Delete purchase orders created via API

May 21st, 2020

Given the unfortunate context the world is facing, a numerous amount of purchase orders have to be canceled!

Therefore, we have now extended Inspectorio SIGHT API with a new method “Delete Purchase Orders” that takes the PO Number as a parameter. Note that you can only delete purchase orders which have been created via API, and which are not referenced in any existing booking in your account.

All the details on how to use this method are available in the API Reference section under the “Purchase Order” resource.

Transfer your measurement charts data with upper and lower tolerances!

May 15th, 2020

Inspectorio SIGHT Platform now supports the ability to determine points of measurement with different lower and upper tolerances!

We have reflected this enhancement as well in Inspectorio SIGHT File Transfer by releasing a new file format with Tolerance Upper and Tolerance Lower attributes.

You will find the updated samples in the guide Get Started with File Transfer.

Please contact support@inspectorio.com in order to activate this ability in your organization’s account of Inspectorio to fully leverage this feature.

CAPA Resource - Inspectorio SIGHT API!

February 4th, 2020

We have added the CAPA Resource on the standard Inspectorio SIGHT API to expose the ability to GET CAPA. You can now retrieve new data related to CAPA by using sight API.

For more details, please refer to the specifications here: (https://developers.inspectorio.com/sight/api-reference/#tag/CAPA)

Lab Testing Report Integration is ready for the Inspectorio Sight API!

November 26th, 2019

Allowing multiple Product Line IDs per PO for Inspectorio SIGHT File Transfer

November 14th, 2019

This new enhancement provides you with even more flexibility on how you send PO data into Inspectorio SIGHT.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us at support@inspectorio.com

Webhooks are here for the Inspectorio SIGHT API!

November 8th, 2019

Log in to account of Inspectorio SIGHT Platform as an Admin or Account Owner in order to access the new webhooks feature within the Configuration tab in the header.

You can create webhooks to receive real-time HTTP notifications of changes to specific events that happen in your platform. This enables you to set up automatic responses to Inspectorio SIGHT events.

We have implemented the first version of webhooks on Inspectorio SIGHT with one event in Inspection component: Report - An Inspection report has been uploaded. We will release more events for webhooks in future updates.

A webhook is a way to scan your data in Inspectorio to see if there is any data change on the platform. You will still need to get your report by API. But at the same time, you can track when an event occurs by using 1 single webhook.

You can also consult our new Webhooks guide for further explanation: https://developers.inspectorio.com/sight/guides/webhooks/

New fields on Booking, Assignment, and Report resources - Inspectorio SIGHT API

In addition, we also added a new field to the Booking and Assignment resources for Get and List methods.

Using remark, you can now retrieve any comment in the Remark field of your bookings and assignments via Inspectorio SIGHT API.

For more details, please refer to the specifications here: (https://developers.inspectorio.com/sight/api-reference/).

October 1th, 2019

You can now use an API Key to make the integration between Inspectorio APIs and your server easier.

Inspectorio’s API Keys are unique, random, and non-guessable. API Keys that are generated by Inspectorio use alphanumeric, special characters and they don’t expire unless removed.

You manage your API Keys within the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform, accessible via web browser. An Admin or Account Owner of your organization on the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform has access to create and manage API Keys under your configuration tab.

You can also consult our new API key guide in API authentication section.

Our Developer Portal has been redesigned from top to bottom to be more modern, clean, and simple for users like you. It is now easier for you to find information.

Note that we have updated the URLs of some pages. The new homepage for Inspectorio SIGHT is https://developers.inspectorio.com/sight/

If you have any questions or comments about the changes, please feel free to reach out to support@inspectorio.com.

New shareToIds field – Inspectorio SIGHT API

August 30, 2019

We have added the optional shareToIds field to the Purchase Order resource of the standard Inspectorio SIGHT API. This includes List Purchase Orders, Create Purchase Order, Get Purchase Order, and Update Purchase Order. By adding one or more Local Organization IDs into this new shareToIds field, you can share your PO directly to these other organizations. The shareToIds field can only be used to share your POs with other associated organizations; you can request to associate to another organization within the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform. The shareToIds field can be blank.

For example, suppose that you want to integrate a PO that has two Vendors. Now, you can add one of the Vendor’s Local Organization ID into the vendorId field and also add the other Vendor’s Local Organization ID into the shareToIds field. Both organizations will be able to see the PO when they log into the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform.

New Excel formats enabled for Inspectorio SIGHT File Transfer

July 19, 2019

We have expanded our Inspectorio SIGHT File Transfer support for measurement charts (POMs) and purchase orders (POs) to include Excel format (extensions .xls and .xlsx) in addition to the currently supported .csv format.

New poType field and Brand Resource - Inspectorio SIGHT API

June 27, 2019

We have added the Brand Resource to the standard Inspectorio SIGHT API. This includes GET List Brands, POST Create Brand, DELETE Delete Brand, GET Get Brand, and PUT Update Brand. Now, you can pre-configure your list of Brands via API prior to sending Purchase Orders. Please note that you will manage the list one Brand per API request, instead of sending the entire list in one request.

New Endpoint URLs - Inspectorio SIGHT API

June 20, 2019

We have updated the URLs of our Inspectorio SIGHT API endpoints. In order to expand our product suite effectively, we have renamed ALL existing API endpoints to be specific to Inspectorio SIGHT, our quality control and compliance product.

To give you time to accommodate the change affecting every Inspectorio SIGHT API resource, we will support the current Inspectorio SIGHT API endpoint URLs for only 6 more months, until December 17th, 2019. At this date, we will only accept the new Inspectorio SIGHT API endpoint URLs moving forward.

You can see all of the new Production and Pre-Production URLs on the Inspectorio SIGHT API Reference page on Inspectorio Developers here. Note that we have deprecated Staging API endpoints because Staging is not used.

Here is what’s changing for Production URLs: The prefix https://integration-api.inspectorio.com/ has changed to https://sight.inspectorio.com/api/

Here is what’s changing for Pre-Production URLs: The prefix https://integration-pre.saas.inspectorio.com/ has changed to https://sight-pre.inspectorio.com/api/

Points of Measurement (POM) Error Messages - Inspectorio SIGHT File Transfer

May 14, 2019

Hi everyone,

We have updated the File Transfer Errors page by adding error codes and descriptions for points of measurement (POM) data integration through File Transfer. Now, when you upload POMs through File Transfer Error Messages, you’ll receive error codes that you can look up for more information.

You will see these new codes and descriptions via email if you are configured to receive your organization’s File Transfer notifications.

These codes and descriptions will enable you to troubleshoot quickly and independently to resolve File Transfer Integration issues for POMs.

Integration Center - New Inspectorio SIGHT Platform Feature

April 25, 2019

Hi everyone, we have released a feature in the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform: the Integration Center! The Integration Center allows users within your organization to view the logs of your organization’s integration history. No action is needed by integration developers to see the Integration Center logs.

For this first release, users within the web platform can see logs of purchase order integration. This feature makes it easier for users to troubleshoot data discrepancy issues that arise in their purchase orders. They will be able to work on solutions proactively to get the data they need!

Users can find the Integration Center within the Inspectorio SIGHT Platform, under their Profile menu in the top right corner.

File Transfer Validation Logic for Points of Measurement

April 5, 2019

Hi everyone, we are planning to release enhancements to the File Transfer service for Points of Measurement (POM) logic. These will make sure that POM data is structured correctly when using File Transfer integration. These changes have minimal impact on existing logic.

We plan to release these validation enhancements by Monday, April 22, 2019 to give time for any adjustments or clarifications.

This logic refers to the “Multiple Style POM” file format, a sample of which you can find here.

  1. Within each Style, each POM Code must still be unique. To further ensure this data consistency, we have added validations to check that within each Style, each POM Code must contain the same Caption, Tolerance, Size, and Unit in every row within which it appears. Please note that if the same POM Code appears in more than one Style, then the POM Code information can be different from Style to Style.

  2. We are now supporting many special characters and multiple languages within POM data. However, we will not support #, ?, nor %.

  3. Missing column headers, as well as blank or invalid fields, will throw errors.

File Transfer Validation Logic for Purchase Orders

March 23, 2019

We are planning to release four enhancements to the File Transfer service Purchase Order validation logic. These enhancements will ensure data quality and integrity across the inspection flow and throughout the entire platform network.

To give you ample time to adjust your data integration if necessary, we plan to release these validation enhancements by Monday, April 8th, 2019.

  1. Shipment_Date: This field can be blank, but if it is not blank, then it must follow DateTime format: for example, 2019-06-03T20:15:01Z.
  2. Packing_Type: The available options for this field (previously “SOLID” and “ASSORTMENT”) are now case insensitive, so “Solid” and “Assortment” are now acceptable.
  3. Packing_Type_ID: This must have the same Order_Carton_Quantity value for every line in a PO.
  4. For Solid cartons, Case_Pack and Order_Quantity fields, and for Assortment cartons, Configuration, Order_Carton_Quantity fields: If used, these four fields must be an Integer greater than or equal to 1. For example, “1”, “1.0”, and “2” are ok, but “0”, “1.1” and “-2” are not ok.
    • Solid Case_Pack must be Integer >= 1
    • Solid Order_Quantity must be Integer >= 1
    • Assortment Configuration must be Integer >= 1
    • Assortment Order_Carton_Quantity must be Integer >= 1

Removing the Associated Organization Resource - Inspectorio SIGHT API

March 21, 2019

We have removed the Associated Organization resource from the Inspectorio SIGHT API service, so it is no longer possible to associate organizations together via integration. The associations among organizations will now be handled exclusively within the web platform user interface by Account Owners and Admins of your account.

Inspectorio Inspectorio SIGHT is a network platform with more and more active partners. Consolidating the responsibility of associating organizations ensures that data sharing complies with users’ expectations.

Allowing Multiple Product Categories per Style - File Transfer

September 6, 2018

We have removed the File Transfer validation to now allow more than one product category ID for one style in a purchase order. Previously, each style within a PO was required to have one product category only.

Case Pack Support - Inspectorio SIGHT API

July 9, 2018

We have included a new optional field in the Purchase Order method called casePackQuantity. The Case Pack Quantity refers to the number of items per carton in a PO.
The inclusion of this information at the time of creating POs allows vendors and/or factories submitting bookings to input the correct Case Pack Quantity at the moment of booking. The mobile version of this feature will allow us to optimize sample selection and provide auditor users with more nuanced information at the time of inspection to verify, for example, the number of available cartons at the factory.

The casePackQuantity field can be found in the Purchase Order method under solids which itself is under styles. Find the full request body schema for creating a Purchase Order here.
