IX Library Ecosystem
What Is the IX Library Ecosystem?
The IX Library Ecosystem is a collection of tools, documentation, and self-help guides that allow any partner to quickly—and easily—integrate with us. Everyone who supports the IX Library™ gains access to an ecosystem of resources.
See the table below to learn more about the IX Library Ecosystem, and the tools available to you as a publisher or Certified Adapter:
|Publishers||The owner of a website who uses the IX Library.|
A partner who has completed the Adapter Certification process. Certified Adapters fall into two categories:
|Published IX Library Source Code||
|IX Library Code of Conduct||We've published a Code of Conduct outlining our established rules and commitments for IX Library behavior and adapter participation.|
|Reporting in Domo||We provide publishers and Certified Adapters with Domo accounts, so you can pull detailed reports on a variety of metrics. Use this powerful reporting tool to know exactly how well your IX Library is performing or, if you're an adapter, how well you're performing in each configuration.|
|Integration Agreement||Each Certified Adapter signs an integration agreement. This agreement outlines the expectations between us and our partners: specifically, how our teams will work together.|
|Adapter Development Suite (ADS)||
ADS is a suite of tools we designed to streamline the Adapter Certification Process. It allows our partners to:
ADS features self-help guides and detailed instructions so a large portion of the process can be done independently.
|Mass Release Tool||
We've developed a Mass Release Tool to help us streamline releases by pushing adapter code updates to applicable publishers. When updates are ready, this tool allows us to quickly make all the changes at once.
Our mass launch schedule is every few weeks, and we always notify publishers before pushing the changes to their site.
|External Service Desk||
We've built a partner-facing ticketing system to centralize communication across different partners and IX teams. Powered by JIRA, this platform allows adapters to contact our teams directly and file a ticket for a new certification, or to request adapter updates.
|Knowledge Base||We've also built a Knowledge Base (KB) to help with all of your documentation needs. You may find the IX Library and Adapter Certification sections particularly useful.|
