Note: The name “SmartConnector” has changed to the “Integration App” as they are built on our Integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), integrator.io.
This section provides brief graphical information about the capabilities and options presented by the Integration App. The following 'settings' and 'dashboard' sections are covered to get you started.
- Access data flows
- Turn on/Turn off data flows
- Schedule data flows
- Run data flows
- View flow status in dashboard
- Resolve errors
- Customize data flows
- Modify integration field mappings
- Manage integration connections
- Share and monitor Integration App
- Set up notifications
Access data flows
The home page displays the integrations and integration apps as tiles. To access data flows, go to the integration app settings as shown. Hover over the tile to see the options.
Turn on/Turn off data flows
Go to the data flow group, select the individual data flow and turn on / turn off the data flow. Grey color switch indicates the flow is turned off. The green color switch indicates the flow is turned on.
The following two sections, Data Flow Settings, and Data Flow Dashboard are the two main interfaces for running the flows, viewing flow statuses and resolving errors, if any.
Data Flow Settings
Each data flow group contains one or more data flows. Some flows are real-time, as whenever a new record is created or updated in the source system (Amazon), the same record is automatically updated in the target system (NetSuite). The flows can also be rescheduled to your required frequency. A switch is provided to turn on or turn off the data flow. Field mappings between the systems can be modified or new field mappings can be added. Advanced Settings enable you to tweak the data flow (filters are provided) before you decide to run the flow.
Data Flow Dashboard
When you run a data flow from the 'settings' section, the dashboard page is displayed and provides the status of the data flow. The integration progresses through the following stages: in queue, in progress, and completed.
You can filter integration jobs based on options such as date ranges, flows with errors or based on other statuses, etc. You can hide empty jobs. The number of records exported are indicated. Failed flows or flows with errors are categorized by color code. Errors can be resolved from within the dashboard.
- Filters to view and organize your data flows
- Data flow description and associated components (import and export status)
- Take action on your data flows ( re-run the flows without going back to the Settings section)
- Settings section
- View errors (hover over the error) and resolve from within the dashboard
Errors are indicated by color codes. Fully red indicates all errors, partial red-partial green indicates that some records were successfully imported and some were not; fully green indicates that all records were successfully imported etc. You can 'view' the errors and resolve them from within the dashboard. For detailed information, refer topic on error handling.
Modify data flow field mappings
The data flow comes with pre-built field mappings, but you can add/remove/modify the field mappings. For detailed information, refer topic Field Mapping Options in Integrator.io.
Manage integration connections
You can access, update and share your connections and credentials with your team members with integrator accounts. For detailed information, refer section manage and share connections in Integrator.io.
You can share your connections with your team members and monitor your integrations. A notification is sent to the recipient and the recipient has the option to accept or reject the request. You can also delete the integration from this section. To remove the integrations, first all connections must be removed (deleted). Refer topic manage and share connections in Integrator.io.
You can set up the Integration App to send and receive notifications, whenever the integration encounters any errors or when a connection goes offline. Refer topic email notifications in Integrator.io.
