Advanced configuration

You can change the following options to fine-tune the synchronisation scheme even more on the Autotask configuration page.

Days before renewal

This determines the number of days that Automaker will look ahead for expirations. If an Autotask contract's end date falls within this amount of days, it will be renewed by pushing its end date forward one year.

Contract name

You can customize the format of the contract names. By default, we use the following format: %title% for %domain%

For example, if you have a G Suite Basic subscription for the domain, the contract title in Autotask will be: G Suite Basic for

You can edit this field to match your current naming conventions. You can use the following dynamic variables:

  • %domain%: Customer domain. This variable must always be present.
  • %title%: A descriptive title for the contract, generated by Automaker.

Default Contract Period

We try to determine the contract billing period based on the subscription information we receive from the vendor. If we are unable to determine this, as is the case with Microsoft CSP licenses, we will fall back to the globally configured period.

By default this is set to yearly. You can change this to monthly here.

"Reset contract end date for expired flexible subscriptions to the day they ended.

When Goolash Automaker creates a Flexible contract in Autotask, it will always set the end date to be one year from its start date. If the Flexible contract ends, this date will be left unchanged by default.

Check this box if you want Goolash Automaker to change the Autotask Contract’s end date to the day the Flexible subscription was stopped.
