Exciting News: A New Integration Plugin for Pipedrive CRM
We're thrilled to announce a newly updated integration plugin with Pipedrive CRM. This replaces the current core plugin which is to be removed in Mautic 5.0.
The new plugin represents a major change to cover the API deprecation announced by Pipedrive in November, 2022. It allows for seamless integration and opens up new opportunities for our users, and has been written using the updated and more robust Integration Framework for Mautic plugin development
Pipedrive original communication
Most Pipedrive API users should have been receiving the following original message since the API started to drop requests in December 2022.
We have detected that one of your API integrations is still using endpoint(s) GET /persons/find, which has/have been deprecated since March 31, 2021. We will deactivate these endpoints in three intermediary stages over the next two months. * Starting from December 13, 2022, 10% of requests to the deprecated endpoints will start failing. * Starting from January 5, 2023, 50% of requests to the deprecated endpoints will start failing. * Starting from February 6, 2023, the endpoints will no longer work at all.
Impact on current core Mautic plugin
Mautic Community users currently using the existing plugin will have seen the integration stop working from February 6, 2023 concerning the synchronization of contacts (persons).
Knowing this, the Mautic Community Product Team has decided to remove the existing plugin from Mautic core on the next major version, Mautic 5.
How to install the new plugin
To install the plugin, follow the instructions on the public repository holding the code which is made available under an Open Source license. You will find two options to install the plugin; using composer, or downloading and installing manually the plugin in your Mautic installation.
Migration: the process we suggest you to follow
- Prepare and configure your new plugin
- Update your forms, campaigns and point trigger actions
- Disable the old plugin
- Fully enable the new plugin
Prepare and configure your new plugin
You can find the Plugin configurations under Configuration > Plugins > Pipedrive 2 plugin. This is the new plugin you will use for your Pipedrive integration.
Follow the instructions from the readme of the plugin to enable the features you like and authenticate your Pipedrive account.
Update your forms, campaigns and point trigger
Once your plugin is installed and enabled, if you use any form, campaign or point trigger to push contacts to your Pipedrive integration, you have to delete the previous actions and use the new action provided by the new plugin.
Disable old plugin
It’s time to say goodbye to the old integration ⚰️
- In Configuration > Plugins > Pipedrive, disable the plugin
- In your Pipedrive configuration, delete any Webhook actions configured
- Remove the commands (CRON jobs) of the old plugin
Fully enable new plugin
The show must go on! 🚀
After setting up the plugin configuration in the user interface, you must enable the commands (CRON job) according to the synchronization you expect.
