APIs and Integrations

About

Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and Integrations represent the ability of applications or systems to hook into one or more components of a system supported by the Office of the University Controller to streamline the processing of frequently-occurring, large-volume financial transactions (minimum of 10,000 annual transactions). The scope and some examples of APIs and integrations our office currently manages include:

  • Document API (e.g., Service Billing API)
  • E-Commerce (e.g., PayPal, Vantiv)
  • Enterprise System Integration (e.g., HRMS Payroll to KFS)

Our Support Role

The Office of the University Controller must approve any API or integration to the KFS General Ledger. The review process for such requests includes first ensuring that the intended activity satisfies university compliance, controls, and reporting requirements. Additionally, our team of business analysts and system administrators advise on the technical configurations and coordinate endpoint testing. Submitting an API/integration request does not guarantee approval. If the request is not approved, our office may instead recommend more suitable solutions.

The form to request APIs and integrations is now available. To access the form, refer to APIs and Integrations Request Form. Please note, only IU fiscal officers may submit the request form. If you have questions regarding the form, please review the APIs and Integrations Request Form Definitions document prior to contacting the Office of the University Controller Business Analyst team at ucobas@iu.edu.
