Coupa Integration Setup Guide

🕙  1 minute read

Coupa is a platform for business spend management. Coupa provides visibly, control, and compliance for business spending.

This integration enables all Coupa actions within Catalytic, including our Coupa: Look up a user and Coupa: Look up a purchase order action.

Integrations can only be set up by Admin users and are enabled per team. See our General Integration Information page for an overview of integrations and some recommendations when configuring new integrations.

Required Setup

Configuring with Coupa is simple and only requires your Coupa subdomain, username and an API key. The API key authenticates the integration with Catalytic and can be created by an admin within your Coupa instance.

How to create a Coupa API Key

From your Coupa instance,

  1. Go to Setup > Company Setup > API Keys
    screen readers look here
  2. Select Create
  3. Configure the API key based on your individual needs.

Coupa will create an API key which you can copy and paste into your Coupa integration setup. For more information and details on creating an API Key, see Coupa’s API Key Security documentation.
