Lately we've been integrating very tightly with Marketing Cloud, so I thought about trying to set up the External Services which Salesforce provides in order to do some minor actions via flows.

In order to be able to setup the External Services feature I first needed to setup a Named Credential and for that, an Auth. Provider.

The issue I came up with was setting up Marketing Cloud as an Auth. Provider. When authenticating against MC, it returns a non-standard JSON which instead of containing a access_token, it contains an accessToken.


  "accessToken": "************************",
  "expiresIn": 3600
  "refreshToken": "************************"

This makes setting up the flows slightly more complicated.

So, given this scenario, is it possible to set up Marketing Cloud as an Auth. Provider in Sales Cloud? In that case, what's the recommended way?
