Integration Tools

LN contains various integration tools. You can use these tools to integrate your LN environment with other applications or other LN environments.

  • Office integration

    You use the Office integration to integrate LN with MS Word and MS Excel.
  • Contacts and calendars

    You use this module to configure the data synchronization between MS Exchange and the LN Customer Relation Management applications.
  • Exchange

    You use the Exchange module to import and export data to and from LN.
  • Triggering

    The Triggering module is a small component in LN that is used to notify another site or application of an event in LN.
  • Synchronization server

    The Synchronization Server implements the publishing of event messages for LN. This is done by creating a synchronization object for a business object. A synchronization object is the selection of a business object, extended with selection of components and attributes and (optionally) a filter. The synchronization object enables the synchronization at runtime for the selected business object.
  • Event publishing

    Business data and methods in LN are grouped in business objects. A business object, also known as BDE, business data entity, is capable of publishing events when changes occur to its instances. A client application can request changes on such a business object to be published. In this scenario, when an instance of a business object is created or an existing instance of a business object is changed or deleted, a create, change or delete event is published. The Synchronization Server enables publishing of these events from LN.
  • Object Configuration Management

    You use this module to specify, by object type, if workflow authorization and approval logic applies to a business object. If an object requires approval, activation, or validation using ION Workflow, a Workflow Status is displayed in the relevant LN session.
