CRM :: HOWTO CRM Integration Zoho

NOTE: V1 API reached End-of-Life(EOL) on 31 December, 2019.

A Zoho admin should create API Client (Register application). To register the application, the admin should do the following:

  1. Go to the site: accounts.zoho.com/developerconsole
  2. Click 'Add Client ID'
  3. Enter the 'Client Name', 'Domain' and 'Redirect URL'
  4. Click 'Create'
  5. Note down the 'Client ID'

'Redirect URL' should be as follows: https://{PBX_IP_ADDRESS_OR_HOSTNAME}/{TENANT_NUMBER}/crmiservice/api/generate_tokens

NOTE: Please note that the format of 'Page URL' may look different depending on the Data Center to which a certain Zoho instance belongs to. Users can check it from the URL on the homepage after logging in into their Zoho CRM account.

Generate Tokens

When setting the configuration in PBXware GUI for the first time, users have to click the “Generate Tokens” button.
This action will generate a Refresh Token which will later be used to generate Access tokens for users.

Additionally, the 'Save to enable' button will appear which indicates that a user has to populate all fields on the page and 'Save' settings.


After populating all fields and saving the settings, the 'Test' button will appear.


Upon clicking the button, users will be prompted to a different pop-up window where they can enter the CRM account information in order to test the configuration.

  • Username:
Provide the CRM account's username.
  • Password:
Provide the CRM account's password.
  • Caller ID:
Caller ID to search for a customer (optional).
  • Log Call:
Setting 'Log call' to 'Yes' will create a log inside CRM.
(E.g. Yes/No)
(Options button)

After providing all the necessary information, press 'Run' and the CRM Integration test will be started.

The default log options are:

  • Log inbound calls
