If your SOAP URL is not listed, you will need to install the Tigerpaw Mobile API from the Tigerpaw Academy.  This version should match your version of Tigerpaw.

If you have Tigerpaw Unleashed (Hosted) The SOAP URL is shown under Web service API URL If the URL is not populated please contact Tigerpaw Support for assistance.

Sit back, have a coffee, and let our hamsters (or flamingos in this case) get to work synchronizing your data. You can close the Setup Wizard now if you like and we will email you when the synchronization is complete.

Note Depending on the account size; this sync could take 24 hours or more.

How to create a Tigerpaw REST API key
