How to assign the OnceHub permission set to the Salesforce API user

The Salesforce setup process includes 5 phases: API connection, Installation, Field validation, Field mapping, and Creation rules

In this article, you'll learn how to assign the OnceHub Permission Set to the API User in Salesforce.

Permission sets

Permission Sets in Salesforce define what functions and features your Users have access to in Salesforce. To use the OnceHub connector for Salesforce, you must assign the appropriate Permission Set to your API User.

The OnceHub Permission Set assigns permissions to work with Lead, Contact, Case, Account, and Activity records. This will allow the OnceHub connector to create and update records through the API User.


To assign the OnceHub permission set, you will need:

Assigning the OnceHub permission Set

  1. Sign in to Salesforce as your API User.
  2. Go to the Setup page.
