OData

An open source data model protocol that uses REST to create and manage entities, as well as their properties, relationships, and data.

Integrations and Connectors

AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with OData:

  • Activities in Process Builder
  • Access tokens

Activities in Process Builder

You can use out-of-the-box activities for OData to execute actions in process-based apps.

An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.

Access Tokens

You can create access tokens for OData.

An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, application designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.

For more information, refer to Access tokens for OData.
