An API is a method third-parties use to integrate with ScholarPack and access information. There are lots of different API’s available to your school including Wonde, Groupcall, Parentpay, CPOMS, LGFL.
Connectivity with ScholarPack is managed via our REST (Representational State Transfer) API.
You'll need to check with your integrator for the link or an option to integrate with ScholarPack, as we integrate with many partners who often update where these links are. Once they have shown you where to go to set up the integration, you should be presented with a pop-up that looks like this:
The user will need to have both Admin and Sysadmin roles on ScholarPack. It's our experience that most schools have set themselves up with the Head, Business Manager and/or main Administrator with both roles. If you lack the correct rights, an error message will be displayed.
Enter your ScholarPack details - the username and password you'd normally enter when logging into ScholarPack, along with the URL which can be found at the API dashboard page (Admin > Config > API Configuration - just copy the URL displayed top right of your page and paste into the webform School URL section).
You will need to click the box that you are not a robot.
Top Tip: if it keeps clearing your password, this could be caused by a URL not including a "/" on the end of it. Try submitting it again with a forward slash on the end of the URL.
Once you've logged in successfully, your integrator will work with ScholarPack.
