Tally Connector Setup
Tally Connector Setup
The Tally connector allows you to integrate Tally into your data flow by pushing or pulling data from Tally. Follow the steps below to connect ArcESB to Tally.
Establish a Connection
To allow ArcESB to use data from Tally, you must first establish a connection using login credentials. You can create the connection from either the connector configuration pane or the Connections tab of the Settings page.
- The login process is only required the first time the connection is created.
- Connections to Tally can be re-used across multiple Tally connectors.
From the Connector Configuration Pane
Drag the Tally connector into an ArcESB flow and give it a name.
In the Connector Configuration pane, click + Create next to the Connection drop-down list.
The Add Connection modal appears. Provide the requested information:
- Name — The static name of the connection. Set this as desired.
- Type — This is always set to Tally.
- URL — The URL of the Tally server.
If needed, click Advanced to open the drop-down menu of advanced connection settings. These should not be needed in most cases.
Click Test Connection to ensure that ArcESB can connect to Tally with the provided information. If an error occurs, check all fields and try again.
Click Add Connection to finalize the connection.
In the Connection drop-down list of the connector configuration pane, select the newly-created connection.
Click Save Changes.
From the Settings Page
Open the Settings page, and then click the Connections tab.
Click Add to open the Connection Type modal.
Click Tally, then click Next.
Continue from step 3 above for Connection Configuration Pane.
Select an Action
After establishing a connection to Tally, you must choose the action that the Tally connector will perform. The table below outlines each action and where it belongs in an ArcESB flow.
|Action||Description||Position in Flow|
|Lookup||Retrieves a value from Tally and inserts that value into an already-existing Arc message in the flow.
The Lookup Query determines what value the connector will retrieve from Tally. It should be formatted as a SQL query against the Tally tables.
|Select||Retrieves data from Tally and brings it into ArcESB.
You can use the Filter panel to add filters to the Select. These filters function similarly to WHERE clauses in SQL.
|Execute Stored Procedures||Treats data coming into the connector as input for a stored procedure, and then passes the result down the flow.
You can click the Show Sample Data button to provide sample inputs to the selected Stored Procedure and preview the results.
|Export Report||Retrieves a report from Tally and places it in the Receive folder of the connector.||Beginning or Middle|
