Setup and Installation
Please note that all information entered during installation can be edited at any time after setup. For more details refer to the Application Management article here. Before beginning the installation process in Incident IQ, you will first need to set up the PowerSchool Rest API plug-in to give iiQ read-only access to your PowerSchool user data. You can find instructions on how to do so here.
Once you have set up the Rest API plug-in, select Incident IQ Apps > Browse on the left navigation bar.
Click on the PowerSchool App and then select Install to begin.
Step one of the installation process simply provides an overview of what the PowerSchool Integration will install into Incident IQ. Select Continue once you are ready to proceed to step two.
The part of step two will ask you to confirm that the PowerSchool Rest API plug-in has been set up for Incident IQ. If this plug-in has not been setup up yet, you can find instructions on how to do so here. When you are ready to proceed select Completed.
You will now need to enter your PowerSchool:
- Url – Enter /ws/v1 at the end of your PowerSchool URL. (ie powerschool.admin/ws/v1)
- Consumer key
- Consumer secret
Each of these fields must be filled out in order to continue. Once you have completed this section select Validate & Save to proceed.
In the next step, you will be asked to select a default location for PowerSchool users. This is the location that accounts imported from PowerSchool are assigned when they do not match your location mappings. When you are ready to proceed select Continue.
Before moving on to step three, you may make changes to any section by clicking on any of the checked settings. When you are ready to proceed select Continue.
Step three allows you to set whether PowerSchool is available for ticket submission. By default, PowerSchool is enabled, but if you do not wish to utilize the ticketing functionality you can simply uncheck the model activation box. When you are ready to proceed select Continue.
At this time you will be asked to review all of the changes that are about to be made to your Incident IQ site. Before moving on please keep in mind that after the installation process begins it cannot be stopped. Once you have completed your review select Install App to begin the integration process.
Once the installation process has completed you can now access the app management page to make any additional setting changes, as well as run your first data sync.
