Supporting the explosion of integration expected by customers

The SunFish Workplaze development kit controls how customization is handled by the application in order to prevent a conflict between customer-specific customization and future updates.  It also provides warnings of potential conflicts so that the developer can verify the impact and resolve it prior to deployment.

  • Going beyond attendance machine and journal interface
  • Improved API architecture for easier integration to third party systems
  • Prepare for interface by web, mobile, chatbot, API, etc
  • API builder, customers are able to create their own APIs for third party integration
  • Single architecture/code for web and mobile interfaces
  • SSO as standard
  • File integration is standard
  • API integration planning and implementation as part of project management

SunFish Workplaze supports two primary methods of API interface to allow for a balance between ease of configuration and flexibility to support advanced API interface requirement s.
Standard open API’s provide for most commonly utilized functions to be interfaced according to our documented standards and
The SunFish Workplaze API builder allows for any API interface to be configured in order to comply with third party standards or to supportunique API requirements.

This method can be used if a direct database connection to another application is permitted. One application simply needs to establish a database connection to the other application’s database using ODBC or JDBC drivers with the supplied credentials. Then it is just a matter of knowing which tables or views to retrieve the data needed, or to write to. This method is commonly used in a one-way interface, when one application only needs to read data from the other application, so the database access level can be limited.
With this method, there is no direct link between the two applications. One application exports the data into a flat file, usually in the format of a delimited text file or a spreadsheet. The file is then uploaded to the other application. This method can be automated by storing the exported file in a repository that is accessible by both applications. A scheduled task for one application exports data to a file at certain intervals, and another scheduled task for the other application reads the file from the repository and converts the data into its database. In SunFish, this method is commonly used for retrieving attendance data from fingerprint device. Files containing raw attendance data are periodically generated by the fingerprint application and stored in a specified folder. SunFish will then periodically check the folder for any new files and import the data.
