Cloud Requirements

To set up ItemPath, we’ll need a few things:

  • PowerPick SQL Server username, password, database name, dedicated IP address, and port number (if changed from the default port 1433). The dedicated IP address should be a public IP accessible outside of internal networks, as ItemPath runs in the cloud.
  • Your PowerPick SQL Server will need to be able to accept remote connections via IP. For more details on how to set this up, visit the SQL server documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/database-engine/configure-windows/configure-a-server-to-listen-on-a-specific-tcp-port?view=sql-server-ver15
  • If you are planning to use ItemPath to create or process orders, we will need a dedicated IP and port number for your machine running the PowerPick rule engine. The dedicated IP address should be a public IP accessible outside of internal networks, as ItemPath runs in the cloud.

In Power Pick, we need the following (your Power Pick integrator can help you with this):

  • The PPG Web Services module. This is required if ItemPath will be creating orders (e.g. through the API or with the Order Builder app).
  • A Web Client station. Add a station as a Web client type. Provide us with the Station Name.
  • An ItemPath user. Ideally with Admin-level command rights. Add a user and let us know the username and password.

Once we have these items, we'll launch your hosted version of ItemPath and pass you login details and an IP address that you can add to your firewall.

If you’d like to create a firewall to limit access to your SQL server or IP, you’ll want to whitelist ItemPath’s IP address, available in the your ItemPath user account.

Power Pick Global (PPG) Module

  • The PPG Web Services module is required when the scope of ItemPath includes creating, allocating, and processing orders. Order this from your Kardex dealer.
