Integrate oXygen content with Salesforce Knowledge

Post by rjcbop » Thu May 07, 2020 5:59 pm

Does oXygen provide any mechanism for integrating content into Salesforce Knowledge?

Hi,

Unfortunately we do not have any specific Salesforce integration. I added an internal issue to explore this further.
If you have any specifics in mind about how this would work it would help us get a better idea about your expectations.

Regards,

Thanks. We're in the early stages of thinking about this so we don't have specifics yet.

I also am trying to figure out how to integrate Oxygen webhelp output into a Salesforce website. I do not have a solution yet, but I had an email exchange with someone who had done this. Here is a summary of what he told me:

Their solution was to create a local website (not on Salesforce) with all the directories, CSS, HTML and so on. They zipped up this local website. Salesforce has a method of using a zipped resource, and they uploaded the zip to Salesforce. Your Salesforce object can point to the zip file, and Salesforce resources will pull the appropriate files out as needed. You need one front end page that points to the zip. He said he thought that the webhelp full text search, which is controlled by Javascript, would probably work.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Did any of you manage to progress with publishing DITA content to Salesforce? I'm trying to collect requirements to further understand how such an integration should work.

Best regards,
Alex

I was not able to get a simple HTML page of my own to to display under Salesforce Community, let alone a Javascript-based system like Oxygen webhelp. My client said their Salesforce rep said it was not possible. I do not know what the real answer is.

I am now helping the same client integrate the Zoomin dynamic docs delivery system into their Salesforce Community installation. Somehow Zoomin is able to display HTML pages. They are an official Salesforce app. I'm not sure what is involved with this. Even with all this, we can upload an HTML page to Zoomin that uses some Javascript to control the display of columns in the table, and Salesforce will not allow that Javascript to run.

Good luck! Please tell us here what you find out.

Salesforce integration is a must for us as well. I've read the API docs and felt that this should be doable as an Ant target.

If you are investigating this, Oxygen team, please add my vote. I need this as a DITA transformation target endpoint in a few months. If you don't have a Salesforce environment for testing, maybe we can work together.

Best regards

We encountered the same thing - Salesforce itself does not seem to be able to serve OLH-like content.

We are hosting our OLH content in AWS. We use Salesforce-Coveo to index the AWS content so it's searchable from the Salesforce customer portal.
