Bromcom: How to set up integration

This guide walks you through setting up Bromcom integration on SchoolCloud Parents Evening.

What details do I need to set up Bromcom integration?

In order to set up Bromcom integration, you'll need the following information:

  • Your Bromcom site ID
  • Your Bromcom server URL
  • The username and password of a newly created System User in Bromcom that has the following Third Party permissions enabled:
    • CollectionAssociates
    • CollectionExecutives
    • Collections
    • Emails
    • People
    • PersonTelephones
    • Staff
    • StudentContacts
    • SubjectClasses
    • Subjects
    • Students

If your "Lawful basis for data processing" (in the Bromcom Administration Defaults section) setting is set to "Consent", please make sure that Teachers, Contacts and Students have the "Data Processing Consent Granted" box ticked in Bromcom. 

If you need help with any of this, please see Bromcom's How to Manage Third Party Supplier’s API Access Permissions For Bromcom MIS guide. 

Please note: We do not require write back permissions, so you can skip step 8 of this guide. 

Once you have completed the above return to your system and enter your new username and password (either in the  Getting Started Wizard or in Settings > Data Input Source) along with any other details the page requires.
