Setting up the Synnex Provider, Provider Accounts, and subscriptions
Setting up this Provider is only applicable to Partners whose provider is Synnex.
Note: Synnex does not have Azure consumption integration or Agreements integration. Currently, Synnex only integrates Microsoft License based subscriptions.
- Create a nonhuman Work 365 integration account to be used for the integration with Work 365.
- Submit the following email request to AskStellr@synnex.com and Stellr@synnex.com:
- We would like to request access to the CSP API to be enabled for [list integration account username]. Our Synnex Account Number is [list account number used for CSP transactions].
- Then the SYNNEX support team will enable API access for the user account.
- Ensure the Work 365 integration account has the correct permissions assigned in the Synnex portal. The integration account must have the “Stellar Cloud Super” permissions assigned in the Synnex portal.
- Set up the Synnex Provider: Go to Work 365 ➤ Provider ➤ +New
- Add the name
- Internal Name: Work365.Provider.SynnexCspProvider
- Add the User Name for the integration account (email ID).
- Add the Password for the integration account.
- Add the Synnex Reseller Number for your organization
- Add the Synnex Reseller Relationship URL
- Work 365 button dropdown ➤ Verify Connectivity
- Once verified ➤ Sync Provider Accounts
These provider accounts are all the customer accounts on your Synnex Portal
- Each account will need a unique CRM account (there cannot be 1 CRM account for multiple Provider Accounts).
- All the Synnex subscriptions will sync to Work 365 automatically through a backend job by the next day. Subscriptions can also be manually synced on at the Billing Contract level.
- Once the subscriptions are synced, ensure the Billing Contract, Customer, and pricing data are all accurate.
- Of the old subscriptions with a Manual Synnex provider, reassign the License change log history to the automatic Synnex subscription. This way the license change log history is still active with the automatic subscription.
- Deactivate the manual Synnex subscriptions as these are no longer needed. Refer to deactivating subscriptions for guidance.
