The Getint app offers users seamless access to multiple connection views, simplifying management tasks.

This guide serves as a comprehensive walkthrough to help you effortlessly navigate and comprehend the various details related to your connections within the Getint app.

Accessing Connection Views

  • Navigate to Workflows: Begin by accessing the "Workflows" section within the Getint app.

  • Select "Connections": Navigate to "Connections" to access a comprehensive overview of your connections.

Connection Details:

Discover essential information such as the connection name provided during API Token or App access creation, and the App and URL name.

Understanding Access Permissions:

It's crucial to grasp the available access permissions associated with each connection. These permissions determine the level of access users have:

  • View" permission grants read-only access. This is also the Default permission for all New connections, not allowing others to use or modify it.

  • Use" permission enables users to interact and use the connection in their integrations.

  • "Edit" permission allows users to make modifications to the connection.

Actions and Modifications:

You can make changes to the connection, such as modifying an expired token, adding further access, modifying the URL, or changing the associated email.

Changing the URL is likely to affect integrations, as it alters the endpoint through which data is transmitted. Similarly, updating credentials, such as switching accounts, can disrupt integrations if the new user lacks access to the integrated projects.

  • Team access:

    • Click the three dots, then select "Edit." A sidebar will also appear. You can change the name of the connection.

    • In the dropdown menu, select the view you want to give for this connection.

  • Changing the Token or Email:

    • Click the three dots, then select "Edit." A new sidebar will appear. If necessary, modify the URL.

    • Select "Next". You can then see the options to edit the connection name, the email address, the personal token, and which type of access the team will have to that connection. Select your preferred options and select update.

Importing and Exporting Connections

Now, you have the option to Import and Export your Connection. This functionality proves invaluable when you need to transfer the connection to a new Getint instance. For instance, it's handy when transitioning from Cloud to On-premise or from Server to Cloud environments.

Exporting the connection:

  • Go to Workflows, select Connection, and find the one you want to export. Select the 3 dots on the right side and “Export”. Create an encryption key, which will work like a password, when importing it.

  • Copy the script that will appear on the next screen and take note of the encryption key created.

Importing the Connection:

  • On the instance where you would like the connection created, go to workflows, select Connection, and “Import” at the top of the page.

  • Give the connection a name and paste the script copied when exporting the connection.

  • Write the encryption key and select “Import”.
