A. Set up a BarTender connection
Start establishing a connection to BarTender 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 BarTender.
The Create connection pane opens with required and advanced settings.
B. Edit BarTender application details
At this point, you’re presented with a series of options for providing BarTender 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.
Agent (required): 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.
Print portal Base URL (required): After you log in, the browser's URL field displays the base URL. For example, if your print portal is located at http://localhost/BarTender/api, enter http://localhost.
Username (required): Enter the username for your BarTender print portal account.
Password (required): Enter the password for your BarTender print portal. Multiple layers of protection are in place, including AES 256 encryption, to keep your connection’s password safe. When editing this form later, you must enter this value again; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
Generate token (required): Click the Generate token button to have integrator.io fill in an encrypted access token or enter the token generated for you by BarTender. Multiple layers of protection are in place, including AES 256 encryption, to keep your connection’s token safe. When editing this form later, you must generate this value again; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
C. Edit advanced BarTender settings
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the BarTender connection.
D. Test the connection
Once you have configured the BarTender 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.
