If your listing is set up as a manual integration type, you’ll be able to accept transactions on the App Center platform. You will provision new users manually each time rather than use API calls to make this happen automatically.
Before you’ll be able to request publication for your listing, you’ll need to complete the manual integration report. This is a walkthrough that serves as a bit of a training exercise for you to see how the platform works.
First, navigate to the edit listing screen:
- Log in to the App Center
- Click your name in the upper right corner and choose Publish Apps
- Click on products on the top ribbon
- Click Edit Product for the product that you are enabling for transact ability
- Find the Integration section on the left navigation bar of the screen
- First, visit the Edit Integration tab, and enter the email address that you’d like to be notified when a customer purchases the product and a new user needs to be provisioned. Click save
- Next click the Edit Authentication tab. When you provision new users to the App Center platform, your product icon will appear in their My Space view. When they click the product icon the customer will be able to access your application. The edit authentication screen is where you’ll specify where users are pointed to when they click the product icon.
There are several different methods that can be used on this tab, the mostly commonly used method is the Bookmark method. This method allows you to specify a URL that the user is sent to.
After selecting the Bookmark method, enter the URL that customers will use to access your solution after you’ve manually provisioned their user and click save.

- Click the ‘Mark Complete’ the buttons at the bottom of the integration report tab.

You you only have one edition set up or your edition doesn’t allow for an additional quantity or your edition is configured to not allow modifications, you’ll need to either add a new edition or change the settings to be able to complete this test
- Otherwise, modify the subscription quantity or change the edition and click continue to product settings
- Then, once you see confirmation that the subscription has been modified, click return to overview

- Then, in the popover window, select ‘event succeeded’ and then click save
- Click the integration report tab and you should now see that the percentage shows at 100%
- Next, click run Test next to each of the following tests and then click the return to overview button immediately after completing each step. Then, complete the event under the events tab each time.
- Note: if the subscription only allows 1 user, instead of starting with adding a user, start with removing a user, completing the event, and then adding the user.
- After the integration report is 100% complete the product will be ready to be published assuming you have all of the other .
