Superuser: Create a Spectrum Microservice Account In Procore

This is a DRAFT. Customer Success/Support should work with the ERP Integrations team during the release. 


To create a dedicated user account in Procore for the Spectrum® Construction Software Microservice.


To give the Spectrum Microservice the ability to perform actions in Procore, you must create a dedicated user account for it. This account gives the microservice the appropriate permissions to perform the actions it requires to complete data exchanges between Procore and Spectrum. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permission to the company's Directory tool to add an account
    • 'Admin' level permission to the project's Directory tool to add an account
  • The service account must be granted 'Admin' permissions in Procore in order to manage the transfer of data between Procore and Spectrum.

    • Email Address. Enter a valid email address for the account (Note: You must create a dedicated, fully-qualified email address on your company's domain for this account). 
    • Permission Template. Select 'Apply Permission Template Later' from the drop-down list. 
  4. Click Create.
