Salesforce User Authentication

The StoneShot integration provides both sales and marketing users the full range of StoneShot functionality to create, send and report on email campaigns, but from directly within the Salesforce environment.

It tackles three major issues for clients – how to streamline the process of list management, how to provide Sales with feedback and metrics from marketing activities and how to provide an integrated way of managing event promotion and registration.

In this overview we’ll cover how to authenticate and use the application for the first time.


The first step in using the application is to authenticate as a user. To use the full functionality within Salesforce you will need both a StoneShot and Salesforce login credentials. This authentication only needs to take place the first time you use the application.

1. Go to the App launcher and hit the StoneShot for Salesforce link:

2. Enter your StoneShot login credentials:

3. That gives you access to the Canvas application; to complete the full authentication you need to also authenticate the connected app. To do that click on the cog icon in the top right hand corner of the StoneShot tab in Salesforce.

4. Complete the authentication process by pressing “Connect” on the Connected App Authentication button:

Once complete Salesforce will remember the credentials so you won’t need to do this again.

How do I create a Salesforce user?

We can’t create a Salesforce user, but your CRM team should be able to do that. We can then link your StoneShot account to your Salesforce account if needed.

What happens when a SSO user is disconnected in Salesforce?

The user will no longer be able to login using SSO.
