Salesforce Integration

If you are already using Salesforce, Chisel’s salesforce integration is the tool that will help you to import feedback and ideas into Chisel efficiently. 

This article will guide you through the steps of connecting Chisel to your Salesforce account. We will also look at how you can authorize Salesforce integration in simple steps. 


To get started, you will need the following:

Note: A Chisel account with contributor access can’t proceed with any integration process. Learn more about the Chisel user roles. 

Pro Tip: For now, at a time, only one Chisel workspace can be integrated with one salesforce account

Create New Salesforce Integration in Chisel

  • Click on ‘Integrations’ under the ‘workspace‘ pillar on the left navigation bar.
  • Once you click on ‘Integrations,’ you will see a screen that shows you all the integrations you have set up(active integrations) and other integrations you can set up.
  • Scroll down and click on the ‘connect’ button next to the salesforce icon.

We’ll look at how you can create and configure a new connected app in salesforce. 

Pro Tip: Before starting with salesforce integration, please check if you have an enterprise account (because it is a must-have to go ahead with the integration). 

  • In a separate tab, create an enterprise account on Salesforce. Now click on the ‘Setup’ menu icon in the top right corner. 

  • Once you do that, you will be brought to the salesforce setup page.

  • In the ‘Quick find’ bar on the left side of the page, search for ‘App Manager.’
  • From the two options on the page’s right side, click on the ‘New Connected App’ button.
  • Now fill in the basic information such as ‘Connected App Name,’ ‘API Name,’ and ‘Contact Email,’
  • Tick the box next to the Enable OAuth Settings in the ‘API (Enable OAuth Settings)’ section.
  • In the Callback URL box, paste the following link:

  • Next, add the following two OAuth Scopes: Manage user data via APIs (api), Perform requests at any time (refresh_token, offline_access)
  • Scroll to the end and click on the ‘Save’ button. 
  • Wait for about 10 minutes for salesforce to set up the changes. 
  • Once salesforce has set up your account, you will get two important links: Consumer key and Consumer secret.

Authorizing Salesforce Integration in Chisel to Import Opportunities

In the Chisel workspace, check if you have the ‘maker’ rights to begin the integration.

  • Copy the ‘Consumer Key’ by clicking on the ‘copy’ button from the connected app view in salesforce under the section API( Enable OAuth Settings).
  • Paste it in Chisel’s salesforce integration tab.
  • Similarly, click on ‘Click to reveal’ and get your ‘Consumer Secret’ URL.
  • Paste it in the chisel’s tab.
  • Click on the ‘Authorize’ button.

Congratulations, you’ve authorized your salesforce integration! Now, only a few steps away from importing opportunities.

  • To import opportunities in Chisel’s workspace, first put down the date in the box next to ‘Date Onwards.’

Pro tip: Ensure that you haven’t already imported the opportunities. 

  • The number of opportunities will be displayed once you enter the date, confirm it, and click on the ‘Import Opportunities’ button.
