This article is for end users who already have a working integration with Commander and are ready to transition to Integration Builder. Following the instructions below in order will guide you through using your old Commander files with Integration Builder.

Note On Recreating Files
Integration Builder introduces many powerful new features, so it may be beneficial to revisit your approach to BarTender integration, however, you are not required to recreate or rebuild the integration because Integration Builder can still use your Commander files.


For more information on integration with BarTender 2016 please review the following resources:

Integrating with BarTender Integration Builder



Import Commander Task List Into Integration Builder

The following video will show you how to import a Commander Task List into Integration Builder, and save it as an Integration Builder file type.



Configure Permissions In Integration Builder

Print systems that communicate across networks commonly need elevated permissions in order to work correctly, so Commander may have been running under elevated permissions.  When transitioning from Commander to Integration Builder you will probably need to grant Integration Builder the same permissions you granted to Commander.

While permissions for Commander were set in Windows Services by running the Commander service under a specific Windows user account, permissions for Integration Builder are set directly in your integration file.

The following video will show you how to assign permissions to your Integration Builder file.



Test Integration Before Deploying To Production

Integration Builder allows you to test the integration for any errors prior to deploying it to production.

The following video will show you how to start your integration as a test.



Deploy And Manage Integrations

After the integration has been properly tested it is ready to be deployed to production.  All deployed integrations can be managed from Administration Console.

The following video will show you how to deploy your integration into production, and where you can manage your deployed integrations.
