How to Integrate with Entrata
Step 1: Find a mutual client
To integrate with Entrata, a mutual client must request API access on your behalf. Note that this client must also agree to allow you to work with them to build & test your Entrata integration.
Once you've found the mutual client, they should contact their Entrata account manager to start the onboarding process.
Step 2: Submit online application
Entrata will then share an application form for you to complete. The application will ask questions about your business.
Step 3: Sign the commercial agreement
Entrata will send an API agreement for you to sign if there are no issues with your application.
Step 4: Build the integration
Once the commercial agreement is signed, you will receive API credentials and can start building the integration.
One important thing to note: Entrata does not provide a dedicated sandbox environment for integration development. Integration development happens within a client environment.
That's everything you need to know to get started with an Entrata API integration!
