Connecting to Oracle Eloqua

In this topic you will learn how to configure Brightcove Campaign™ for use with Oracle Eloqua.

Brightcove Campaign can be configured to integrate with Oracle Eloqua. When the integration is configured, video engagement data for videos published using Brightcove Campaign is synchronized to Eloqua. Once in Eloqua, this data can be used for segmentation, campaign logic, reports, lead scoring, and personalizing communications.


To use Brightcove Campaign with Oracle Eloqua, you must:

  • Have Oracle Eloqua 10 and credentials to login at:
  • The credential being used to login to Eloqua should be added to the Advanced Users - Marketing group and have the following permissions:
    • Consume API
    • Install Cloud Applications
    • Set-up Marketing Campaigns


Some of the key features of the Brightcove Campaign - Oracle Eloqua integration are:

  • Data format - Video viewing data is delivered to a custom data object (CDO) in Oracle Eloqua. The data that is replicated to Eloqua is as follows:
    • Video Name
    • Video ID
    • Brightcove Account ID
    • Page URL of the referring page
    • Brightcove Player ID
    • % Watched
  • Data retention - Data collected can optionally be retained in Video Cloud for up to 1 month
  • Data transfer - Viewing data that is more than 15 minutes old is sent from Brightcove Campaign to Eloqua four times per hour. Note that this means that viewing data can take up to 30 minutes to appear in Eloqua.
