The Rocketlane Salesforce integration allows you to automatically create projects and sync data seamlessly between Salesforce and Rocketlane. 

The integration helps with streamlining your sales to onboarding handoff. It improves communication and visibility between your sales and onboarding teams by keeping all necessary information such as sales notes, project status, estimated completion date in sync.


  • Any objects (including custom objects) can be selected to auto-create projects and for field-sync.

  • Field-sync for the selected object and any objects linked via look-up relationships can be used to map to fields in Rocketlane.

Points to note

  • The integration can be tested via Sandbox before connecting to Production. 

  • The integration creates AppEx classes for the triggers and data sync.

Important points to note

Custom profile permissions required for an 'Integration User' profile*:

  • System Permissions: Manage Custom Permissions, Customize Application, API enabled, Modify Metadata Through Metadata API Functions, View Setup and Configuration, View Roles and Role Hierarchy, Author Apex

  • Apex Class access: Needs access to anything starting with 'RL' or 'TestRL' [Note that Apex classes get added with every additional field sync - Should automatically get added to the custom profile]

  • Object Settings (and field access): Access levels are required depending on how you have decided to set things up in your Salesforce environment.

*Optional: If the 'System Admin' profile isn't being used. 


Field mapping

Every time a new field is added, a few new pieces of code get added into SFDC by the integration user. Check Deployment Status under SFDC setup to ensure components have been successfully installed before testing (few seconds to a few minutes); otherwise, field sync tests will fail and so will automation.
