xStream


Emily Kennedy

Question

I am building a new website for internal use, the main feature is to be a lead management system. I would like to use xStream to import client details from Open GI into the website, and to create prospects in Open GI directly from the website.

 

The problem is that we purchased xStream many years ago to use with a website built for us by a third party, and nobody in our company has had any training on it.

 

Generally, I think the online guides are excellent and I have always found them to contain enough information required to use any of the Open GI products. However, I've found them rather lacking in the case of xStream. There are example scripts to cover different scenarios for which you might use xStream, which I imagine will be very useful once I've established the link between OGI and our website, but I can''t find any information on how the XML data is actually transmitted between Open GI and a web application.

 

If any xStream users can give me some pointers I'd really appreciate it.

 

Thanks a lot, Emily

Hi Emily - that's a great use for XStream and there are lots of posts here in the Forum covering a range of areas on XStream use

 

Given where you are in the XStream process right now I'd suggest a couple of important steps ...

 

1 - Ask OGI support to confirm that the XStream service is still configured correctly and proven as working 

  • You can waste hours, days and weeks trying to connect to the service and still have issues because it's no longer set up correctly or your infrastructure has changed. Get them to test it and to prove it and make sure you have the access details as well (IP and Port numbers etc)

 

2 - Use a tool like SOAPUI

  • This will allow you to test the processes outside of the web page and confirm the XStream service is working as expected

 

Step 1 is a must :)

 

Happy to assist further if I can!

Also - once confirmed and tested, make sure you can access the service outside of your local network 

 

If it cant be connected likely it is a firewall / port issue that you will need your IT / Infrastructure team to allow access to

 

That can be a little painful too ... :)

    • Hi Val - I've not heard this being an issue generally - very strange. OGI will be best to investigate. Would be good to know the outcome!!   Just a thought - is it only the extract / csv with the issue - or does the full printed report still not report these?  
    • Has anyone else come across this problem, we are getting quite a few cases where the renewal is not populating on the list.  OGI have been looking at this from the copy CSV lists we have sent them, but have not resolved this issue yet. 
    • Open GI Sanction Check Update!   Function shortfall now on the #OpenGI radar - watch this space! 
    • Partnership deals that are in the interests of Open-GI's profits and not the best infrastructure for their clients. HP - (30% returns from printers to servers when I worked for a HP partner. Haven't been pleasantly surprised with 6 more years of dealing with their hardware). Microsoft - Oh ook another 60 security holes and a zero-day (M$ product zero-days can only be fixed or mitigated by Microsoft) that has been actively exploited for over two months now. Sophos - Tavis Ormandy of Google's top security team, charitably wrote a 30 page paper, which concludes that the company was "working with good intentions" but is "ill-equipped to handle the output of one co-operative security researcher working in his spare time". Recently, they forced through Multi-Factor Authentication for their "cloud" management site (which has a really useless, coutnerintuitve and uninformative interface), that is completely useless in a ransomware take over, you could easily be left without access to your "cloud". They should implement physical keys if they are going to push for this, not software methods that can be taken over as part of an attack. 
    • The real question for Open GI is why is only 1 browser supported?   Why do you think that is?   10 points for each correct answer …
