Integrations Overview

Philosophy

  • Let systems of record be systems of record and leverage them in real time.
  • Built using code -- so that they can be tested...etc.

Types of Integrations

Integrations for the Kinetic platform are loosely organized based on their function.

There are integrations that lookup or pull data in from other applications.

There are integrations that push to other applications to create, update, or delete.

Handlers can (and often do) do both.

Below is a brief description of each type of integration and how and where they are used in the Kinetic platform.

Authentication Integrations

Form & Portal Integrations

Bridges are mainly used to retrieve data from applications (LDAP, Salesforce, etc) and display it in user interface forms. A classic example is getting assets matching a specific User Id or Site.

Workflow Integrations

Handlers are available in the workflow application and can integrate to retrieve, create, update, and/or delete. In fact, handlers are the most flexible integration option for the Kinetic platform.

File System Integrations
