Salesforce Pardot Authorization

If you haven't already done so, you will need to set up a Salesforce Pardot account before you begin the process described below. Salesforce Pardot supports OAuth2, which allows you to simply enter your username and password to connect Lytics with Pardot.

To make full use of the import and export integrations you will need an account with List, Prospect, Prospect Account, Opportunity, and Visitor view/edit permissions. The built in Administrator and Marketer roles have all of these permissions.

ProspectsFullFullFullOnly assigned prospects
Segmentation: ListsFullFullNoNo
VisitorsFullFullFullOnly assigned Visitors

If you use an account without permissions to some data, the integration will not be able to interact with that data. See Pardot's roles documentation for role details.

The user connecting with Pardot must also have a Pardot user that is synced with a Salesforce user. Your user is synced if it has a CRM username. As shown below, you can verify this under Users in Pardot Settings. Salesforce Pardot synced user

You will also need your Pardot business unit ID. As shown below, this can be located under Pardot Account Setup. Pardot Business Unit ID
