Kandji 

The Kandji and Asset Panda integration allows you to both import and update devices shared between the accounts.

 

NOTE: Kandji is a third-party application and Asset Panda does not control updates made by Kandji. As a result, your Kandji screens and options may vary from those you see in our examples below. See Kandji's support site for more information.

 

This guide will take you through the setup to successfully integrate your accounts:

 

 

Kandji API Credentials

1. Log into your Kandji account, and then select Settings.

2. Select the Access tab.

 

 

3. Scroll down to the API Token section, and then select Add Token to create a new API token.

 

 

4. Enter your preferred token Name.

5. Enter a Description for your token, and then click Create

 

 

Your token displays.

 

6. Click the visibility symbol (located within the Token field) to view the actual token and to copy and paste to a .txt file for later use (you'll need it again in the Asset Panda and Kandji Integration section), or click Copy Token to copy the token to your clipboard.

 

 

NOTE: You will not be able to see your token details again so make certain to perform one of the options in step #6. 

 

7. Check the box to acknowledge that you will not be able to view your token details again, and then click Next.

8. Click Configure to manage the permissions for your token. (You can also select Skip to configure them at a later time.)

 

 

The next thing you'll need to do is grab your organization's API URL, as you'll need this in the Asset Panda and Kandji Integration section below.

 

9. Select Settings, and then select your Access tab (once again). 

 

 

10. Scroll down to the API Token section, and then copy and paste your token into your .txt file. 

 

NOTE: Include the forward slash (/) at the end of the API Token URL, or it will not work correctly.

 

 

11. Proceed to the next section to complete your integration.
