As a Preferred Distributor Partner, SHI offers an integration to send asset information such as Model, Manufacturer, Serial Number, Purchase Date, and PO Number directly into Oomnitza when the product is ordered.
This integration is built and hosted by SHI. For further details please see below. For any questions, or to request an integration, please contact your SHI representative and ask about the Oomnitza EDI integration. (Please note that this integration is still in Beta.)
For more information on SHI, visit shi.com.
SHI is able to provide the following fields through their integration. These fields can be configured to meet your business needs.
- Operating System
- Serial Number
- Purchase Date
- PO Number
- Asset Type (Hardware, Software, Microsoft License Only)
- Model (Manufacturer Part #)
- Device Name
- Asset Tag (Available if configured in SHI warehouse)
SHI also offers the ability to filter the data sent through the integration. By default, SHI allows 5 separate filters to be applied to the report. One filter per one column/field.
- More can be allowed, but extra development would be required to allow for more than 5 separate filters.
- With each filter, you can have up to 3 separate conditions. Keywords "AND" and "OR" can be used to specify whether they are all required, or only 1 must be met.
(Filter by Manufacturer): Manufacturer Equals Apple, or Microsoft, or Lenovo.
This example ensures that only products from these 3 manufacturers will be selected.
Manufacturers can be switched out as desired.
(Filter by Purchase Date): Purchase Date Doesn't Contain '10/23/2019' and Doesn't End With '2020'
This example will only use items purchased in any year that is NOT 2020, but will also exclude purchases made on 10/23/2019
What SHI needs from you:
To configure the integration, SHI requires a few key pieces of information to get it set up.
- Oomnitza Endpoint URL (e.g. shi.oomnitza.com)
- Client API token (See Below)
- Filter requirements
Steps below take place after customers work with Oomnitza to create an environment for that customer/company.
Acquiring a Token:
In order to generate an API token in Oomnitza, navigate to the Settings page and select “API”.
From the API page, Select “+ Add New” to generate a new API token. You’ll be prompted to enter a name for the token:
Once you’ve done this, you’ll be given the new API token. This will only be displayed once, and cannot be recovered if lost, so make sure to store it somewhere secure:
For external services, we recommend creating a new User that is specific to that service. Once created, you can log in as that user and generate an API token associated with that account. This makes the activity of the API token easier to identify and control, and prevents issue as your team members change.
