Intro

Eloqua Corp. is a marketing automation SaaS company which develops automated marketing and demand generation software and services for business-to-business marketers. Use Domo's Eloqua Writeback connector to push your Domo data into an Eloqua custom object. To learn more about the Eloqua API, visit their page (https://community.oracle.com/community/topliners/code-it).

You export data to Eloqua in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the Eloqua Writeback connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.
