Magento Connector Tool Overview
The Magento Integration tool allows communication between BPA Platform and Magento. All communication uses XML. You use the tool to map BPA Platform data to Magento objects and operations. Operations such as, ADD, UPDATE, GET, and DELETE, are supported for a variety of business objects, such as, Product, Customer and Order.
Magento Connector Tool
The Magento Connector Tool is a proven and cost effective solution that enables you to create standard and complex integrations with the powerful eCommerce solution, Magento and Magento 2.
The Magento integration tool is a dedicated connector that allows bidirectional transfer between Magento and your business systems. It exposes Modules and objects in Magento, allowing you to easily map data from your web shop to other business systems using drag and drop tool.
For example, as part a BPA Platform integration solution you can automate orders, synchronise stock levels and products between your web store and ERP system reducing costs and improving order fulfilment times by integrating Magento with your courier service.
The tool has two elements. The global configuration and the integration tool.
Slide Title: Magento Global Connection Tool
The Magento global Connection tool allows you to connect to your webstore using your domain and REST API. In the Authentication tab you can specify the Consumer Key, Consumer Secret, Access Token and
Access Token Secret created in Magento. Here you can test your connection credentials.
The options Tab allows you to select the Module you wish to connect to, ranging from Catalog, Customer, Directory and Sales. Each module exposes related objects, which we will look at shortly.
The multiselect pane is a free type field that allows you to assign Magento specific attributes to objects.
Individual instances of the tool allow you connect to different Magento webstores and modules.
Slide Title: Magento Integration Tool
On the Magento Integration Tool General Tab, you can outline the Name and a brief description. The data source allows you to use variables in place of the XML objects fields and refer the source from another step in your process.
The connection tab relates the Tool instance to the Global Connection we defined earlier.
The mapping tool allows you to map data from Magento to your business system. You can choose the Object, and its related Operation’s shown here.
The Magento connector tool forms part of your automated business process that can include error handling for every call made to the Magento service. This allows resilience and failover processes to be created as part of the integration solution.
