Connection Settings

Set the Connection

To set up your Data Push app, you will need to first add the connection in your ItemPath site’s Settings.

In the Connections tab, click the “+” button to start a new connection and follow these steps:

  1. Give the connection a Name you choose.
  2. Set the Type to "API".
  3. Enter the base Address of the API call. (The path will be configured later when creating an integration.)
  4. Choose an Authentication Type. either "Basic" or "No Auth".
    1. If "Basic" authentication is selected, enter a Username and Password to use to access the system.
    2. If "No Auth" authentication is selected, you can enter authentication keys in the next step.
  5. Click "Save" to open next steps.

Once these settings are saved, you'll be able to set the test endpoint (usually /ping.) You can also enter headers that will be sent for all Data Push calls. For authentication keys, we recommend checking the Private box to indicate confidentiality. Those keys won't show in up any logs.

Test the connection and check for a green checkmark confirmation.
