Importing Projects from Deltek Vantagepoint

As of Argos 8.0.5 we support importing projects from Deltek Vantagepoint. In order to setup the import you'll need your Vantagepoint API Url, Database Name, API Client ID/Consumer Key, API Client Secret/Secret, Username and Password. In this article we'll be walking you through where to gather that information. 

**Please note that some Deltek Vantagepoint versions describe the API "Client ID" as "Consumer Key" and list the "Client Secret" as simply "Secret", so you will see both interchangeable terms throughout this guide.**

Gathering the Required Information

  1. Go to your Vantagepoint Web Application. Here you'll want to copy the URL of the login page. It will generally be along the lines of We're going to use this URL for the connector.
  2. Login and go to Utilities > Integrations > API Authorization. If this link does not show up for you then you'll need to talk to your Vantagepoint Administrator to give you access to it or to take care of the next steps.
  3. If you have any other software that uses your Vantagepoint API that you'll want to skip this step. Click the Generate Secret button. This will generate your Client Secret (also called just "Secret") for you.
  4. Copy the Database, Client ID/Consumer ID and Client Secret/Secret from this page. You'll need all of this information for our connector.
