How to Integrate Multiple Salesforce Organization in One account

Salesforce, a CRM solution company was founded in 1999. The company was publicly available in 2004 with CRM-based products and services. It is a platform that not only provides software solutions but also offers instances on a cloud platform to deploy applications.

Salesforce solutions are designed to fulfil the needs of businesses such as analytics, automation, community management, digital commerce etc. Its cloud solutions as well as customization platform for different entities are setting it apart from other CRM solutions in the market.

Salesforce Instance vs Salesforce Organization

Before we get into the steps of integration, let us understand some basic terminology that describes Salesforce Architecture.

As we mentioned above, Salesforce provides a cloud platform for deploying the CRM applications of the companies. A Salesforce instance is referred to as a physical server, it’s location and the space to host the applications for a company. From the instance name, one can make out in which datacenter the server is located. 

Whereas, a Salesforce Org  is referred to as an instance specific to the company identity and configurations. For example, in the Salesforce instance, company XYZ has deployed its apps with its metadata and configurations is called Salesforce org. If the company XYZ has 2 orgs, the URL of each will be something like this:

Org 1Org 2

Here is an illustration of the Salesforce instance and Salesforce orgs.


Salesforce organizations belonging to an instance point to the same database. In the above illustration, SA1 and SA2 instances are used as production environments whereas the instance on the right is either DEV or QA environment. 

There are multiple ways by which you can integrate orgs to one account. 

Way 1 – You can integrate data of Org1 to Org2

The orgs are nothing but salesforce instances designated by you. Orgs have multiple objects and their respective fields. You can customize them using your organisation URL.

Below are the instructions on how to integrate 2 orgs in one account. (here, we will make both orgs to access the same data by establishing the connection.)

  1. Access Org 1. (This is the org from which the data will be accessed in the destination org.)
