How to create a Visualforce button to call Conga Composer

NOTE: Due to their complicated nature the integration of Conga with JavaScript, Visualforce and Apex (or other programming languages) is not supported.

To create a Visualforce command button to call Conga Composer, you’ll need to access the current Session ID and Partner Server URL endpoint. We’ve seen at least two techniques to accomplish this.

Technique #1

Alternatively, if you absolutely must access Salesforce Reports, you would need a SessionId and ServerUrl from a "front-end" server, and then pass those values into the Visualforce page. This is easy to do if you happen to be calling your Visualforce page from a button since you can pass the SessionId and ServerUrl as querystring parameters, like this:

/apex/MyPage

?SessionId={!$Api.Session_ID}

&ServerUrl={!$Api.Partner_Server_URL_130}

Technique #2

Another technique to create a simple Conga Composer button on a Visualforce page would be as follows. We particularly like this technique because you can create a normal Conga Composer button on an object, and simply “point” to the standard button on the Visualforce page.

<apex:commandButton value="Create PDF Quote"

action="{!URLFOR($Action.Opportunity.View,Opportunity.Id)}"

onclick="openConga()"/>

<Script Language="JavaScript">

function openConga() { window.open('{!URLFOR($Action.Opportunity.Do_The_Conga,Opportunity.Id)}', '','scrollbars=yes,menubar=no,height=600,width=800,resizable=yes, toolbar=no,location=no,status=yes'); }

</Script>

NOTE: Do_The_Conga is referring to the API name of the standard button which you are trying to click via the Visualforce button.
