Create an app connector, user and token (AFAS Remote)

Create the system user that is used for communication.

Next, unblock the app connector and create a token for the system user.


Add and authorise a command line user

In every environment that you want to access using the connector, you specify one command line user. If an environment already contains a user for whom the Command line check box is selected, you can use this user for AFAS Remote as well.

To add a command line user:

  1. Start Profit.
  2. Log in to the environment.
  3. Go to: General / Management / Authorisation tool.
  4. Go to: User / New system user.

  5. Enter the user name in the User field.
  6. Enter the description.
  7. Enter the password.

    The connector user must always have a strong password.

  8. Click on: Next.
  9. Select the Command line check box.
  10. Click on: Finish.
Create a token

AFAS Remote uses tokens for the authentication. A token is a unique key for the combination of an environment, a device and a command line user.

If you want to replace an existing token, delete the old token of the user in question and create a new token.

To unblock an app connector:

  1. Go to:General / Management / App connector.
  2. Open the properties of the app connector AFAS Remote.
  3. Deselect the Blocked check box. This is a one-time step if you are new to AFAS Remote.

To create a token:

  1. Go to the tab: User tokens.
  2. Click on: New.
  3. Select the user.
  4. Enter the description. This must be unique.
  5. Click on: Next.

    You see the generated token.

  6. Click on: Copy. Use this action to copy the token to the Clipboard.

  7. Click on: Finish.
  8. Start Microsoft Notepad on your local system.
  9. Paste the token.
