FAQs for Integrating Time & Attendance

Integrating two software systems can seem like a daunting task to many. In an effort to help you on your cloud-based software integration journey, below are three frequently asked questions to learn how simple integrating a time and attendance system is.

What is a Web Services API?

A web services API is designed to allow external systems to connect with the SaaS engine. Your time and attendance system should be able to import and export data from its data store in multiple ways including flat files, FTP, and web services. The web services API is designed for end users to consume and send data via XML, JSON, or SOAP.

How does the API work?

Web services is composed of three different web service URLs. Users can use any language to interact with the STWS API as long as XML, JSON, or SOAP is the standard for sending and receiving data.

How do I set up Single Sign-On?

Enabling SSO can be done in a few simple steps. As an example, in stratustime you can navigate to the configuration interface and select General. Under General, the SSO options can be found in the Web Services section. Proper permission levels in the system are required to enable SSO. When under Web Services, you can check the box to enable SSO. At this time, a “Shared Key” GUID will be issued. After you enable SSO, you can choose to have web access & SSO, or SSO log in only. If “SSO log in only” is selected, stratustimelogin will be disabled.
