Before we can make use of third party property information, we need to ensure that the property is correctly connected to the integration we're requesting data from.
The method for manually connecting a PriceFinder property differs only slightly from the method outlined in the Core Logic Connecting a Property section.
Depending on the status of the connection, one of two dialogs will appear:
- Create Connection
- View Connection
The status of the connection can be viewed in the right bar.
- Squares with a solid colour indicate that the associated integration is connected.
- An empty circle indicates that a remote property hasn't been linked for the current record.
The Create Connection dialog allows us to search for and link a remote property against this record.
- For the Price Finder version of this dialog, the street number is pre-filled according to the street number of the current record.
- Begin by entering a street name and allowing Rex to request a list of results from the Price Finder servers.
The third party record address can always be viewed on the third party integration tab.
When PriceFinder sends back a response, a list of matching addresses are displayed.
- Select an appropriate record and the Connect Property button will be enabled.
- Clicking this will link the property to the remote property of PriceFinder.
Viewing a Connection
When a remote property is connected, two things happen.
The remote property can be viewed on the integration tab, and the action for the integration at the right bar changes for the context of viewing the connection.
