Salesforce Classic Console Integration


When your customers start a new conversation, the Quiq system can create a new Salesforce Case, Lead or Task for the conversation, depending on your company's business needs. You may create a System Administrator account for your Quiq Implementation specialist to complete this setup on your behalf, or you can proceed with these steps on your own.

The instructions below are specific to the Classic interface. If your Salesforce org is enabled and set up to use the Lightning Experience, please see Salesforce Integration (Lightning Console).

Quiq is happy to make a test site available to match with a Salesforce Sandbox site. Whether your Salesforce admin or Quiq accomplishes the configuration, your admin should be available and work with Quiq through the process.

Set Up Steps



YOUR_QUIQ_TENANT is a placeholder for the name of your tenant in the Quiq system. It is often your organization name and is the first part of the URL to your Quiq site. Confirm this with Quiq support before you continue. YOUR_SALESFORCE_SITE is the full name of your Salesforce site, typically ending in
Quiq connects to Salesforce via a Connected App.

1. Integration Account

Salesforce requires API calls to go through a Connected App as well as through a user account. You will need to create a user account in your Salesforce org(s) for the Quiq Integration user. In order to prevent disruption in your integration service, it is advised that you set the integration user with the "password never expires" system permission.

1.In Salesforce, navigate to Setup > Administer > Manage Users > Profiles

2. Create a new profile by cloning from the "System Administrator" profile*

3. Name this profile “Quiq Integration” and save

4. In the new profile navigate to System Permissions

5. Click Edit and update the "Password Never Expires" to true and save

6. Navigate to Manage Users > Users > New User

7. Create a new user with the “Quiq Integration” profile. For email/username use “[email protected]”.

8. Your Quiq implementation specialist will receive your new user email and will continue to proceed with the integration setup



  • If you prefer not to create a new profile or clone the system administrator profile you may set up the Integration user with an existing profile (Salesforce license) and instead create a new permission set specific for Quiq.

  • Quiq will need access to Accounts, Contacts, and Leads for phone number and email matching as well as to any objects and records (e.g., Cases and Tasks) that you desire to have Quiq create and update.

  • Depending on your Salesforce security and permission settings using this method may require you to update record sharing rules as well. Work with your Implementation Specialist to ensure all the proper access has been granted.

1. In Salesforce, navigate to Setup > Build > Create > Apps > Connected Apps

2. Click "New"

3. Under Connected App Name type "Quiq Backend Integration"
