XpressDox provides a full integration with NetDocuments
There are a few steps to follow in order to save assembled documents to NetDocuments. This is an overview article; click on the links provided to access detailed step-by-step instructions.
OAuth 2.0 Authentication:
The integration makes use of OAuth 2.0 authentication, which you can read more about here. oAuth authentication allows a specific XpressDox user to act as a specific NetDocuments user. The XpressDox integration uses user accounts, and not a service account, thereby allowing your XpressDox account to impersonate your NetDocuments account.
Step 1: Add your XpressDox instance as an application within NetDocuments
Adding your XpressDox instance as an application within NetDocuments is only required if your XpressDox instance is self-hosted. If you use our XpressDox Cloud or the Desktop, then this is already done and you can move directly to step 2 in the process. For detailed step-by-step instructions on adding your XpressDox instance as an application, click here.
Step 2: Configure a Foreign File System
Now configure a Foreign File System in the Desktop product. If you use our XpressDox Cloud or Desktop, simply select your region. If self-hosted, select your region and provide the Client Id and Client Secret which you received when you added your application in Step 1.
