Quite a few of our customers want to associate multiple accounts with a single subscription. This allows multiple developers to have their own API key / login account, or maintain different accounts for different environments or processes.
Muhimbi fully supports this scenario, and even allows accounts for Muhimbi PDF Converter Services Online subscriptions (for Flow, Logic Apps, API access) to be associated with an existing Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online subscription. That way a single subscription covers our SharePoint Online App, Flow / Logic Apps as well as our REST API.
To associate an existing Muhimbi PDF Converter Online subscription with a new Muhimbi PDF Converter Services Online account, follow the steps below. Please note that the instructions for linking a Muhimbi PDF Converter for SharePoint Online subscription with another PDF Converter for SharePoint Online subscription are different, and can be found here.
- Create a Flow / Logic App as normal. The first time you add any of the 'Muhimbi' actions you will be asked to either log-in or register (choose the registration option). Alternatively, if you don't want to use Flow, e.g. because you need and API key, you can register here.
- Fill out the blanks and make sure that in the field asking for the optional existing subscription ID, you enter one of the following:
To link with an existing SharePoint Online subscription: The Tenancy ID of your SharePoint Online environment (the one associated with your existing Muhimbi subscription). For details about how to determine your Tenant ID, see this Knowledge Base article.
To link with an existing Services Online subscription: The subscription ID for the existing subscription. This is available from the confirmation email sent out when the existing subscription was first registered. Alternatively it can be request from the Muhimbi Support desk.
- Once the form has been filled out, an email will be sent to the person who is set up as the owner of the existing Muhimbi PDF Converter Online subscription (This person was designated when the subscription was first purchased). The owner will need to click the link in the email to approve the request.
- Once confirmed by the owner, an email will be sent to the address specified in step #2 above. This email also contains the API key that can be used when integrating with our API directly. Store it somewhere safe.
Before registering, please put some thought into the name / email address to use when filling out the form. We suggest using a generic name (e.g. MuhimbiAPI@yourorganisation.com). Please make sure this address can receive email and that the appropriate people have access to the emails.
Please keep in mind that any operations carried out via the linked subscription will count towards the monthly allotment of your main subscription.
