Getting Started with the PPM Open Interface
Introduction to the Open Interface
The Open Interface allows integration of data from third-party products with key Project and Portfolio Management Center (PPM) entities. Relevant information from these products can be used for:
Generating or updating users from a database or LDAP server
Importing an organization model into PPM
Generating requests and packages
Performing workflow transactions for package lines and requests
The application program interface (API) described in this document uses interface tables within the PPM database. Data added to these interface tables is validated and eventually imported into standard PPM tables. This generates entities that can be processed using PPM.
