The Passthrough Connector Project

While the new Deltek Vantagepoint REST API is secure and convenient, it is sometimes a hassle to set up a valid connection that include the Bearer token and takes care of all the authentication details.

It’s especially tricky when you want to pull data into some data tools like Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerBI or other reporting applications.

This is why I started this new PassThrough Connector project that will allow you to define as many connections to different  Deltek Vantagepoint endpoints and then communicate with them via an API Token that can be passed along with the standard REST call.

  • The Trouble with Job Costing
    Over many years and many discussions I found that Deltek Vision’s concept of job costing is still a stumbling stone for many accounting specialist, especially when it comes to explain this to their accountant at year end. The main issue with this is probably because most consultants will tell these firms to offset the values in the job cost credit account with actual payroll cost and it will never tie out. Let me try to fix this later in this post. But first…
  • A New Online Tool To Get Started With Vision API
    Over the years I found that people always had a hard time getting started with Deltek Vision’s API. I do admit, it probably has a lot to do with the message structures the API is expecting.
