About this task
This integration imports asset records to the Asset page in Oomnitza.
Before you start
Before you create the asset integration you must ensure that you have followed the steps in Adding your CSI Leasing credentials to Oomnitza.
You will also need to supply your CSI Leasing Security Token. The Security Token can be obtained via an API request. Consult your CSI representative for further information.
Adding the CSI Leasing global variables
To save time entering information when you create the integration and workflows, you can add the domain name as a global variable in Oomnitza. Alternatively, you can skip these steps and add the information manually when you create the asset integration.
- From the menu, go to Configuration>General.
- Click Global Settings.
- Click Add new variable (+).
- Enter CSI Leasing.Domain as the variable name.
- Enter your CSI Leasing domain name, such as
mycsi.csileasing.com. You do not need to provide the leading
https://as this is not automatically prepended.
- Repeat the steps above and create a variable for your CSI Leasing API key. Enter CSI Leasing.Security Token as the variable name and your API key as the value.
- Save your changes.

Creating custom mappings
Map CSI Leasing fields to Oomnitza fields to get the user information that you need. For the field mapping, it is recommended to follow these steps:
- Click Smart Mapping to automatically detect appropriate mapping fields. Values from the integration can also be dragged to the appropriate field on the Oomnitza side, or selected from the integration field dropdown.
- Create custom mappings for fields that do not exist on the Oomnitza side such as the CSI Leasing Asset ID.
- Click the down arrow on the ID field.
- Select Add new Oomnitza assets field.
- Update the Name field to CSI Leasing Asset ID. You can use this field later to run workflows.
