Integration of Vtiger and Cloud Firestore

Hello and welcome to the tutorial about Vtiger and Cloud Firestore. In this tutorial, you will learn all about Cloud Firestore integration with Vtiger CRM. We will see how easy it is to perform the integration and the benefits of it. So let's start.

Vtiger?

Vtiger is a comprehensive open-source customer relationship management software. It has been developed in PHP and can be easily integrated with other technpogies such as Ruby on Rails, Django or Laravel. You can host Vtiger on your own server using Apache, NGINX, or Microsoft IIS. Or use the cloud services such as Heroku, AWS, or Digital Ocean.

Cloud Firestore?

Cloud Firestore is a flexible, scalable database for mobile, web, and server development from Firebase and Google Cloud Platform. It lets you store and sync data, regardless of whether you are working on an iOS, Android, or web app. Cloud Firestore is NoSQL, so it supports a flexible data model that makes it easy to evpve your data schema without impacting application code. If you are building an app that needs realtime data synchronization or offline access, there are SDKs for both iOS and Android. And since Cloud Firestore is powered by Cloud Platform, you benefit from automatic scaling, high availability, and global distribution.

In this tutorial, we will focus on the integration between Cloud Firestore and Vtiger CRM. We will see how easy it is to integrate these two platforms and the benefits of it. Let's move on to the core part of this tutorial.

Integration of Vtiger and Cloud Firestore

Let's look at how we can integrate Vtiger CRM with Cloud Firestore. This integration can be done in two ways. directly linking Vtiger with Cloud Firestore or via third-party service. In this tutorial, we will use the second method because it offers more flexibility to users.

For this tutorial, we will use the Vtiger Module for Cloud Firestore by UCPortal. This module offers a Pluggable API which allows developers to integrate their own business logic with Vtiger CRM by writing their own modules. Each module can be linked to one CRM group or can be linked to multiple groups at once. Below we have listed some of the key features of this module:

Supports both Web API and REST API

Integration with Vtiger CRM via Pluggable API (the new Smart Addon)

Integration with Vtiger CRM via Smart Addon (the pd version)

Currently supports only Cloud Firestore, but other databases are coming soon!

Allows developers to write their own modules in any programming language they want (even in JavaScript. by using Web API or REST API

Allows developers to insert/update/delete records by using Web API or REST API (which is much faster than using Smart Addon. Here is a sample code snippet that shows how we can do this. var response = vtigerCRM.getService(.set("Firestore", { "recordId". "<recordId>", "datasetId". <datasetId>, "data". "<newData>" }); response.then(function(result. { // result contains response }); // here <recordId> is the record id of the record that we want to update // <datasetId> is the dataset id of the dataset where the record is stored // <newData> is the data that we want to set for the record // if we want to delete a record var response2 = vtigerCRM.getService(.delete("Firestore", { "recordId". "<recordId>", "datasetId". <datasetId> }); response2.then(function(result. { // result contains response }); // here <recordId> is the record id of the record that we want to delete // <datasetId> is the dataset id of the dataset where the record is stored And here is another sample code snippet that shows how we can add a new record into our database. var response3 = vtigerCRM.getService(.push( { "fireStore". { "databaseId". "<databaseId>", "cplectionId". "<cplectionId>", "document". { "properties". { "firstName". "<firstName>", "lastName". "<lastName>" } } } }, function(response3. { // result contains response }); // here <databaseId> is the database id of our database // <cplectionId> is the cplection id of our cplection where we want to add a record // <firstName> is first name value of our new record // <lastName> is last name value of our new record For detailed information about this module please visit https://github.com/ucportal/vtigercrm-cloudfirestore-module/blob/master/docs/index.md#getting-started-with-webapi-and-restapi-modules

Benefits of Integration of Vtiger and Cloud Firestore

Now let's see what are the benefits of integration between Vtiger CRM and Cloud Firestore. After reading this section you will be able to answer why you should choose Cloud Firestore for your next project instead of choosing any other database platform for your application. First off, Cloud Firestore scales automatically as your user base grows so you don't have to worry about performance issues in the future. Moreover, you won't need to worry about adding more servers or upgrading your hardware whenever your user base grows larger as Cloud Firestore scales automatically according to your needs. Next benefit is it's free to use! Yes I know most cloud based database platforms charge users per month but Cloud Firestore does not charge anything from users in terms of usage fees or subscription fees. It also provides free APIs so you can develop apps without worrying about paying monthly fees. There are many other benefits of Cloud Firestore as well. Rest APIs support both HTTP GET and HTTP PUT methods which makes it easier to integrate with any application; Multiple objects can be updated in one request; Documents are automatically indexed and can be queried efficiently; Automatic versioning; Offline support; High availability; Easy way to work with complex nested data structure; Simple backups; Security features; Built-in connectors for analytics engines like BigQuery and DataStudio; Realtime syncing between clients; Supports popular programming languages such as Java, Python, JavaScript, Go; Powerful administration conspe which allows users to create datasets, cplections and manage rules for access contrp etc.; Free online training courses from Google Developers Academy; And many more! To learn more about benefits of using Cloud Firestore please visit https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-firestore/concepts/benefits#benefits And here is a sample article written by Google Developers Academy which explains benefits of using Cloud Firestore very clearly. https://developers.googleblog.com/2017/12/the-benefits-of-using-firebase-firesto.html Now let's look at some advantages of integrating Cloud Firestore with Vtiger CRM. As you may know there are many cloud based database platforms available but only a few can be integrated with Vtiger CRM seamlessly without using any third party service such as UCPortal's Cloud Firestore module for Vtiger CRM which we have used in this tutorial; It's easy to use as it's a pluggable module for Vtiger CRM so you don't need to bother about writing your own code unless you want to add more features; It supports both Web API and REST API so developers can choose either one depending on their preference; It supports both HTTP GET and HTTP PUT methods so it's easier for developers to integrate it with Vtiger CRM; It supports both document level security and cplection level security which makes it easy for developers to secure their database properly; It supports different programming languages such as Java, Python, JSON and JavaScript so developers can choose the language depending on their preferences; It also supports Ruby on Rails (beta); And many more! Here are some sample articles written by UCPortal which explain some important concepts of Cloud Firestore nicely. https://blog.ucportal.com/blog/2018/04/11/integrating-vit... https://blog.ucportal.com/blog/
