Integrating CIN7 with Inventoro is a straightforward process, which will take you just a couple of minutes. It does however require you to make settings on both sides (Inventoro and CIN7). Simply follow the steps described below and you will be connected in no time.
What needs to be done - top-level points:
- You'll need an Inventoro account - you can create new one (free trial) here
- You'll need to log in to your Cin7 account to access the API keys
- You'll need to set the permissions for the API connection
- You'll need to insert the API key to the Inventoro app
Step by step guide:
I. TASK - Set up an API connection in CIN7 and generate API key:
1. While logged in to your Cin7 account, navigate to https://go.cin7.com/cloud/apiSetup/Default.aspx.
[Admin - Settings panel - Integrations & API]
2. Select Add API Connection. Enter a name for your new API connection, we recommend Inventoro, and select Save.
3. You will see a new API key. Please copy this generated API key and save it for later.
4. Now go back to the API setup page and copy your API username. You will need it for later. See picture bellow:
II. TASK - Set Permissions
1. Go back to API Setup in your CIN7 account and click on Permissions link in the Inventoro API.
2. Make sure all the permissions are ticked for READ. Further set permissions for Branch Transfers and Purchase Orders to READ and also CREATE and UPDATE.
3. Then, click the Save button at the bottom of the table to update the permissions.
III Task - Connect CIN7 to Inventoro
1. Go back to the Inventoro app and click Connect at the top right corner of your screen. Choose Cin7 from the integration list and enter your Cin7 API username, and generated API Key (as described in Task I above) into the Inventoro connector as shown below:
2. Click Continue and then have a cup of coffee, we do the rest.
❗️ After the connection is set up, please allow up to several hours before your data actually appears in the Inventoro app. Basically, we need to import your data and calculate sales forecasts and optimum purchase order proposals. This is a large computation operation and takes some time. Once Inventoro will be ready you'll receive an email.
