How to: Configure Inbound Registration with Marketo

The Brandlive Platform’s inbound registration integration allows you to host registration for your webinar or event via a CRM like Marketo. Host registration with a Marketo form that will automatically sync to your Brandlive Platform webinar log-in system, enabling seamless access for your attendees without needing registration to originate from Brandlive. 

Important Note

  • All fields have a 50-character limit. if the limit is exceeded this will result in an error
  • We are offering an endpoint to map the registration fields to, from a third party app. In response to you sending the registration data to Brandlive, Brandlive returns a confirmation URL. From there, the customization options are up to your discretion depending on your intended use.
  • Once configured, this integration will successfully dispatch a Brandlive registration confirmation email upon attendee registration through your external form. To customize this, please see our article on customizing registration emails
  • If at any point in your setup you run into issues, please reach out to your Brandlive Account Manager or email us at support@brandlive.com.

Authentication Process
