It’s normal, this is your first integration, you’ve never heard before about this API and you don’t know what do you need to start developing neither what should be the first steps you should follow.
Don’t worry! We’re here to help and guide you through this simple integration path.
First of all, let’s clarify what the Connected Cloud API is: It provides a consistent method for connecting your new apps and developments to a Sage 50cloud, Sage 200cloud or any other Sage connected-cloud application. The key concept for this API is based on the simple principle of sharing files, where each one contains application data conforming to a relevant predefined solution schema.
Start developing for Cloud Connected API doesn’t have any special requirement, although it would be worth to have a Sage application available to make some tests.
You should start obtaining your credentials, so for getting them you must proceed registering as a developer following some simple steps:
Now, you can create passcodes that should be used within the Sage product you want to integrate with. Once entered and granted permissions, you’ll receive the API key required to start uploading (Sage data ingestion) and downloading (Sage data delivery) information to make your integration work.
