Higher Logic Thrive Marketing Professional (Thrive Marketing Professional) can work directly with clients that have admin permissions in MemberSuite. Because Thrive Marketing Professional uses the MemberSuite SOAP API, no additional configuration is needed from MemberSuite.
There are four required steps to connect Thrive Marketing Professional and MemberSuite. In MemberSuite, you'll need to:
- Create an API User
- Create an Access Key for the API User
- Capture the Access Key
- Capture the Association ID and Enable API Access from the Association Settings
*Log in to MemberSuite as an Admin User in order to complete the steps below
