ApproveSimple Connectors manage the synchronization and updating of open approval requests between enterprise source applications and the Capriza Cloud Service. Connectors pull approval requests from the source application to the ApproveSimple cloud service and update the source application data with approval requests that were available to AS mobile app users for viewing and updating (approving/rejecting). When an action is taken on an approval request, the connector checks that the approval request is identical to that on the source system, and if it is not, the outdated approval request is not updated on the source system and the updated approval request is presented to the ApproveSimple mobile app user.
The Connector SDK presents the tools, instructions, information and methods needed by developers for developing connectors. Connectors are the components that enable the workflow between a source application and the Capriza Cloud Service. It contains documents, code samples and descriptions of tools to help you develop, configure, test and preview a connector and its efficacy for Capriza ApproveSimple work with the source application for which it is developed.
To develop a connector you need to follow a certain sequence of activities described in
Connector Creation Steps General :
These steps include:
- Initiating the connector skeleton is accomplished by a command that installs the Connector SDK.
- Following the steps the Connector Creation Steps in this guide which include:
* Populating the functions of your business logic code according to the requirements of your source application. * Testing the connector using ApproveSimple Inspector * Deploying the connector * Testing the connector in the production environment with test data.
