I saw in one of most amazing Jeff Bickart videos he was describing how he was making use of a custom connector to interface with hubspot from a sugar CRM module to sync data bi-directionaly.
Is this the best/fastest way to interface with an external webservice?
Was thinking could do the same in my situation where I would need to sync my custom module data with data from a really old and poorly documented SOAP webservice.
Not sure what's the best way to go about it.
1) Either create a custom sugar REST api endpoint that would communicate with the SOAP WS and have a button to call action either on the listview or record view of the custom module.
2) Create a custom connector as described here http://support.sugarcrm.com/Documentation/Sugar_Developer/Sugar_Developer_Guide_6.5/Application_Framework/Connectors/Exa… and implemented by Jeff Bickart in his HubSpot module that syncs data in real time.
Not sure how I would approach the second option as it's not thoroughly documented and could not find solid example or if it's even possible anymore in sugar7 ?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
