Salesforce Integration with OpenAI : Revolutionizing Image Generation [2024]

Salesforce Integration with OpenAI (Kizzy Consulting - Top Salesforce Partner)

Hey Guys, today we are discussing DALL-E (which is a product of openAI) and Salesforce Integration (Salesforce Integration with OpenAI). DALL·E is designed to generate coherent and creative images based on textual descriptions. To understand if the whole discussions going on in the social circles were a fad or a real trend, we worked on integrating DALL-E with Salesforce. Join the boat of learning in this article to know more about Salesforce integration with DALL-E.

What is OpenAI?

OpenAI is an AI research lab and company that develops and supports safe and effective AI technologies. Founded in 2015, OpenAI is known for creating advanced language models such as GPT-3 that can generate human-like responses to text. OpenAI’s main goal is to improve artificial intelligence while ensuring fair and responsible use. 

What is DALL·E?

The name “DALL·E” is a combination of the artist Salvador Dalí and the robot character WALL·E from the animated movie “WALL·E.” The model is designed to generate creative and coherent images from textual prompts, demonstrating an understanding of both textual and visual information.

DALL·E’s architecture and capabilities build upon the successes of previous models like GPT-3 and CLIP, enabling it to produce impressive visual outputs based on descriptive text input. It has the potential to be used in various applications, such as content creation, graphic design, and creative storytelling.

Benefits of integrating DALL-E with Salesforce

Integrating DALL·E with Salesforce (Salesforce Integration with OpenAI) can bring several benefits, especially if you want to enhance your Salesforce application with advanced image generation capabilities. Some of them are listed below to lure our developer friends into trying this new functionality out 

  • Language Translation to Images: DALL·E can translate textual descriptions in one language to corresponding images, showcasing its potential applications in cross-lingual contexts.
  • Semantic Understanding: The model can grasp the underlying semantics of the input text and use that understanding to produce semantically relevant images.
  • Image Generation from Text: DALL·E can generate creative and coherent images based on textual descriptions provided as input. Users can input detailed instructions or complex prompts, and the model will attempt to visualize the given text.

# DALL-E Integration in Salesforce (Salesforce Integration with OpenAI):

  1. Set the HTTP method to POST.
  2. Specify the URI as ““.
  3. In the request body (Raw), provide the necessary information in JSON format:
    1. Include the user’s message within the “prompt” array, with the role as “user” and the content as the desired query.
  4. Configure the authorization type as Bearer Token.
  5. Enter the access token (“sk-xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”) provided by OpenAI.
  6. Send the request to the API endpoint.
  7. Retrieve the response, which will contain the generated reply from the OPENAI model.
