Integrating Drupal and iMIS with the ATS Drupal iMIS Bridge

ATS has created a Drupal login web service.  With this application a web user can log into a Drupal CMS and leverage a single sign-on to communicate with an iMIS backend. The following operations are supported. Find out more on the Drupal community site.

Key Features

  • Single Sign-on with iMIS
  • Ability to pull data from iMIS based on an IQA
The following features are available for iMIS 2017 clients only, and have been deprecated for iMIS EMS clients

  • Change Password: Change the username and password for the iMIS record that matches the old username and password.
  • Username Exists: Used to determine if a given username already exists in iMIS.
  • Validate Login: Determine which iMIS record the username and password belong to.
  • Validate Login with Data: Determine which iMIS record the username and password belong to and returns key data fields.

This Web Service is compatible with all Drupal versions. We have seen clients use all versions from 5 to 9. We expect that this will work with all versions of Drupal as the bridge is version agnostic. This also works with iMIS series 10 & 15 & 20, and EMS. For more information and pricing please Contact ATS.

Supported Use Cases

  • Using Drupal as your primary website, create a "Login" link within the header directing visitors to the iMIS login.  Upon successful login, the person is redirected back to Drupal with a token that can be used to retrieve additional information about the authenticated user. This information can be used to restrict access to content and display custom content in Drupal such as a welcome "John Doe" message.
  • Using the power of IQA, Drupal developers can utilize the bridge to pull content directly from iMIS, format the content, and display within the Drupal site.  Examples include but are not limited to, an event calendar, product listing, or even a "My Courses" page.
  • If you have a use case that is not listed or would like additional information, please Contact ATS.

SSO Process

Easy Does It: Integration Made Simple

The ATS methodology for bridges uses the iMIS API's to achieve the results you expect from a world-class integration. We work closely with third-party partners to use their API's in the most efficient manner. We pride ourselves on building integrations that work on many versions of iMIS. This means that when you upgrade iMIS the bridges will continue to work without having to be rewritten.

The results of this methodology include:

  • Compatibility with all versions of iMIS (unless otherwise noted) using the appropriate iMIS API's that work best with your version of iMIS.
  • The flexibility of on-premise or hosted models for the software.
  • Easy set-up and one-time configuration including installation services from ATS.
