By: Platypus Billing System  09-12-2011

Platypus's flexible provisioning model allows it to integrate with almost any external system that provides an API via one of five methods within the client. These methods include:

  • HTTP
  • ODBC
  • Platypusd - Remote Command Line Execution on Unix or Windows
  • Local Scripting (VBScript/JavaScript)

Scripts for many popular systems have already been written by the Platypus team, including Control Panels, Mail Servers, FTP Servers, Radius Servers and more. A full list is found below.

Some integrations will require the installation of Platypusd. Platypusd allows the Platypus client to securely communicate with remote Unix and Windows systems in order to provision accounts and is used in conjunction with command line interfaces and/or scripts.
