforce end, as well as an installation on the Oomnitza end to allow for the systems to communicate. 

Installing the Oomnitza Plugin in Salesforce

  1. Login to your Salesforce instance.

  2. Open the Oomnitza-Salesforce plug-in package link (Note: The package ID may change from release to release)

  3. Provide password (oomnitza12345) and select "Install for All Users" as the installation type.

  4. When prompted, check “I acknowledge that I’m installing a Non-Salesforce Application that is not authorized for distribution as part of Salesforce’s AppExchange Partner Program.” checkbox, then click ‘Install’ and confirm granting access:

  5. Click "Done" after package is installed.

  6. Return to the Home page, and open the details for any Case.

  7. From the Case details page, click the Setup icon, then select "Edit Page:"

  8. Custom packages may only be installed on an instance with the configured domain. So if you're using a newly created instance, you may have to configure this setting. If your domain is already set up, you can skip to step 9.

    1. Click on ‘Deploy my domain’ link in ‘Custom’ Components

    2. In opened tab provide domain name, check its availability and click Register:

    3. Wait for the domain to register, then continue.

  9. Drag and drop the Plugin onto the page editor. Click on the plugin, and when prompted, provide URL of your Oomnitza instance (e.g. (:warning: Note: Your full Oomnitza URL is required.)

  10. Click Save, and your plugin will be installed.

    1. :warning: Please notice that if you use Salesforce Essentials Edition - setup from Oomnitza will be blocked, as this edition does not provide API access
