Integrations and API

Purpose

Integrations help you customize your experience with JobNimbus even further. You can enable features or create API keys to integrate with third party software such as QuickBooks, WePay, or CompanyCam.

Before we Get Into it

Before you can get started with integrations, you will first need to know if your subscription can have integrations. For a list of the subscription options, read our article on Subscriptions here. You can also visit our site to view subscriptions here.

You will also need to know which integration or integrations you will need to use with JobNimbus. For a full list of the software that integrates with JobNimbus, you can view our website here.

Please note that the services the companies with which we integrate may require their own subscription to use their program. Please look into each program to know if they need a subscription to use or not.

Overview

Accessing your Integrations

You can access integrations in two places in JobNimbus. They can be found in the "Third Party Features" section of the "Features" tab of your settings. They can also be found in the "API" section of settings.

Integrations in the Features tab

Integrations offered in the Features tab, allow you to integrate with the third party software simply by enabling the third party feature in JobNimbus.

To access the integrations in your Features tab, click on your name in the top right corner and select "Settings" from the drop-down menu. From your settings, select "Features" from the menu on the left, then scroll down to view our 3rd party features.

The integrations that are available through the Features tab are:

Integrations in the API tab

An API (or Application Program Interface) is a set of protocols, rules, tools, or definitions for building application software. The API key is a name given for a secret token that is submitted alongside a web service to identify the origin of the request. If the request is identified then it acts as an authentication and provides a set of access rights.

To access the integrations we offer that utilize an API token or key, click on your name in the top right corner and select "Settings" from the drop-down menu. From your settings, scroll down and select "API" from the menu on the left.

Integrations API

In the API page, you can create a API key by clicking on the "New API Key" button in the top right corner.

Integrations API add API

This will pull up a new API for you to create.

Integrations API new API

In this API creation, you can:

  1. Select a third party software from the drop-down menu. If there is not an integration in the drop-down menu that is included in our integrations web page, you can type the name in the drop-down menu and it will be added to your account. The options in the drop-down menu include:
  2. Select an Access Profile that can access the integration
  3. Save the API integration

Saving the API integration will populate an API key that you can use in the third party software to complete the integration.
