Configuring the ScholarPack integration

To integrate with the ScholarPack MIS you must first authorise the API (Application Programming Interface).  This enables the limited sharing of data between the ScholarPack and ParentPay systems in order to upload specific pupil, staff and pre-admission records.

  • To begin the process you will need to ensure that your site has been enabled for upload via the V2 API by a member of the ParentPay team.
  • You will also need to have your ScholarPack login credentials and application URL in order to authorise the API
  1. Log in to your ParentPay Manager Application (as an overall manager)
  2. Navigate to People > Uploads
  3. Ensure you are on the ScholarPack access permissions tab (below)
  4. Select Login with ScholarPack

     
  5. Enter the required details from your ScholarPack instance.  These should be the same credentials you use to log in to ScholarPack
  1. Select Login

     
  2. Select Confirm
  3. A confirmation message will be provided:
    • In most cases, a success banner providing a summary of the data that can be shared through the API is displayed.

       
    • An error may be encountered.  This is normally the result of entering the credentials incorrectly.

       

Once configured correctly the API is authorised for an integrated upload to be completed and an option to Go to ScholarPack import or Revoke access is provided

Please note: Managers maintain the ability to revoke access from this screen at any time.


Troubleshooting

If the ScholarPack login fails to authenticate, it has been reported by some customers that this can sometimes produce an error page each time you then try to Login with ScholarPack.  To overcome this, clearing your browser cache normally resolves this problem.
