One of the most powerful features of Workplace is the ability to integrate with other tools in the corporate ecosystem. It is not uncommon that companies and organizations make use of various corporate tools to complement each other, but they normally work independently. Workplace has a solution to integrate these tools to be the point of entry for all of them.
To do that, we make our integration platform available to customers and partners, which enables you to develop and implement custom solutions using the Account Management API, Graph API, Webhooks, Authenticated Previews and Share Dialogs. To learn more about the Platform features, visit our developer documentation.
When we talk about integrations of Workplace, we can differentiate between two types of integration: Third Party Apps and Custom Integrations.Third Party Apps
Third Party Apps/Integrations
Third party apps or integrations are used by third-part SaaS software providers to integrate their product with Workplace. When a third party app is deployed, it has to go through a thorough security review, which allows it to be available to be installed and used by any Workplace customer. Workplace customers can access the Third Party App directory from the admin panel.
To learn more, visit our developer documentation for Third Party Apps.Custom Integrations
Custom Integrations are used by Workplace customers for in-house development (or bespoke development for the sole use of a single Workplace customer) to integrate their own tools or software ecosystem with Workplace. In the other sections of this documentation, you will find use cases and step-by-step instructions to deploy your own Custom Integration.
