    Integrating SDP MSP with Zoho apps


    To integrate SDP MSP with Zoho Applications,


    • Go to Admin >> Integrations >> Other Integrations.
    • In the Configuration Wizard, select a Product (Zoho CRM/Zoho Books/ Invoice) and a Module (Requesters/Accounts/Worklogs) you want to integrate.

    • In the Configure Auth token section, generate the Auth Token and Save it.
    • Provide the Organization ID (Only applicable for Zoho Books and Invoice).
    • Under Configure Fields for integration section,
      • If you have chosen the Requester/Account module, choose the fields to map between Zoho Applications and SDP MSP. Click Map More Fields option to configure mapping for other fields.


      • If you have chosen the Worklog module, follow these steps:
        • Select whether you want to export worklogs from Requests, Problems, Changes, and Projects.



        • Enter the Default Worklog type in ServiceDesk Plus MSP to be used for invoice addition in the integrated product. 



        • Specify whether the worklog time should be mentioned in Hours and Minutes or Minutes only.



        • Choose the date from which the worklogs should be synced.



        • Configure field mapping between the integrated product and SDP-MSP worklog by typing down the field from the integrated product in the description box and choosing the description variable from the list.


    • Select if the worklogs should be pushed only for closed requests/problems/changes/problems. Selecting no will push worklogs irrespective of the status.
    • Schedule the integration by setting the integration schedule either by hours or days. Click on Save.


    • The integration will be enabled and scheduled.
    • To disable integration, select the integrated product and the module and click on "Enabled", the integration will be disabled.

    Note : For the first time after saving the configuration, you will get an alert message saying "Some accounts are not mapped after initial Sync. Please click here to Sync".
    Please map the account details from this page to avoid any data mismatch. After this operation any account added in the ZOHO Apps, will be directly added to MSP SDP.


    Integration Sync information

    Accounts Sync

    • During sync, if the MSP SDP has the same account name as that of CRM's, then the CRM data will be overwritten in SDP MSP. Address will be overwritten in SDP MSP.
    • For the first time, any new account added from CRM, (which is not in MSP SDP) will be listed in the Action Page. You can map the account's details to the respective MSP SDP account from that page. It will get added/updated in the SDP MSP account. 
    • Once you have mapped a CRM account to SDP MSP, that account name will be removed from the SDP MSP mapping list in the Action Page. This is to make sure that the data which is mapped with SDP MSP and CRM is correct.

    Requesters Sync

    During contacts to requesters sync,

    • If the contact is not present in MSP SDP, then it will be added directly under the specific account.
    • If the contact's Email address is already mapped, then the data will be overwritten.
    • If the contact that is to be synced does not have an account name, then it will not be created in MSP SDP.
    • If the contact has an account name but no site associated with it, then a requester will be created with the default site of that particular account in SDP MSP.
