Creating an InsideviewId Custom Field

If you are setting up InsideView Target for Oracle's Eloqua integration, it is mandatory for you to create an InsideviewId custom field in your Eloqua application with string datatype. You must map this field with  any string datatype field in InsideView Target to sync leads into your Eloqua application.

8 Save  Once configured, the Eloqua logo gets updated with a green Configured badge, and Field Mapping becomes available to set up.
9 Check custom field mapping

Custom Field Mapping is mostly automated. You can review the custom field mapping to see how InsideView Target matches InsideView fields to standard fields in Eloqua.

For example, Phone Number automatically picks up the Eloqua field phone. If you wish to edit the default mappings, select the pencil icon, which appears when you hover a field name.

Note:If InsideviewId and Email fields are not mapped you must create these custom field with the string datatype in your Eloqua application and map them in InsideView Target. Otherwise, you cannot perform a Sync to Eloqua.

10 Map Insideview Id Use the Field Management from the left hand navigation pane to map the InsideviewId field to a new custom field.
11 Refresh Eloqua Refresh the InsideView Target instance in order to see this field in the drop-down list as illustrated below:

12 Save changes Click Save to make sure all changes are saved.

Verifying a Successful Set Up 

After your authentication credentials are configured and field mapping is complete, the last step is to verify that a list can be successfully exported. 

Because InsideView Target is a credit-based system, and you do not want junk data in the system, it is best to create a list size of 1 for testing purposes.

De-duplication depends on email in order to be effective, and since most marketers want leads with email address, add the Contact Info field from in + Add Search Criteria options and select email.
