Erste Schritte

Einrichtung

By searching “Connector 365 Setup” you can find the setup for the E-POST API, here you set all the necessary information to ensure that the App works without problems.

While the test mode is activated, no invoices are sent. Instead, the previously specified test mail will receive a notification

Set a Passwort

To set a password for the App, you should first make sure that the setup is completely filled in (except for the secret/password). After that you have to click on “Set password” in the setup. A new dialog will now open and at the same time the admin that was specified during the E-POST registration will receive an SMS with a PIN.

Enter the PIN in the corresponding field and confirm the dialog with OK. The password is now set and a secret is automatically generated.
