Connex allows third parties to build a custom store integration. Our site will ping a page on your website.
How do users authenticate to my application?
At our my connections page, chosoe custom store. You will see a form with a user name, password, and URL fields. The user name and password will be sent to your website using basic authentication. Our tool will try to access /authenticatetowebservice. During our pairing process, you are asked for the URL of your API. It could be https://www.mysite.com/api/v1. If it was successful, return OK. Otherwise, return an error message. It could say user name and password is incorrect.
How should I build my API?
Here is a spec. The spec lists the parameters and how our fields map.
Does the sync run automatically?
After the sync has completed, Connex updates the sync timers to an hour ago and tomorrow. The timers use UTC format. The timers are located under the transaction tab of our configure page. If you want recent orders, then let Connex run hourly.
How should the data appear?
Our software created an intermediary called JMAUser, which is translated into QuickBooks XML. Here is how our data appears.
What URL does your site use to sync orders?
Our tool is looking for an endpoint called orders. If your API is located at https://www.mysite.com/api/v1, our site would check https://www.mysite.com/api/v1/orders. Our site uses GET to add parameters.
How do I sync updates to orders?

- ReferenceNumber (can be the order number, usually comes from the payment processor)
Populate the JMAOrder object order number field only. An order can include multiple payments. One payment could be for $100 paid by cash. Another payment could be $50 by credit card.\
