Appian Cloud Integration

This page applies to Appian Cloud only. It may not reflect the differences with Appian Government Cloud.

Appian provides different ways to integrate your applications with external systems.

Beyond assisting customers in the configuration of some of these integration points, changes to default product properties are not supported in Appian Cloud. Appian Cloud utilizes standard configuration settings that are the default for Appian.

Designers are required to design their applications to work within those specifications rather than requesting custom settings to circumvent sub optimal design patterns or poor performing system integrations. The only changes to settings allowed are those that are exposed via the web browser via the Admin Console

Integration Points

The following options are available for extending Appian to integrate with your systems and user environment.

Design Considerations

When integrating Appian Cloud with external systems, it is important to know which attributes can change in an Appian Cloud site without prior notice and what attributes remain constant for an Appian Cloud site. In order to implement a robust integration, customers should avoid dependencies on variable attributes.

Fixed Attributes

IP address of VPN Gateway

If a VPN gateway is configured for an Appian Cloud site, the IP address of each VPN gateway is fixed.

Site URL

The URL to access an Appian Cloud site will not change unless the change is exclusively requested by Appian Customers.

Variable Attributes

IP Addresses

Other than the IP address of the VPN gateway (if VPN is configured), all other IP addresses related to Appian Cloud (including email servers) are subject to change at any time and should not be directly referenced. DNS records should always be consulted to get the current IP addresses being used.

SSL Certificates

SSL certificates used for Appian Cloud sites are managed by Appian and renewed routinely. Systems integrating with Appian should not rely exclusively on cached certificates as it could lead to connectivity issues when a new SSL certificate gets deployed.
