Description

Alumio’s connector package integrates Akeneo to Shopware via Alumio’s iPaaS (integration Platform as a Service). It helps easily connect the Akeneo PIM software to your Shopware store, in order to manage a wide range of products. The connector package operates on the latest, future-proof method of connecting the APIs of the two connected software, to create a seamless integration via Alumio’s cloud-based iPaaS. In context to the Akeneo to Shopware connection, this type of integration ensures the products are always synced correctly without any need for additional plugins. It also allows you to add customizations to your integrations via the iPaaS without any loss of data integrity.

What the Connector Package for Akeneo to Shopware delivers

  • Integration Data Routes
    These pre-configured data routes, are working ‘process flows’ that determine how the two connected software interact with each other. For example - a properly configured data route determines that the ‘products’ from Akeneo sync correctly with Shopware. In order to configure or modify these data routes, Alumio’s iPaaS interface offers Mappers and Transformers that allow you to map incoming data from one software to another connected software while transforming it to a format that works.

  • API Connectors
    API Connectors allows you to access and use the data provided by the APIs in order to create your own custom data routes. The API Connectors can be used to create a stable connection to the Akeneo and Shopware APIs, enabling the required authentications for both software to integrate. The API Connectors not only instantly acquire all the information from the connected web services, but they can also be used for sending data between both software.
