Dynamics GP Setup

StarShip allows you to connect directly to your Dynamics GP company information. For each company, you can assign a specific interface that includes your customized field mapping and data translations.

Add the Dynamics GP Company

Follow these instructions to add your company to StarShip. StarShip allows you to import and ship with more than one set of company information. If you want to connect more than one company, you must complete this process for each company.

  1. From the Setup menu, select Source Interfaces > Microsoft Dynamics GP (your version).
  2. Click the New Company button.
  3. Select the StarShip Connector, which is the component that controls StarShip’s connection to Dynamics GP.

    For “Share Company connection between multiple users”: If you have a limited number of licenses or limited parallel connections, you may want to check this setting. It allows users to share one company connection instead of occupying one source interface seat for each user. You can also set the number of connections to be shared.

  4. Type in the Server name, leaving the database field set to DYNAMICS, and enter your authentication information. You can choose between Windows or SQL Server Authentication; if you select SQL Server, enter the User Name and Password.

    In order for StarShip to connect to your Dynamics GP company :

    • the user/SQL account used will need SQL read permissions for the DYNAMICS (Dynamics system) database;
    • the user/SQL account used will need SQL read/write permissions for each Dynamics company database.

  5. Confirm that the company information is correct and click the Finish button.
