Setting up the integration
What can I do if my integration is automatically disconnecting?
The integration requires your Salesforce session settings to be not set to a locked IP address. If your session settings remain locked, your integration will be disconnected once a session expires.To disable Salesforce sessions being locked to an IP address
- Log in to your Salesforce account.
- Click on the cog in the upper right pane, and click Setup.
- In the left navigation pane under SETTINGS > Security, select Session Settings.
- Review and ensure the Lock sessions to the IP address from which they originated checkbox is not selected.
How do I resolve a ''redirect_uri_mismatch" error when connecting Zendesk to Salesforce?
Check your settings in your Connected App. For more information, see the article: Why do I receive the “redirect_uri_mismatch” error upon connecting the integration?
Syncing data from Salesforce to Zendesk
Use this checklist to help verify that your data sync is set up correctly.
- Check that you have the right Salesforce API settings requirements when setting up the integration.
- Sync filter: Confirm you are not using any unsupported Salesforce fields such as Formula Field, Lookup, and Text Area fields in the filtering. This is a Salesforce Streaming API limitation.
- Sync filter: Confirm you are using the correct syntax in the sync filter values. They are case-sensitive, comma-separated, and must exactly match the Salesforce field value. If you are using a Salesforce picklist field for filtering, the value is the API name.
- Sync field mapping: Check the field mapping which includes Name to Name. This is mandatory because organizations can't be created in Zendesk without a name.
- When testing the sync, make updates to the Salesforce fields that are mapped to Zendesk. The sync is only triggered when a mapped field is updated.
- Formula fields will update only when another mapped field is updated. This is another Salesforce streaming API limitation.
What can I do if my data sync is being automatically disabled?
Check that you have not reached your streaming API limits. For more information, see the article: How can I check my Streaming API limits and usage?
Syncing tickets from Zendesk to Salesforce
To check if your Ticket Sync package was successfully installed
- Go to Salesforce > Setup > Deployment Status.
Check for a deployment time for when you installed the package to see if the deployment was successful or failed. If the deployment failed, Salesforce will provide you with detailed errors. Review the errors and resolve them.
Go to Salesforce > Object Manager > Case > Fields & Relationships. Check if additional case fields were created in your Salesforce Case Object, as shown below for each standard Zendesk ticket field.
- Once you have confirmed steps 2 and 3 were successful, continue with setting up TIcket Sync.
To check if you configured Ticket Sync correctly
- Confirm that you have activated the Salesforce trigger in Zendesk.
- Confirm that the trigger JSON body wasn't edited and is as shown below. Any change to this JSON body will cause the sync to fail. The error shown below is expected.
- Confirm you have entered the correct Record Type ID. If the Record Type ID is incorrect, the sync will fail. The Record Type ID is not your Salesforce Org ID.
- Confirm that all mandatory Salesforce case fields are included in custom ticket field mappings. If you do not map all required fields, the sync will fail.
