Integrations: Sharing Mortality Data With Third Parties Via API. 

Last updated Dec 4, 2018

EveryPig offers integrations with other third-party software solutions. We allow you to share your EveryPig mortality data via API (Application Programming Interface) with trusted third parties like MetaFarms. The following is an overview of how to set up an API connection to MetaFarms

1.  Find Integrations in Your Admin Panel

The "Integrations" tab is found under the "Preferences" section of the Admin Panel. 

Note: You must have an Admin level role to access the admin panel on EveryPig. If you need an Admin role, contact the person in your company responsible for setting up and managing EveryPig.

2. Enter Your MetaFarms Login Credentials

Enter your MetaFarms login credentials to connect to the MetaFarms API. These credentials are different from your usual MetaFarms Login credentials. Please contact MetaFarms for more information. 

Note: Your MetaFarms API credentials are different from your usual MetaFarms Login credentials. Please contact MetaFarms for more information.
Note: When activated, EveryPig will push mortality data to MetaFarms once daily after 12:00 AM.

3. Enter Your Mortality Reason Code

By default, EveryPig will use the MetaFarms Mortality Reason Code "1". We recommend you create a new Mortality Reason in MetaFarms, e.g., "EveryPig Import," then copy the new Reason Code in the above input box. This way you can easily see which mortality data in MetaFarms was imported via EveryPig.

4. Connect or Disconnect from the MetaFarms API

When you submit your credentials to MetaFarms, EveryPig will show confirmation that the connection was successful. If successful, EveryPig will push mortality data to MetaFarms once daily after 12:00 AM. 

Pro Tip: If you experience an error, please contact MetaFarms to ensure your API Username and Password are correct. 
Note: To remove your credentials and disconnect from the MetaFarms API click the ‘Reset’ button.
