      Does the Web Client support integration manager or is that only available with the Rich Client?

      Hi David

      It is not Dexterity based and so will not work on the web client.

      David is correct, but I do have one stipulation to add.

      If you’re using the eConnect adapter within Integration Manager you can run it on a local workstation while using the Web Client as long as you’re able to communicate with the SQL Server.  eConnect interacts with the SQL tables directly, so there’s no need for it to take over a local Dynamics.exe process on your machine.  It’s for that same reason that you don’t need to have a desktop client instance open when using IM with the eConnect adapter.

      If you’re using the Web Client from home or outside of your network this would mean that you likely need to do something like VPN into your network to be able to communicate with the SQL Server.

      If you have a need for integration manager your best bet is to go with a published app on a terminal server.  If you still have access to remote app it works beautifully (why is Microsoft getting rid of that?!??). 
      What I’ve seen some people do is place links to excel and windows explorer in the shortcuts bar on the left in GP so users who need to manipulate the files prior to running the integration have access to the file system before they run the integration in a remote app environment.  
      As others have mentioned the web client does not offer any integration tools but you can run integration manager as a stand alone app if you use the econnect adapters and the user has connectivity to the GP server.  
      Scribe runs in the cloud and can import data to a GP server that has the connector installed but that requires a lot of programming and setup before making it a truly single click experience to run the integration for your user.

      Unfortunately, no.  That’s one of the primary reasons we aren’t interested in the web client – we use integrations everywhere.  I’m betting that it won’t be for several years before they figure something out – it isn’t a priority right now because they still have to make the web client support multiple open windows – another major drawback at the present time.
