Salesforce Marketing Cloud

Last updated on Feb 27, 2024

Salesforce Marketing Cloud is a marketing automation platform that enables you to create and manage marketing relationships.

SFMC uses the concept of tenants and subdomains to host the data for your projects.

  • Tenant: Depending on the tenant type, a tenant can represent the top-level enterprise account, core account, top-level agency account, or your client account.

  • Subdomain: A subdomain is created within your main domain based on the tenant type. This subdomain is then added to the Application Programming Interface (API) which creates the tenant-specific endpoints. Hevo uses these endpoints to query the data.

To enable Hevo to access data from your Salesforce Marketing Cloud environment, you need to provide the Client ID and the Client Secret to Hevo.


Source Consideration

  • The earliest date from which the data is fetched is 1st Jan, 2013.

  • By default, all available historical data is synchronized.
