Installing the Sage Intacct Connector


The Sage Intacct Connector is an API-based bidirectional sync. The sync imports user, department, and entity data into Certify, and exports expense reports into Sage Intacct

This article shows Certify Administrators how to install and assign permissions within the Sage Intacct Connector

Installing the Sage Intacct Connector

Before using the connector, reach out to a Certify representative to enable the Disable Earlier Processing Date feature for your account. This prevents expense reports from being processed with a past posting date. Additionally, this integration requires the Platform Services and Web Services subscriptions to be enabled in Sage Intacct.

Step 1: In Platform Services, select Applications. Then, click Install From XML and select the provided package to upload. Intacct will install the application.

Please Note: You can obtain the required XML package from your Certify representative.

Updating the Sage Intacct Connector

After installing the XML package, you can update or upgrade an existing package in Platform Services

Step 1: Select Edit to make any changes to the update, then click Save

Step 2: Once the application is updated in Platform Services, go into the Emburse Certify application menu and select Registration.  Click the Register button to register.

Please Note: Failure to complete this step may result in reduced functionality or result in errors when the integration schedule runs.

Company Settings

The Sage Intacct Connector requires a Web Service user, as well as Service Senders to process web service requests between Certify and Sage Intacct. 

Web Service Users

The connector requires a defined web service user.

Step 1: Click Web Services users under the Company application, then click Add to fill in the web service user details. 

Click Save once all the fields are entered. 

Please Note: The email address must be a valid email address, as a password is sent to the email address entered.

Step 2: Next, set the permissions for the new web service user. Permissions include the options to display record Lists, View records, Add new records, Edit records, or Delete records. 

At a minimum, the Web Services user will need the following:
