Connecting WiseTime to Your Systems

There are a few ways in which you can connect WiseTime to your existing systems. We have a range of pre-built connectors that you can use; you can use our WiseTime Connector Library to create your own connector; or you can use our WiseTime Connect API to integrate with WiseTime. We may also be able to assist your team, or build a custom connector for you.

Please get in touch to explore the best solution for your team.

How Do WiseTime Connectors Work?

WiseTime connectors are installed alongside your systems and use the WiseTime Connect API to:

  1. Automatically create tags and keywords in WiseTime
  2. Receive user posted time from WiseTime

For example, the connector can create a new tag in WiseTime when a new case is added to your case management system, and generate a timesheet entry and matching invoice item whenever a user posts time to your WiseTime team.

Ready Made Connectors

We have implemented ready to use connectors for the following products, with more on the way:

  • Clio
  • Inprotech, CPA Global
  • Insightly
  • Jira Server, Atlassian
  • Patricia, Patrix IP Helpware
  • Patrawin, CPA Global
  • Generic SQL Connector, able to connect to most SQL databases

Connectors can run next to your systems in your own network, and communicate with WiseTime Connect over HTTPS. Our connectors are distributed as open source software, and the code is available on GitHub.

WiseTime Java Connector Library

Our connectors are implemented using our open source WiseTime Java Connector library. The WiseTime Java Connector library makes it easy to develop custom connectors with very little code. For example, our Jira Connector is implemented using only 3 classes.

The API for the WiseTime Java Connector Library is documented via Javadoc.

WiseTime Connect API

If you are not using Java, you can always use the WiseTime Connect API directly. The API is defined using OpenAPI and you can find our spec on GitHub. To get started, request a WiseTime Connect API key by emailing us at contact@wisetime.io. Next, find out how to authenticate with WiseTime Connect.

Downloads

Our connectors are available on Docker Hub.

We also have Windows GUI versions of our connectors that you can use to easily and quickly test out a connection. Note that these GUI connectors are not recommended for production use in teams with more than 2-3 users. You can download the latest versions using the following links:
