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.
