Ongoing investment by Oracle delivers constant enhancements to the salesforce.com Eloqua integration app
Our technical support team is constantly reviewing app features each release to ensure your organisation is creating the best possible CX
What is the Salesforce integration app?
The Salesforce Integration app creates an integration between Oracle Eloqua and Salesforce CRM to send data between the two platforms. Leverage the Salesforce Integration app to:
  • Transfer the leads generated from marketing campaigns in Oracle Eloqua into Salesforce CRM so they are nurtured and synchronised as sales leads.
  • Use the app within a program or campaign canvas to create or update records in supported Salesforce objects in real time. Typical use cases include lead creation, lead updates, and contact updates.
  • Schedule imports from Salesforce CRM to Oracle Eloqua for supported Salesforce objects.
You can use the app for various marketing qualification and lead generation use cases. For example, you can configure a listener step to listen for contacts who complete a form.

Once the contact is added to the program canvas, you may want to decide to create a lead for the contact. Depending on the next decision, you can configure this app to either create a new lead or update an existing lead within Oracle Eloqua.

IMPORTANT: Changes to Topliners URL's used on this page
In July 2023 Oracle moved Topliners to a new home, Oracle Customer Connect. We use numerous links from Topliners on this page to take you directly to Eloqua Release detail to save you time.

We've been advised that the "old" Topliners environment will remain in a read-only state. However, we don't know for how long. We'll do our best to ensure all links are up to date.

The upside is that this page won't change and can serve as an archive of the historical listings of app changes etc.
