FAQ

What is the first thing to do to create the link between my software and Acomba X?

The first thing to do is to contact customer service to get your identification key. The key is needed to allow compatible software to interact with Acomba X.

To get the key, download the identification key request form and return the duly completed form to customerserviceqc@acceo.com.

Is software that is already configured for Acomba compatible with Acomba X?

First, you need to know that there is no longer any SDK for Acomba X and that communication is now made via SOAP services. You can therefore change SDK calls into SOAP calls services, but without one-on-one phone correspondence.

The Acomba GL Import file format is compatible with Acomba X, but we plan to make minor changes to it over time.

Finally, we offer training to help you to adapt your software to Acomba X.

Do we need to register for the program for software that already exists?

Registration is required if you want your solution to evolve within Acomba or Acomba X. Your solution will continue to work even if you are not registered, but it will no longer be displayed on our website.

Should I register now to adapt my solution to the Payroll module or can I wait for it to be released first?

We strongly recommend that you register now so that you can keep up on possible changes to the GL Import file and to have access to technical support.

Registration gives you the opportunity to actively participate in discussions on the developers forum and to share information with your fellow programmers.

Do I have to renew my subscription to the Acomba developers program every year?

Yes. The renewal is due every year on May 1. A reactivation charge of 25% of the subscription price is applied for each year of non-subscription, regardless of the number of days.

Can compatible software be integrated in the Acomba shell?

Compatible software cannot be integrated in the shell. However, an external application can subscribe to certain events (event aggregator), which gives the user the impression that the software is fully integrated.

You can get the Acomba X theme in order to give the windows of a compatible application the same appearance as those of Acomba X.

Should a developer with several programmers on his team get additional user licenses?

A developer with more than two users (developers) working simultaneously must purchase additional licenses.

For the cost of these licenses, contact customer service at 1 800 862-5922.

How do we get technical support?

Support for developers registered for the program is provided through the forum, by email or by phone at 1 800 862-5922.

SDK Acomba or Acomba X SOAP support: forum@acomba.com

ODBC for Acomba support: odbc@acomba.com

Where can I find literature?

Literature for Acomba and Acomba X is available on the forum. A subscription is required to access the forum.

Is the ADX import/export tool included in both program statuses?

Yes.

Can we continue selling ODBC?

You can sell ODBC with Acomba. However, when you migrate to Acomba X, the bridges and reports will have to be made again using the new tools available.

Can we continue to sell the Data Importer?

You can continue to sell the Data Importer for Acomba.

The Acomba X data importer exists, but it isn’t ready for sale yet. In its current form, it can only import data when a company is created.

If I don’t code in C#.NET, can my software still interact with Acomba X?

Yes. To do this, you must develop a REST service that will make the bridge between your application and the Acomba X SOAP.

We are currently developing a tool that will allow us to provide you with the REST service to interact with Acomba X.
