AlertBlast: Setting up a Salesforce Integration

Note: In order for AlertBlast to get your Salesforce campaigns, you need to make sure you have a user with API credentials. 

Add API Credentials to Users in Salesforce

Note: This section needs to be completed by your Salesforce Admin. 

1. Go into your Salesforce instance Setup.

2. Go to Administration > Users > Profiles and open the profile the User belongs to.

3. Scroll down to Administrative Permissions and make sure the user has API Enabled checked.



Reset Your Security Token

Note: This section needs to be completed by the Salesforce User assigned to the security token and allowed API Access.
 

If you don’t know your current security token (used for API), you need to reset it. If you know your current security token, please skip this section and go to the “Setting up Salesforce Integration in AlertBlast” section.
