Connectwise Import

Import to Accelo from Connectwise with a few simple steps and make your business faster more efficient and easier to manage. 

Set up an Integrator Account

Before you import your data from Connectwise, you will need to set up an Integrator account within Connectwise. To do this:

  1. In Connectwise, go to System > Setup Tables > Integrator Login List

  2. Create a new user:

    • Choose a new Username and Password
    • Access Level: All Records
    • Then Enable ALL the available API’s
    • In setting up the user, you will need to manually check the Service Ticket API. You will need to choose one Service Board

After that, you'll want to create your API Keys.

  1. Navigate to "My Account" from the Settings option in the top right.

  2. Click on the API Keys tab.

  3. Click the + icon, enter in a Description (preferably something to remind you it’s for Accelo) and then save. The page should refresh and show you a Public and Private key (blank in the screenshot, but you should have a value populated in yours). Make sure to copy and save these keys, as they'll only be available when you create them.

Import Data into Accelo

After you set up an Integrator account, navigate to Configurations and find Import & Exports to start the following step by step process:

  1. On the first step of the Connectwise Import, enter your Username, Password, Connectwise server and Connectwise company name. This is not your normal login, it is the Integrator login account (see above). Click the Next Step button when you're ready.

  2. The second step of the Connectwise import is to set your import options. You'll have to choose the status that you'd like to import your Companies under, whether you'd like to import tickets from ConnectWise, and map your Connectwise staff members against AL staff so that imported issues will be assigned to the correct staff member

  3. Once you've clicked the Start Import button, you'll be presented a confirmation screen that the import has begun. When the import has completed, you'll receive an automated email to let you know when an import is complete.
