To import transaction data from your GK Software point-of-sale (POS) system, you must enter the connection settings for the parser in Security Center.

Procedure

  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Expand the Transaction Finder plugin role, select the GK Software parser from the entity browser, and click the Properties tab.
    Transaction Finder plugin role - Properties tab for the GK Software parser showing the Authentication page.
  3. Log in to the parser configuration page using the username and password you defined during the parser installation.
    NOTE: If this is your first time logging in, your credentials will be accepted, encrypted, and saved.
  4. In the Server configuration section, enter the following:
    Authentication key
    For a local parser, the authentication key is automatically provided by the plugin. For a remote parser, click the Generate new button to generate an authentication key.
    Host
    The IP address or host name of the system that receives transactions.
    Port
    The port used by the plugin to receive data from the parser. Port 443 is used by default.
  5. In the Global configuration section, enter the following:
    Tenant ID
    Identifies the site of the deployment.
    Location ID
    The code used to define the location of the point-of-sale system.
    Include location in terminal ID
    Ensures that terminals across multiple stores are uniquely identified. Turn on Include location in terminal ID for the parser to add the location of the terminal to the transaction. This setting is required when the identifiers for terminals are reused across multiple locations. Example: Store01 has terminal01 and terminal02, and Store02 has terminal01 and teminal02.
    Timezone
    The time zone in which the point-of-sale system is located.
    Culture name
    The region and language used by the point-of-sale system.

  6. In the Parser configuration section, enter the following:
    Port
    The port used to receive packets from cash registers. Port 9050 is used by default.
    Time in UTC
    Turn this option ON if the time provided by the cash registers is in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). If local time is indicated, then the parser uses the time zone specified in the Global configuration section.
