Sync orders, shipments and inventory between Onport and ElasticPath.
Onport allows you and your business to connect and sync sales, purchases and inventory data across multiple e-commerce stores and offline sales channels. Elastic Path is among the several ecommerce platforms that Onport currently supports.
Here are some of the activities that Onport is able to perform with an Elastic Path store.
- Fetch Orders from Elastic Path
- Create Fulfillments
- Update Inventory Quantities
- Update Variant Prices
COLLECTING THE API CREDENTIALS
In order to be able to connect Onport with your Elastic Path, it is important to collect the API keys from your Elastic Path administration panel.
The API keys are specifically the store ID, client ID, and client secret. Each user who is granted access to an Elastic Path store receives a unique client ID and client secret. You can access the Elastic Path Dashboard Home page to collect the API keys.
You may also want to collect the Fulfillment endpoint URL.
Once you access the Dashboard, click the API link and copy the API credentials in a safe place.
CONNECTING TO ELASTIC PATH
New Elastic Path stores can be added within the setup area.
After logging into Onport, click Integrations -> Select Elastic Path
In the next screen, click New elastic-path-store to create a new Store Configuration.
Next, paste the credentials and URL you previously copied from the Elastic Path Dashboard.
Here is an example of how the fields need to be populated.
Once done, click Save. Onport will start importing products into Onport shortly after the configuration is completed.
Currently, Onport does not support publishing items from Onport into Elastic Path. You can publish products from Elastic Path and Onport will import them regularly into the system.
If you wish to remove an item from your Elastic Path store, you are recommended to first delete the product in Elastic Path. Next, you'll need to remove it from Onport.
Find the variant in Onport by clicking the Inventory link from the left menu and searching for the name or SKU. Once you’ve found the variant, select the checkbox next to it and click the trash icon in the upper corner of the screen.
If you wish to publish this item again, make sure to publish it on your Elastic Path store first. It will soon sync with Onport and inventory feeds will potentially connect to it via SKU.
