This document shows how to configure OASIS to communicate with Flash. Agencies will only have access to manufacturers and brands that they are authorized to purchase. Quotes and orders for all manufacturers/brands should be transmitted electronically (Send Direct)
Parent Brand Entry
To access the Flash configuration in OASIS, Select manufacturers, then open the "Cooper" entry. This MUST be set up as a "Parent(shown)" entry. Check the "Merge Brands" check box. If the specialization is not already set to "Flash", then select "Flash" in the drop down list - otherwise press the "Configure Specialization" link.
When the configure link is pressed the Flash configuration window will appear.
First, obtain the IP address or the name of the Flash server. Then create a "URL" using the server information as shown below:
- US agents: https://api.3rdparty.flashpro.cooperlighting.com/
- Canadian agents: https://api.ca.agent.flashpro.cooperlighting.com/
Users should create a Manufacturer entry for each child brand. Select Cooper as the parent and click the "Merge Brands" check boxes for all brands that can be sent together in a single order.
"Cooper Core" Manufacturers
The following Cooper manufacturers are part of the core Cooper lines. They should each have their own manufacturer entry in OASIS (or one entry with two or more brands mapped to it, as with Halo (HALO-Rec and Halo-Trac). These should have Cooper set as the parent company and have the "Merge Brands" box checked.
Select "Cooper" in the field just below the URL (click the "..." button). Then under Brands map ONLY brands that correspond to the child manufacturer entry. For example, Halo-Trac and Halo-Rec should be mapped to one Halo manufacturer entry.

Non "Cooper Core" Manufacturers
The manufacturers in the list below are not part of the core Cooper lines and must be quoted and ordered independently in OASIS.

Notice in the screen shot "Ametrix" appears just below the URL and above the brands. This indicates to OASIS the Flash will treat the manufacturer independently.
