One direction / Bi directional integration

In Getint, we offer two primary types of data synchronization between integrated tools: one-directional and bi-directional integration. Understanding these concepts is key to effectively managing data

One-Directional Integration:

In a one-directional integration, data flows in a single direction from a source system to a target system.

This means that any changes made in the source system will be reflected in the target system, but not vice versa.

For example, updates in a Jira project can be set to automatically reflect in a connected ServiceNow instance, but changes in ServiceNow won’t impact the Jira project.

This type of integration is useful for scenarios where data consistency is needed from one primary system to another without reciprocal updates.

Bi-Directional Integration:

Bi-directional integration, as the name suggests, allows data flow in both directions – from the source to the target and from the target back to the source.

In this setup, changes made in either system are synchronized with the other.

For example, updates made in a Jira project and a connected Azure DevOps project are reflected in each other.

This approach is ideal for environments where ongoing collaboration and real-time data parity between systems are crucial.

Flexibility with Getint:

A unique feature of Getint is the ability for users to easily switch between one-directional and bi-directional integration at the field level.

This means you can customize how each field (such as summary, priority, labels, or custom fields) is synchronized between systems.

For instance, you might choose bi-directional synchronization for the 'priority' field but one-directional for the 'summary' field.

This granular control allows users to tailor the integration to their specific workflow and data management needs, ensuring optimal efficiency and data integrity.

In essence, Getint’s flexible integration approach empowers users to configure their data synchronization precisely as needed, be it one-directional or bi-directional, and even mixed within the same integration setup, providing a highly customizable and efficient data integration solution.
