Zendesk Support

Salto’s Zendesk Support adapter allows you to:

  • Fetch and deploy common Zendesk Support configuration data, e.g., triggers, automations, ticket fields.
  • Deploy major configuration changes from a Zendesk Sandbox to your production environment.
  • Compare environments.
  • Audit / document configuration changes such as SLA policy modifications.
  • Monitor specific configuration data changes of interest.

Authentication Instructions

In order to connect Zendesk to Salto you can either:

  • Connect via OAuth:
    • Enter the subdomain of the instance and click 'Authenticate'
    • If you are not logged into your Zendesk account you will be redirected to the Zendesk login page to authenticate.
    • Click 'allow'
  • Connect with username and password:
    • Enter your user name, password and subdomain

:information-source: subdomain refers to the prefix of your Zendesk instance URL. e.g., if your Zendesk URL is acme.zendesk.com, then your subdomain is acme.
