How to set up ConnectWise integration with Zomentum

 

The Integration with Connectwise has 2 important steps. One is the creation of the API user to get the required credentials. The second is the integration using this credential in Zomentum and configuring the requirement for the sync on the platform.

 

Step 1: Create API User in ConnectWise

  • Login to your ConnectWise manage cloud account.

  • Go to System → Members

  • Switch to the API Members tab

  • Click on the '+' icon

  • Enter member ID (Ex.: ZomentumAPI)

  • Enter member name (Ex.: Zomentum API User)

  • Select Role ID as Admin & Level as Corporate. Alternatively, see this article to create a new Role with advanced (more secure) permissions.




  • Click Save at the top

  • Once saved, the two API keys will show. Make sure you save both keys for future reference.

    Note: You won't be able to access the Private key later, so if you miss making a note of it and need the credentials later, you'll have to recreate the API Keys. 

 

 

Step 2: Set up your ConnectWise integration in Zomentum

 

I. Connecting to ConnectWise

  • Navigate to Settings > Integrations tab

  • Under PSA > Connectwise Manage > Click on Connect.




  • Enter the Connectwise credentials in the ‘Connect’ screen and click on ‘Save and Proceed’. 

 

 

II. Settings


Zomentum as your CRM

The integration is set for Zomentum to be used to manage the entire sales process and activities including Opportunity management and Document creation. 

 

 

 

 

Select how data you want the data to Sync 

  • Both pull new entities from ConnectWise and push Won opportunity to ConnectWise:

This method of integration will only sync the entities which are newly created in Zomentum to Connectwise. It also will sync the Won Opportunities to Connectwise.

 

Important Note: For all of the above modes of integration, we sync entities between the systems only when they are created the first time. Any updates made to the entities, would not be pulled or pushed. Eg: If a new client has been created in ConnectWise, we pull that information into Zomentum as it is a newly created entity. However, if you update the client’s telephone number on a later day/time, that information would not be synced. 

 

  • Real-Time Sync: 

As the name suggests, selecting this mode allows users to sync information between the systems regardless of the status of the Opportunity and the document. It also allows real-time sync for any ‘updates’ made to entities across the product modules.

Important Note: The real-time sync Pulls information from Connectwise every 15-mins and pushes data from Zomentum in real-time. So in case any changes/updates are made in Connectwise, it might take up to 15 minutes to sync the change to Zomentum.

 

 

 

Choose how to Sync Bundles:

 

In this section, you will be able to choose how Bundles are synced between Zomentum and Connectwise.

 

  • Push the bundle product as a single product to Connectwise: Here the bundle is shown as a single product when pushing the bundle to Connectwise. Here the Child Products are not pushed from Zomentum to Connectwise and only pushed as a single item when synced to Conncetwise.

 

  • Push child products of the bundle to Connectwise: If this option is selected, only the Child products which belong to the bundle are pushed to Connectwise. This means that the child products which belong to the bundle are pushed as individual products to Connectwise in the Sync.

 

  • Push bundles as Bundle to Connectwise: As the name indicates, when this option is selected, Bundles are pushed as Bundles to Connectwise.

 

 

Select what data you want to Sync:

There are multiple filters using which you can filter out the details which are synced between Zomentum and Connectwise. Each set of Filters and their corresponding descriptions are added in the filter below:

III. Field Mapping


The Field Mapping section is used to configure the mapping of a certain set of Fields which can be mapped between Zomentum and Connectwise. It has 3 sub-sections under it, using which you can map the fields for:

  1. Opportunities

  2. Products

  3. Tax Rates



1. Opportunity Field Mapping

 

The stage and status mapping are shown based on selecting the set mapping option.

Stage Mapping: Stage mapping is designed in a way to map one stage in Zomentum to a particular Stage in ConnectWise. ie, the system will not populate the option to map a stage in ConnectWise to a stage in Zomentum if the former has already been selected in any of the other stages. 

Status Mapping: Stage mapping is designed in a way to map one stage in Zomentum to a particular Status in ConnectWise. ie, the system will not populate the option to map a stage in ConnectWise to a stage in Zomentum if the former has already been selected in any of the other stage.

Create a new custom field called "CW Status" and sync with ConnectWise's status field". When selected, only stage mapping will be shown and a custom field will be created for status.

Note 1: It is optional to map all stages and statuses, not only for won/lost stage. In case the mapping is not given, we use the default stage and status selected.

Note 2: If you do not have the adequate number of stages created in ConnectWise to be mapped against stages in Zomentum, we recommend that you create additional stages in ConnectWise and reinitiate the setup. 

 

Note 3: If a single stage in Zomentum has both ConnectWise ‘stage’ and ‘status’ mapping, we will consider stage mapping and pull in the Opportunity from ConnectWise. 

 

 

2. Product Mapping 

  • If you would like to keep a standard product mapping between Zomentum and ConnectWise, please select the checkbox as shown in the below screenshot. 

 

  • If you wish to have individual product mapping for the Product Types, Category/Subcategory Type, Product Class and Product ID, you may wish to leave the checkbox unchecked and do a one-on-one mapping as shown below:

Note: You will also be asked to complete the Product Name from Zomentum to either the ‘Product ID’ or the ‘Product Description’ in ConnectWise. If you choose to map the Zomentum Product Name to ‘Product Description’, the system will also request you map a field in Zomentum to map to the Product ID, as Product ID is a mandatory field in ConnectWise.

 

3. Tax Mapping

 

  • Tax rates can be imported from your ConnectWise account.

    Note: Zomentum has both Tax Region and Tag Categories whereas ConnectWise only has the Tax Region. When we import the Tax regions from ConnectWise, Zomentum associates two categories to each of them. (i) Taxable and (ii) Non-Taxable. The Non-taxable will have a 0% tax which can be associated with the Non-table tax regions. 

  • MSP’s can also directly wish to have map Tax rates in Zomentum to Tax rates in ConnecWise. 


IV. Save and Start Sync

 

Once the above configurations are set, you can click on the “Save and Start Sync” button to Save the integration setting and start the sync for the accounts.
