A few questions about erpnext

Web Notes team,

I really like what you have done with erpnext. It’s simple, fast, and
feature rich.

I’m planning to implement this for an online store and have a few
questions:

  1. In order to import the transactions from the store, I would need to
    build some sort of a connector. Does erpnext offer any sort of API?

  2. Related to the first question, I like how you have created
    templates for importing stocks, clients, etc. How would I go about
    importing sales transactions?

  3. How about workflow capabilities, i.e. approval process, or
    supervisor check required for new employees. To what extent does
    erpnext support this?

Thank you!

There is no direct API but many of the services are exposed via webservices. The client interacts with the server in JSON and the same can be used as an API - but again this is not documented.

You can connect via a cookie based authentication, as seen here


If you are really keen and have the time, I can guide you through the process and you can help us document it!

Importing transactions is tricky because there are multiple tables involved (parent, items, taxes), this is still possible via the Setup-> Import Data tool --- 

3. How about workflow capabilities, i.e. approval process, or

- There is a Save (draft) -> Submit process for all transactions. You can set separate Save and Submit rights to roles.
- You can set workflow rules around transactions by value.
- You can also set field-level permissions.


Thank you!

Does the feature you describe in #1 exist in the stable version of the
erp? I couldn’t find the file in the package I downloaded…
