Salesforce Marketing Cloud Setup Guide link
Updated November 16, 2023
Follow our setup guide to connect Salesforce Marketing Cloud to Fivetran.
To connect Salesforce Marketing Cloud to Fivetran, you need a Salesforce Marketing Cloud account.
IMPORTANT: The Salesforce API only returns data for a single business unit account. You must create separate connectors for each business unit if you have multiple business units. When you create and configure the installed package, you must log in to the business unit you want to use. We can only sync data for the parent account and the logged-in business unit. You can check whether your current user is assigned a business unit by following the instructions in Salesforce's Manage Business Units documentation.
