Start establishing a connection to PrestaShop in either of the following ways:
- From the Resources menu, select Connections. Then, click + Create connection at the top right.
– or –
- While working in a new or existing integration, you can add an application to a flow simply by clicking Add source or Add destination/lookup.
In the resulting Application list, select PrestaShop.
The Create connection pane opens with required and advanced settings.
At this point, you’re presented with a series of options for providing PrestaShop authentication.
Name (required): Provide a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection, and a unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting among a list of connections that you’ve created.
Application (required, non-editable): A reminder of the app you’re editing.
Mode (required): Select one of the following options:
- Cloud to connect to a publicly accessible server application
- On-premise to connect to a server that is publicly inaccessible and has integrator.io agent installed on it
Agent (required, if On-premise selected for Mode; otherwise not displayed): Select an agent from the list. To connect to an on-premise application, integrator.io requires that an agent be installed on a networked computer. An agent is a small application that allows you to connect to data behind your firewall. When installing an agent, you will specify a unique access token, which then populates the Agent drop-down list. The installed agents connect to integrator.io and establish a reverse SSH tunnel, allowing secure communication without the need to whitelist integrator.io IP addresses in your firewall settings. A single agent can be used by multiple different connections.
Store URL (required): Enter the URL where you sign in to your PrestaShop back office (local or cloud), without the (http://) protocol.
API key (required): Paste in the API key from your PrestaShop account. Multiple layers of protection are in place, including AES 256 encryption, to keep this value safe. When editing this form later, you must enter this value again; it is stored only for a saved connection.
- Sign in to your PrestaShop store’s back office.
- From the menu at the left, select Configure > Advanced parameters > Webservice.
- In the resulting Webservice page, scroll down to Configuration, set Enable PrestaShop’s webservice to Yes, and click Save.
- At the top right of this page, click Add new webservice key.
- In the new Webservice account section, review the Permissions, and select the scopes that you would like to grant to your webservice connection.
- Click to Generate a key, and copy the token for your API key.
- Click Save.
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the PrestaShop connection.
Once you have configured the PrestaShop connection, you have a few options for continuing:
- Save – click this button to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account
- Save & close – click to test and save the connection and exit the Create connection pane
- Cancel – click to exit without saving any new changes
- Test connection – click this button to verify that your new connection is free of errors
When you test or save the connection, it is verified before continuing.
The new connection is now successfully added to your account. It will be applied to the current source or destination app, if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
