Integrations with ASP

A Native Integration between ASP and Grip is available for Participant, Item and Company data.

In this guide we will cover :

If you have already set up a successful connection within the Grip dashboard, and are ready to complete the integration, we recommend reading the primary Native Integration guide

Getting ASP Credentials 

To connect to ASP in the Native Integration Wizard, you will need:

  • API Key
  • API Secret (or password)

1. To get the key and secret, the you will need to open a support ticket with ASP at Ask for an API Key and API Secret (or password).


Connecting to ASP

This section will provide steps on how to connect to ASP. This section assumes that you have already the API Key and Secret. 

When would I use this?

These steps should be taken as your first step to configuring a Native Integration with ASP.

How do I use this?

1. Connect to ASP, there are five ASP blocks depending on that data that needs importing. Click on the block to begin setting up the integration. Only one block can be selected at a time. 

  • Visitors
  • Representatives
  • Speakers
  • Companies
  • Items

3. Next you can select your source event that data should be imported from. You can use the  built in search functionality. 

4. Select Source data from ASP . Click the down arrow next to 'Select data type(s)'. The source type should match the block selected. If there is a type you are expecting to see, but are not, reach out to your Grip contact.

Note: only one Grip data type can be selected, if additional types are needed, an additional integration should be set up.

5. Under the section 'Only retrieve records that were created within the following period' (pointers), select one of the two options:

    1. 'From the last time Grip successfully retrieved records' is the recommended option for integration that will be scheduled to run repeatedly. This will look for any new or updated records.
    2. 'From start time to end time' is the recommended option if you are trying to run an update and want to make sure all records are updated. The recommended start time would be when registration opened and the recommended end time would be today.

6. This has now connected the ASP to the Grip event, click next and move onto filtering and data mapping.
