Set ConnectWise Automate permissions

When setting permissions, you first need to set the appropriate plugin access level for your existing user classes. Then you set permissions for each of the classes for each user.

Set plugin permissions

Before your ConnectWise Automate users can gain access to your Auvik clients, you have to set plugin permissions on the appropriate user classes.

Follow the steps below to set the plugin permissions on the ConnectWise Automate Super Admin and Help Desk Users user classes. For the ConnectWise Automate Super Admin user class, access to the Auvik plugin is granted for both configuration and client and location access. For the ConnectWise Automate Help Desk Users user class, access to the Auvik plugin is restricted to client and location access only.

We’ll be modifying the existing ConnectWise Automate Super Admin user class and a non-ConnectWise Automate administrator class (help desk users, for example).

  1. From the navigation menu, click System, then Users and Contacts.
  2. Click User Class Manager.

  6. Click Save.

Repeat steps 5 through 10 for each user class that should have Auvik plugin access.

  1. Click Save.
  2. Close the ConnectWise Automate Control Center.

Configure the Auvik plugin

To configure the Auvik plugin, you need a valid Auvik user and the user’s API key.

NOTE: In this version of the integration, only a single Auvik user can be configured for the ConnectWise Automate plugin. If that Auvik user has read-only permissions in Auvik, every ConnectWise Automate user will have read-only permissions for Auvik through ConnectWise Automate. If the Auvik user has admin permissions, every ConnectWise Automate user will have admin permissions for Auvik through ConnectWise Automate.

Set the API user credentials

  1. Log into the ConnectWise Automate Control Center.
  2. From the navigation menu, click System, then Configuration.
  3. Click Dashboard.

  5. Paste the API key previously copied from Auvik for the user.
  6. Enter the domain for your parent (top-level) Auvik account.
  7. Click Test Credentials to make sure they’re working properly.

If the test connection fails, see How do I troubleshoot issues with my Auvik / ConnectWise Automate integration? for possible resolutions.

Client mapping

Complete the steps below for all clients and locations to be mapped with an Auvik client.

If you want, you can filter your list of ConnectWise Automate clients to show only a specific client’s associated locations.

The mapping of ConnectWise Automate clients and locations is based on:

  • Auvik MSP (multi-client) > ConnectWise Automate client
  • Auvik Client > ConnectWise Automate location

If you have multiple MSPs (multi-clients) associated to your main MSP account, be sure to select the appropriate Auvik MSP to be mapped to the ConnectWise Automate client. This ensures the correct list of Auvik clients displays for mapping the locations.

If you don’t see a list of your ConnectWise Automate clients and locations, see How do I troubleshoot issues with my Auvik / ConnectWise Automate integration? for possible resolutions.

  1. From the list of clients to be mapped, click the pencil for a client.
  2. From the list of your MSPs, select the appropriate MSP to be mapped. If you don’t see any MSPs listed, confirm the domain entered in the API User Credentials is for your main MSP domain.
  3. Click Save.

  1. From the client’s list of locations, click the pencil for a location.
  2. From the list of Auvik clients, select the appropriate client to be mapped to the location. If you don’t see the correct list of Auvik clients, confirm the MSP mapped to the ConnectWise Automate client is correct.
  3. Click Save.
