Integrations and Connectors
AgilePoint NX integrates in these ways with SharePoint on-premises:
- AgilePoint Dashboard
- Activities in Process Builder
- Tasks in List Forms
- Lookups in eForm Builder
- Data source for process-based apps
- Data source for form-based apps
- Document repository for process-based apps
- Document repository for eForms
- Access tokens
The Dashboard is a SharePoint App Part that lets you use the AgilePoint Work Center (Classic) in SharePoint. AgilePoint NX SharePoint Dashboard lets you manage your AgilePoint tasks and processes, from the convenience of on-premises SharePoint.
For more information, refer to AgilePoint NX Dashboard.

Activities in Process Builder
You can use out-of-the-box activities for SharePoint to execute actions in process-based apps.
An activity is a functional unit, or task, in a process-based app. Activities that integrate with a third-party system provide access to the API functionality for that system in a simple, point-and-click, form-entry format. This means that you can easily leverage APIs without writing code.

Tasks in List Forms
You can use SharePoint list forms to complete tasks in a process-based app.
Lookups in eForm Builder
You can create lookups for SharePoint in eForm Builder and form-based apps.
A lookup is an automated procedure that retrieves data from an external data source, such as a database or third-party service, to display runtime. For example, you can use a lookup to populate the options in a list on an eForm.
For more information, refer to SharePoint lookup configuration screens.

Sample lookup configuration screen
This image is only one example configuration screen from the Auto-Lookup form control. It does not show all the configuration options, and lookups can be configured and executed in multiple ways. The Auto-Lookup control can perform a lookup for eForms or other controls. However, many other form controls have built-in lookup capabilities — for example, the Drop-Down List form control. For information about how to configure lookups, refer to eForm Controls.
Data Source for Process-Based Apps
You can use SharePoint as a primary data source for your process-based app. A primary data source provides a default data model for your app.
For more information, refer to SharePoint Data Source Configuration (New Process Model).
SharePoint Configuration > Configuration tab
Data Source for Form-Based App
You can use SharePoint as a primary data source for your form-based app. A primary data source provides a default data model for your app.
For more information, refer to Form-based app data source.
SharePoint Configuration > Configuration tab
Document Repository for Process-Based Apps
SharePoint can be as a file document repository in a process-based app. There are many activities that let you upload and download files from various third-party repositories.

Document Repository for eForms
SharePoint can be as a document repository to upload and download files in eForms. In an eForm or form-based app, file transfer is handled with the File Upload form control.
Sample file repository for eForm configuration screen
You can create access tokens for SharePoint.
An access token is a secure object that stores an endpoint (usually a URL) and authentication credentials to connect to a service or technology. Often this is an external or third-party service, like Salesforce or SharePoint, but access tokens can also connect to an AgilePoint NX enviornment, local database, or other types of technologies. Once an access token is created, app designers can simply select and reuse it, rather than entering the credentials each time they are needed.
For more information, refer to Access Token for SharePoint.
