API to build your own integrations
Example use cases
The AlisQI API has many applications, we are often surprised by the integrations our customers build. Use cases of the AlisQI API include:
- Master data from ERP to AlisQI
- Manufacturing orders from ERP to AlisQI
- Batch release from AlisQI to ERP
- Specification management (from PLM to AlisQI)
- Quality Data download to ERP or data warehouse
- Instrument, sensor or SCADA integration
JSON over HTTPS
The AlisQI API is based on JSON over HTTPS GET/POST.
Since the AlisQI data model is fully customizable, users can create their own forms and workflows, the API is dynamic as well. AlisQI offers a dynamic API documentation in the application. This dynamic documentation describes all parameters and fields in great detail, including request and response examples.
The AlisQI API uses tokens for authentication (authToken). All tokens are linked to exactly one user account. Every user account can have multiple tokens. Permissions for tokens are derived from the related user group. This allows for very granular permission management per integration.
Workflows and webhooks
To support bi-directional integrations, the user-defined workflows can call webhooks. These webhooks enable you to trigger processes, both within AlisQI or in external systems. The payload in these webhook calls is user defined and can contain all fields from the AlisQI process forms, as well as any other static values.
AlisQI can easily be integrated with individual applications through our API. When you need to integrate with a multitude of applications, sensors or devices, it may make sense to use an iPaaS platform.
Integration platform as a service (iPaaS) is a set of automated tools that integrate software applications that are deployed in different environments. AlisQI simply plugs into the iPaaS to communicate with other applications.
