    Social Field Mappings

Profiler will build the links to the social network site using the mapped contact field. To link to social network sites, choose the contact field that should be used for each social network.


    1. View and search installed Profiler apps.

    App Access

    1. Select the security groups which should have access to the Profiler app.

      Note: Users must log out of Eloqua for Eloqua security group changes to take effect.

    Allowed Domains

    1. Identify which domains are allowed to host Sales Tools pages. For example, if you embed Sales Tools in an iframe hosted by your CRM, add the domain of the page hosting the iframe to your allowlist. You can allow a domain and its sub-domains using a wildcard (*).

      To avoid broken iframes, add your CRMs to the Profiler allowlist and Engage allowlist , and update the Sales Tools URLs you have embedded in an iframe to the new URLs. Here is a list of suggested domains for the allowlist based on CRMs:

      • Salesforce: *, *, *, *, and *
      • Oracle CX Sales: *
      • Oracle CRM On Demand: *
      • Microsoft Dynamics: *

      To learn more about embedding Profiler in different CRMs, see Profiler integration.
