Register Your Organization

The first time time a user clicks the 8x8 Analytics tab within Salesforce, they see a prompt asking for their Salesforce credentials.

Note: We recommend registering while in Salesforce Classic Mode, rather than in Lightning Mode. You can click your profile icon to open a drop-down menu, and select to switch to the Classic experience for the installation.

If you still see the Salesforce ID error from before you configured the ID, try refreshing your Salesforce page.

This is a one-time configuration for your organization.

  1. Enter your Salesforce username and password (not your 8x8 credentials), and Security Token Code, and click Register.
  2. If you do not know your Security Token Code:
    1. In Salesforce, click your name in the upper-right corner of the page to open your user menu, and go to My Settings.
    2. Click Personal, and select Reset My Security Token from the menu.
    3. Check the email associated with your Salesforce account for a message titled Your new Salesforce security token.
    4. Select and copy the string of random characters at the end of the line marked Security token (case-sensitive).
    5. Enter your Salesforce username and password, paste in your new Security Token, and click Register.

  3. When the download is complete, refresh the whole page.

  4. Click Set Field-Level Security.
  5. Select the Visible check box for the profile of the user whose credentials are used for the registration process. You can make the field visible for other user profiles as well.
