Importing Data from your ERP/CRM
In most cases, you already have an ERP or CRM system keeping your customer data. SLASCONE’ API provides functions in order to be able to sync your customer data.
The DataExchange area of the API contains the relevant functions.
This function is based on the customerNumber field, which is the customer’s ID in your source system.
When updating a customer please note that this is a REST-compliant PATCH method. This means, that missing properties are not being altered, e.g., if customerType is missing from the request body, then the customer retains its customerType.
More about differential updates can be found here.
Typically, licenses are created using the SLASCONE UI. Nevertheless, you might want to import licenses from a legacy system or integrate this process in your backoffice operations.
This function allows you to create a license based on a master template ( templateName). Make sure your have properly set up your master template before using this functionality.
This function is based on the licenseId property.
When updating a license please note that this is a REST-compliant PATCH method. This means, that missing properties are not being altered, e.g., if expirationDate is missing from the request body, then the license retains its expirationDate.
If you want to reset the softwareReleaseLimitation, then use “softwareReleaseLimitation”: “none” or “softwareReleaseLimitation”: “”.
