Overview 

Sage Intacct connector is designed to allow a user to move data in, and out of, Sage Intacct on-demand financial application suite. As an Sage Intacct user, you can use DBSync's Sage Intacct connector to integrate any on-premise applications and legacy systems with Sage Intacct. This connector may also be used to integrate Sage Intacct with other on-demand or SaaS based applications - like CRM, E-Commerce, and others. Integrating with Sage Intacct consists of an XML request/response sent over an HTTPS connection. The technical details of this connection - such as request headers, error handling, HTTPS connection, etc. - are all elicited from the user to make implementation quick and easy.


Prerequisites

In order to establish a connection to your Sage Intacct account, from DBSync Sage Intacct connector, you'll need the following:

  1. You must confirm that your Sage Intacct account is subscribed to the XML gateway. Secondly, you must make sure that you have privileges to connect to the Sage Intacct API. Your Sage Intacct representative can confirm this for you by providing you with a sender ID and password, specific to the integration API.
  2. You must have Sage Intacct URL that you should connect to. The default is https://www.Sage Intacct.com/ia/xml/xmlgw.phtml. However, for your specific implementation, please confirm your URL with Sage Intacct.
  3. You must understand which interface(s) and XML request you would like to integrate basing on your business and integration requirement.
  4. You should also refer to Sage Intacct Developer site for detail description of the available interface. Supported API XML version is 2.1.

Connector Configurations

The Sage Intacct connector instance represents a single Sage Intacct account, including login credentials. If a user wishes to connect to multiple instances of the either sandbox/production then, s/he must create a separate connection for each and, configure the parameters accordingly. The table below represents parameters required for opening the connection to Sage Intacct user instance.

Supported Query format

The Sage Intacct Trigger allows DBSync core system to query entities from the Sage Intacct Backend services. Sage Intacct exposes a “get” and “get_list” interface which is masked using a “SELECT query syntax” exposed by the Sage Intacct connector. The  “SELECT query” syntax is given below:

select [ fld, fld2, fld3,…fldn / *] <fields>
from <entity>
where [<fld1> opr <fld2>] <single_condition>
or/and[<fld1><opr> <fld2>,<fld3><opr><fld4>]|or/and[<fld5><opr><fld6] <multiple conditions>
<where_clause>
order_by <fld1> asc, <fld2> asc, <fld3> desc <order_by_clause>

In the above-mentioned syntax:

Fields: The fields are actually the attributes, or the elements, within an entity that need to be fetched by the query. In case all the fields need to be fetched, an asterisk “*” can be used.

Entity: The entity which needs to be fetched from the Sage Intacct Backend.

Where Clause: The “where” clause takes in a series of “or/and “ conditions which internally contain the logical expressions ( the operands) which need to be operated upon. Please note that only the first condition will have two expressions as operands and any other additional operand will be a single expression.

Please note that a “single_condition” is also supported which consists of a single expression in the where clause.

Order By Clause: The “order_by” clause allows the sort order to be specified for the fields fetched.

Note that, 'where', and, 'order_by', clauses are both optional and need not be specified. The “Query Type” property in Sage Intacct Trigger specifies whether it is a list query or a single select query.

Following are some examples

 Select * from Customer

 Select Customerid,Name,Parentid,Termname,Custrepid,Shippingmethod,Custtype,Taxid,Creditlimit from Customer

 Select * from Invoice WHERE [whenmodified < 10/22/2010 00:00:00\]

 Select Recordno,Customerid,Name from Customer Where [Customerid = ZAB001] AND [Recordno = 24]

 Select * from Customer [key=Key_Value]
