Setting up PowerPick Web Services for ItemPath

A requirement for creating orders in ItemPath—with the ItemPath API or apps like Cycle Counts, Order Builder, or Order Processor—is PowerPick's Web Services module. This is ordered through your Kardex dealer.

You can check whether your PowerPick license includes Web Services under the Help menu, under License options. If item GP.54 is listed, you have the Web Services module.

Once you've determined that Web Services is installed, ItemPath requires a two things to be set up PowerPick: a user and a Web Client station.

1. A PowerPick User: In User Management, create a user. It may be helpful to include "ItemPath" in the username. It is also recommended to set this user at an admin level with unrestricted Command Rights, to avoid any challenges with permissions.

Make sure to save this username and password. At setup, you will need to either provide the ItemPath support with these details, or enter them yourself in your Kardex connection settings in ItemPath.

2. A PowerPick Web Client Station (required for order processing): In Warehouse Management, create a station with the type set to "Web Client."

Select the station's logical bindings to each Storage Unit (access point) that ItemPath will need to have access to. You may need to reach out to your PowerPick integrator to determine what these should be.
