Alma integrates with external systems, such as vendor systems, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, metadata management systems, and remote storage systems, via standard protocols, such as S/FTP.
Configuring integration with external systems includes the following steps:
- Handling the data transition between Alma and the external system, including mapping the exported invoices’ fields to the external system fields. For details, see https://developers.exlibrisgroup.com/alma/integrations
- Defining an external integration profile in Alma, explained in this guide. Also see Configuring Integration Profiles.
This section describes how to configure integration between Alma and external systems, and is organized according to the following areas: Acquisitions, Resource Management, Fulfillment, User Management, and Administration.
If you are working with Alma in conjunction with MetaLib, you must configure your link resolver in MetaLib. For instructions, see the MetaLib System Configuration and Administration Guide.
