HappyFox - Salesforce integration allows agents to view the following information inside the Ticket Details page and the New Ticket Creation form:

  • Standard Salesforce objects such as Accounts, Opportunities, Contacts, and Leads.

  • Other Salesforce objects including out of the box and custom objects that you choose.

You can further customize the visibility of individual fields present inside each of the above objects. Creating Salesforce case records upon creating HappyFox tickets is also supported.


Please ensure that API access is enabled for your Salesforce Account. Check out Salesforce editions with API access here.


How Salesforce integration works:

  1. The Salesforce app compares the HappyFox ticket contact's email address with the corresponding Lead(s)/contact(s) inside your Salesforce account, and if there is an exact match, fetches the contact(s)/lead(s) details from Salesforce.

  2. Direct Account for the Contacts from step 1 is fetched from Salesforce.

  3. Opportunity(ies) that are linked to the account(s) from step 2 are fetched from Salesforce.

  4. If there is a matching contact in HappyFox and Salesforce, ticket updates from HappyFox are pushed into Salesforce as new cases listed against the contact - This is only for ticket updates that are recorded after the below toggle is turned ON from the Salesforce app page in HappyFox.



While configuring the app, if you have selected any additional objects, they will also be shown. They are fetched from Salesforce if they have a lookup association to:

  • exactly a single contact (Priority).
  • or a single account.

If multiple contacts are associated, the app proceeds to look for a single account association and vice-versa. If Multiple Contact AND Account association are present, results for those additional objects are not fetched.

  1. Once configured, you can modify the visibility of each of these objects inside HappyFox. Results for these objects are shown in the ticket-detail page and in new-ticket form.

Available on Fantastic and above pricing plans. 

Note: While configuring the app in Salesforce, please ensure to disable Require Proof Key for Code Exchange (PKCE) Extension for Supported Authorization Flows as shown in the screenshot below.
