Who can activate integrations?

If you have your own site this can be done by your system administrator or a user with the System Settings capability.

Managed Services Customers on multi-tenanted sites should contact their Account Manager 

 

All Xplan sites upgraded to the December 2019 major release (19.12.98) will have the System Settings page described below enabled.

 

Important note: site administrators should check that their business processes and procedures allow them to enable integrations on behalf of their firm.

 

How is activation done?

1. Click on the cog icon to the left of your screen. Click on the Site menu option and then System Settings.

6. The capabilities that users of the integration are likely to need are also listed to the right of the screen for information.

 

7. When you click on the Activate button Iress’ terms and conditions will appear. Click on Agree to proceed. Click on Close to cancel.

Important note:  If, as a site administrator, you do not have the authority to agree to the terms and conditions on behalf of your firm then you should seek authorisation from within your own business structure before proceeding. 

 

8. To return to the integration tiles screen click on Iress Open at the top of the screen.

 

What is happening in the background?

When you activate an integration a link is created between the integrator’s software and your Xplan instance using Application Programming Interface (API). This allows data to be exported from Xplan into the integrator’s software to avoid the need for dual keying and reduce human error.

 

How do I deactivate an integration?

1. Click on the tile for the activated integration and click on the Deactivate button.

2. The button will now read Activate. Click on the Iress Open heading to return. The green tick will now be removed.

 

How do users access the integration?

1. You will access the integration via the provider’s (integrator) software. Contact details can be found in the integration tile (please see point 5 above). 

 

2. You will also need to ensure that users have the capabilities listed against the integration tile. Please see point 7 above.

 

How can I discover what an integrator’s software does?

There is a link to each integrator’s website in the integration tiles. Please see point 5 above. 

 

Recommend that before enabling the integration links between your Xplan site and a Third Party you ensure that you are confident that the integration solution satisfies your business needs.  Although Iress are facilitating a two way integration with a variety of capabilities and data points it does not necessarily mean that the Third Party software is facilitating exactly the same.

 

Why can't I see the integration I am looking for?

An integration will only be visible on the system setting screen if it is; (1)  A standard integration as opposed to a bespoke or custom version, (2) It has been published via an internal Iress process which requires that certain conditions are met including provision of data from the Integrator.  Available integrations, their type and status are listed in the Community.
