CSD Connector

APIs are “a set of subroutine definitions, protocols, and tools for building software and applications.” (Wikipedia). CSD Web Services are “a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network.” (W3C). They have even been called Web APIs by some.

In 2019, Grey Wolf started the development of CSD Connector for integration with CloudSuite Distribution. Over time, those Web Services have grown and matured into over 50 connections in the “pool.”

CloudSuite Distribution is an Infor hosted ERP.  Since Infor does not allow any third party software on their hosted server, Grey Wolf is required to use Infor’s ION APIs.  The CSD Web Services provided by Grey Wolf become the interface to those APIs.

SX Connector is a web service that is consumed by your code or by a Grey Wolf application.

The complete listing of the Web Services Description Language (WSDL), Extensible Markup Language (XML) or JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) definitions are below.

lite version

  • APIs on premise
  • Web Services interface
  • API Key(s) for security
  • Intuitive naming
  • Used for Keystone® and Partner Connect®

full version

  • Exact same code as Lite Version
  • Full access to all Web Services
  • Used for anything BUT Keystone® and Partner Connect®

The Lite version is used for any Grey Wolf application (like Altitude, Partner Connect, etc).  The Full version is used for applications that are third party or custom in-house applications.


Basically, you will need the Full Version for anything but Grey Wolf applications.
