All Connectors ⋅ Web Services Web Services Supports: RESTSOAP View Live Demo Web Services Connector Overview Frequently Asked Questions Overview SmartConnect for Web Services Integration with business apps requires interaction with a variety of web services. SmartConnect has been built to work with both SOAP and REST services, being both sources of data and destinations. Web Service APIs provide a powerful structure for software applications to interact and talk to each other. There are two ways to interact with an API, the first is to take a programming course and you should be good in a year or so, or you can use SmartConnect to achieve the same thing in just a few minutes without the need for code or developers. Connect Anything to Anything On-Premise to Cloud. Cloud to Hosted. On-Premise to On-Premise. Cloud to On-Premise. Cloud to Cloud. SmartConnect handles all of these scenarios though the same simple interface. If the application you need to connect to has a web service API then you can use it as a source of data. You can take the data and move integrate it to another web service API, back to an on premise solution or anywhere you need. Clouds Apps Many organizations have been frightened about users finding and using clouds or mobile apps for business purposes, as the data sits in a silo and is not integrated or shared with the rest of the companies systems. SmartConnect opens up all of the benefits of cloud applications to an organization by allowing them to incorporate all of these into a business process workflow and keep control over all the business data. Frequently Asked Questions Can you give me an example of things we can connect? Here at eOne we connect cloud app like Zendesk.com and Timelyapp.com into our Microsoft CRM and ERP using the SmartConnect Web Service Connector. So can I connect to every single web service on the planet? That might be a stretch. There are so many different services all with different authentication and return methods that we are sure we have not handled them all. We are continually expanding our configuration solution to ensure you can work with more and more web services. We release pre-built templates for some services and provide a configuration model to allow you to define the structure of a web service that we have not worked with and integrate with that service. It is very cool and very powerful. I am not a programmer, how hard is building a rest connection? You definitely do not need to be a programmer. You do want to have a good understanding of the app you are connecting to and the data it stores. You are going to have to understand the credentials and codes used to authenticate with that app. So in short you need to be smarter than the average pumpkin but no need to be a developer.
