Customisation is essential part of any SaaS implementation to capture unique business needs. In Salesforce SaaS application also, there could be several use-cases where user might need to create a new Custom Object or add custom fields into existing Standard Object such as Contact, Account and Organisation etc. In this blog I will be showing how can we add Custom fields e.g. Degree name, Passing Year etc. into existing Salesforce Contact object and can update the same field using Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC) Salesforce adapter. I will write another separate blog later where I can show how a completely new Custom Object can be created in Salesforce and updated through Oracle Integration Salesforce Adapter.
Before, I go into deep drive, just want to highlight the core objective of this blog to show Salesforce configuration and OIC Salesforce adapter configuration, I am assuming reader has already basis understanding of OIC product features such as Connection, Integration, mapping and deployment.
My colleague had already covered Salesforce Inbound and Outbound integration using Oracle Integration Cloud Salesforce Adapter. So, I might not be repeating few steps which already been covered in this blog. if you doing Salesforce Integration first time, then its recommended to review these blogs as well.
So let’s do deep dive now. Below are the high levels flow and steps which needs to be performed to achieve desired result.
- Create custom fields e.g. Degree Name and Passing year into Salesforce existing Contact Object
- Create/Update Salesforce Connection in OIC
- Create REST Adapter in OIC
- Create Integration which maps Contact Object Custom Fields from REST Adapter to Salesforce
- Activate Integration
- Trigger Integration using Postman
- Verify Result In Salesforce
