Why Integrate Telegram Bot With Salesforce?

Telegram is an app that developers love for its easy-to-use API with minimal configurations. Integrating the Telegram bot with Salesforce with just a click is possible. 

Clients want to connect the Telegram bot to the Salesforce org to receive updates on Telegram from Salesforce, send messages, connect with their clients, and provide them support on Telegram. 

So we need to connect the Telegram bot with Salesforce to engage customers. We also need to provide a UI environment for the client to communicate with Telegram users.

Now, we have come to the process of connecting the Telegram Bot with Salesforce.

Process To Connect Telegram Bot With Salesforce

Step 1: –

  • We need to set up a telegram bot first, which is the front face of our business to the customer.
  • Create a bot using /newbot command. You will instantly get the Bot URL and API key needed for authentication.
  • You need to provide a bot name when you are creating a new bot with the /newbot command. Then BotFather will ask you the username of your bot, which must end with a bot keyword, just like: .bot, _bot, bot, etc.

Step 2: –

  • Now we set up Salesforce to connect with the customers through a bot.

Step 3: –

  • Now let’s create an Apex web service called when a customer navigates to the bot and selects ‘/start’ command; then we get a new message event on the bot with that Chat ID. 
  • To do this, we need to capture this Chat ID in the Salesforce contact for further communication with that chat.
  • We need to create a contact with that Chat ID in the user when a user navigates to the telegram bot and selects the/start command.
  • This Webhook service will now update the contact if found in the Salesforce with the User telegram ID or create a new contact with the Chat ID.
  • We need to create a new field on Contact with the name (Telegram_User_ID) to store the Chat ID on the Contact.
  • Please create a remote site setting in the org and add URL in that remote site setting. Please see the below image for reference:-

Step 4: –

Output: – Now, let’s test how it works. We type, and the ‘/start’ command and response will come from Salesforce automatically, and a new contact record will be created if it doesn’t exist with the telegram username. You can receive further updates from Salesforce after performing the action according to your requirements.


In today’s business world, customers prefer to use their favorite channels like Email, phone, or messaging applications. 

Telegram is one such messaging application and has a Bot API to encourage developers to build their bots in Telegram. 

The steps for building the chatbot in Telegram are simple and consist of only a few steps, saving the developer valuable time.
