Example: Integrating ProfileSync with Salesforce

In the preceding section of this documentation, we walked through a generic set of procedures that must be carried out in order to connect ProfileSync to a target API. In this section, we'll take a closer look at a more specific scenario: integrating ProfileSync with Salesforce. Before reading this section, keep two things in mind:

  • The tasks detailed in this section are specific to integrating ProfileSync with Salesforce. To connect ProfileSync with a different target API requires a different set of procedures. 

  • Even if you are connecting ProfileSync to Salesforce, you could still end up with a different set of tasks depending on your environment, on the attributes and attribute values you want to copy to Salesforce, etc. 

You will work with your Akamai representative to determine the exact procedures that must be carried out to integrate ProfileSync and Salesforce.
