Registering an App on an External System

To obtain the values of the fields, register your app on the external system. Each external system allows this to be achieved in different ways, so the corresponding documentation must be consulted.

By clicking the Go to settings button (1 - Figure 31) you will be redirected to the screens from Figures 33 and 34 (below), depending on whether the integration is successfully activated (Figure 33) or not (Figure 34).

Authorization Process

By clicking the Authorize button (2 - Figure 31), you will be redirected to a page of the external system, where you will be required to log in to the external system (if you are still logged out). This allows for a connection between the two systems. If you were connecting to Zendesk, for instance, you would be prompted with the message from Figure 32 (after logging in).
