Connections in Qntrl

Qntrl allows users to integrate with internal Zoho applications and other third-party applications using Connections. Connections can be established in Qntrl by configuring the  custom functions.

Please create relevant custom functions before creating a connection.

Own Connection:  Connections created by the user will be displayed here.
Shared Connection:  Connections shared within a team will be displayed here.

Benefits of connections

Conventionally, integration of an application like Qntrl with other services require generation or regeneration of authentication tokens every time a user connects with the service. On configuring Connections , users can integrate with services instantly as the authentication tokens are generated automatically. 

Add a new connection


Users can either connect with an available service or create their own  connection with a  custom service.


Connect with an available service


To make integrations easier, we provide a set of services that are most frequently used by our customers. After configuring the basic  details, users can establish a connection. 
  1. Navigate to  and select Connections under Advanced from the menu.

  2. Click  Add Connection.

  3. Under Pick Your Service tab select a third-party or internal Zoho service.

  4. Configure the service details under the Connection Details section.




  5. Click  Create and Connect .

    • The  Connection Summary page displays the details of the connection. You can also edit the service details here. Click   to go back to the  Connections  page. 




  6. Click  to connect with the third-party service. Enter the required details, such as the Domain ID and user credentials, to establish the connection. 

 



Once the authentication is successful, the service will be ready to use.

Note:
  • The scope of the connection varies with each service.

  • For authentication methods using the  Basic Auth  protocol, configuring the  Actual Parameter and  Parameter Display Name  fields help with the verification process. While establishing the connection, a dialogue box prompts you to enter the configured parameter value. The integration will only be successful if the parameter values match.

  • For authentication methods using  OAuth 2.0 protocol, a callback URL must be mentioned in the respective third-party service. 


Connect with a custom service


In addition to the services provided by us, users can also connect with other third-party services. To establish a custom connection,  follow the steps below.    
  1. Navigate to  and select Connections under Advanced from the menu.
