The Client Delivery Method is one of the most important screens in LeadExec. From this part of the system, you have complete control over the technical way your leads are delivered to your buyers.

On this screen, you will give a description of the Delivery Method. Select your lead type as well.

Select the type of delivery method you want to use. Some we offer include:

  • HTTP Post - Delivers to Another Software solution

  • XML / JSON - Delivers to Another Software solution

  • SOAP POST - Delivers to Another Software solution

  • SMS Text Messaging

  • Email - Email Batch, Email with a Link to Client Portal, or Email with the lead details in the body of the email.

Once you select Create Delivery Method you will get a modal for entering the basic information about this Delivery.

Once you have entered the basic information, you will then get the Delivery Method Details with several options for your Lead Delivery Method.

From the General Tab, you can provide a name for this Delivery Method, the Lead Type, and if you want to run in a live Production Environment or Test Environment.

Next, you will want to select the URL Endpoint from the Details screen.

From this selection, you can pick the Method, which includes

Post, Get, Patch,

Delivery Day Schedule – Use this feature to set a schedule for your clients. For example, they only accept leads Monday through Friday.

Moving forward with our methods, we must now input our delivery URL settings.

In order for a POST or any lead to deliver out to a system, a delivery URL is required.

Note: Only use the test URL if you are given a staging environment. If the In Testing option is checked, our system will use the test URL provided to deliver leads.

Fields:

  • Content Type – Set the content type of your delivery. By default most HTTP POSTs can use the default option shown. In case you need to change the type to XML/Text content, click the dropdown to change.

  • Timeout – You can set a timeout on your clients so you can ensure that if a client takes more than X seconds to respond the delivery will fail and move onto your next client.

  • Authentication Types – Basic, Digest, Bearer Token, and OAuth 2.0

  • Basic – Allows you to specify username and password for basic authentication types.

  • Digest – Allows you to specify username and password for digest authentication types.

  • Bearer Token – Allows you to specify a token as well as the authentication prefix.

  • OAuth 2 – Provides the ability to authenticate with an OAuth server using one of the following grant types: Client Credentials, Password Authorization, Code. Note: If the authorization server returns an instance_url property. Use [instance_url] placeholder in the delivery address. This will instruct LeadExec to parse and retrieve the instance_url property and inject it into the delivery address when sending the request. This placeholder should come before the rest of the URL. For example, If the authorization server returned “instance_url: ‘https://leads.leadexec.net’” if you were to specify “[instance_url]/processor/insert/general” it would translate to “https://leads.leadexec.net/processor/insert/general”.

  • Custom Header Attributes – These attributes are used to define custom fields. More often than not they are used for SOAP Actions.

Field Mappings

Field mappings tab.

Field mappings are where you begin assigning your lead values, to the values of your CRM provider. For example:

XML Schema

XML schema tab.

After field mappings, if you are doing an XML POST you will have to input your schema into the following XML Schema tab. Simply copy and paste the schema into this.

To connect data, select your field mapping, and place the field in between the nodes. For example, the first name field mapping will be placed in between the first name XML node.
