Integrate your custom tools and databases with your BRYTER module. Then add these integrations to your module as actions.
Learn more about Integrations below and get in touch with your BRYTER Customer Success Manager or Sales Representative to design an integration for your business needs.
What is an integration?
Your BRYTER solution allows you to integrate most of your existing tools and data stores (e.g. CRM, files storage, databases or document analysis tools). You can also work with BRYTER to integrate your tools and databases which are accessible via an API. Note that BRYTER can also host databases for you if, for example, your data is stored in an Excel spreadsheet.
What can integrations do?
Integrations come with a huge amount of Use Cases. Here is just a glimpse of what is possible (more here).
- Using SQL databases to look up the addresses of customers or employees
- Storing responses of a module in an Excel data table which subsequently can be downloaded as a CSV file
- Get the live exchange rate for a currency from a live API allowing you to convert currencies in real time
- Draw data from governmental databases (eg. Bundesanzeiger in Germany or Companies House in the UK)
- Connect to a flight database to get all information for a corresponding flight such as delay or destination
- Get the latest Corruption Perception Index of a given country
Once your tools or databases are integrated, they will be accessible as Integration actions in your module, as shown below.
How can Integrations be used?
Follow the steps below to use an integrated tool or database in your module.
- Select the plus icon “ + ” on a node.
- Select New Action.
- In the attribute editor which opens, choose an Integration, such as a database read integration in the list above.
You should see your new integration in the attribute editor as well as input parameter(s) you can edit. Based on the text or variable you assign to the input parameter, the Integration action will output responses consisting of text, numbers, email, images, or files. You can refer to the Integration action’s output in a different node to create a document or send an email to display this information to your users or use the output in the conditional logic of a module.
Get information from an integrated database
You can use an Integration action to read information from a database you have integrated to your BRYTER module and display it to your user. Follow the procedure above to add an Integration action to your module. The image below is an example of a Database read action.
As you can see, the Database read integration action requires an input. Add text directly to the input or refer to a value obtained in another node. This action produces various outputs which are displayed as text or as a number. You can refer to these outputs in another node, such as a document or an email, and thus display them to your user.
Write information to an integrated database
On the other hand, you can also use an Integration action to write information to a database you have integrated with your BRYTER module. Follow the procedure above to add an Integration action to your module. The image below is an example of a Database write action.
The Database write integration action requires two inputs: Flight No and Received Compensation. Add text directly to the input or refer to a value from another node.
This action produces an output in the form of a name which is written to your integrated database.
What is required to set up a new custom integration?
Please get in touch with your BRYTER Customer Success Manager or Sales Representative to discuss a custom integration solution for your tool or database. Once you have reached out to us, we will coordinate a kickoff meeting with a BRYTER Solution Architect. Together, we will work as a team to define the appropriate custom integration plan for your business and technical needs. During the implementation phase, the following information must be provided:
- BRYTER will need the contact details of a technically responsible person in your organization to set up an integration solution.
- Your tool or database needs to be accessible via an API. BRYTER will need a description of your API and associated documentation.
- BRYTER will need information about the specific part of your API that needs to be integrated.
- BRYTER will need the credentials, such as an API key or login data, for a test environment with test data.
