An app connector creates a communication channel between your application and the Integry app. Using your application's API, you can connect it to Integry for seamless integrations with other apps. As a result, your users can enjoy endless integrations and achieve their daily tasks efficiently with Integry.
To access integrations with other apps, you need to first build your apps on the Integry platform in the form of a connector. This app connector for your app will tell Integry how to communicate with it. Therefore, you need to build an app connector for your app to establish integrations with other apps.
In this article, we'll explain how you can connect your app or any third-party app with Integry using the app connector feature.
Creating an App Connector in Integry
In this step-by-step guide, we'll help you build an app connector by showcasing examples and relevant screenshots.
Let's get started.
Step 1: Go to the Integry dashboard and navigate to the 'Connectors' tab. You can connect as many apps with Integry as you want. Then, click on the 'Connectors' tab to initiate the process.
Step 2: Here, you'll see two sections.
One is called 'Integry Connectors,' and the other one is called 'Third-Party Connectors.'
The first one is called Integry Connectors because (for demo purposes) we've logged into the Integry web app using Integry's domain email. If you log into Integry's web app using your own company's domain email, it'll show your company's name here.
The third-party connectors allow you to connect any third-party application of your choice into Integry.
Step 3: Since the process of creating connectors for your own company and third-party apps is the same, we'll continue with creating an app connector for Integry.
For that, click on the 'Create Integry Connector' button.
This launches the app connector builder, where you can input the basic information and configure your authorizations. We'll discuss both below.
Adding Your Basic Information
A wizard form will appear where you can begin adding your information step by step at any given point in time. The wizard will only show the section that requires your attention and hide the rest of the sections so that you don't get distracted. Learn more about the wizard flow here.
Start by providing basic details of your app.
Step 4: First of all, you need to fill in the public-facing URL of your application or the company for which you want to build a connector. Then, click 'Continue' to move forward.
Step 5: In the next step, you need to provide app details, like the title, description, icon, and branding color of your company.
Based on your application's name, this data will be fetched automatically and will be pre-filled on the screen (using a data enrichment tool called the Clearbit API).
If you want to override the default fetched information, you can do that by clicking anywhere on the text/input area.
Similarly, you can replace the pre-fetched icon with your own custom logo. For that, you'll have to upload your custom logo by clicking the 'Upload App Emblem' button. (Refer to the following image)
This will launch the file browser on your system, and you can select any image file from the source folder.
Note: Your custom image should fulfill the requirements mentioned here in the form. Your image must be square, sized 128px x 128px, and up to 2 megabytes in size.
Finally, you can change the branding color of your app by clicking on the auto-selected color. A color spectrum will appear (as shown below), and you can pick any color you want by dragging your cursor over the color spectrum.
Click on that color to choose. The color code for that color will be fetched automatically and fill in this field.
Note: The fields marked with (*) in the form are the required fields. You can hover over the field labels and read the brief description of that label. This will help you be more specific while filling in the required information.
Step 6: Verify all of your information. Once you're satisfied, click on 'Continue' to move forward to the next step.
Now, the wizard flow will unhide the 'Authorization' tab for you, where you can configure your app's authorization method.
