One native integration that can be set up within Hudu is NinjaOne RMM.
Before setting up your NinjaOne integration, please read over our Understanding Integrations article to learn basic concepts and useful tips.
In order to set up an integration with NinjaOne, you will need:
  • Access to retrieve NinjaOne API credentials.
  • Admin or super-admin user role within Hudu.

    At any time, you can come back to your Hudu admin area >> Integrations >> NinjaOne to make changes to the integration.

Integration Features

Hudu's integration with NinjaOne RMM allows you to sync over:

  • Organizations.
    • Create client spaces within Hudu directly from Ninja companies, or seamlessly merge them into existing (already-created) client spaces.
  • Devices.
    • Pull device information from NinjaOne; sorted into asset layouts based on set sort rules and your primary sync location(s).

    Use our new Hudu Assist browser extension feature to bring the power of the Hudu interface into the tools your team is already using. For more information, visit our Hudu Assist article!

What Hudu needs from NinjaOne

  • Client ID.
  • Client Secret.




Enabling Integrations

Integrations can be enabled at any point during your Hudu environment testing and/or during production. Integrations can be merged into your existing documentation based on set rules; providing the ability to start with integration setup, or easily connect them at a later date.
To enable the NinjaOne integration:
  • Navigate to your Hudu admin area >> Integrations.
  • Select NinjaOne from the list.

    If you're running on a Hudu version before, you'll need to select create integration.

    Ninja recently changed to the V2 version of their API. If you were using Hudu and Ninja together before Hudu, you will need to migrate.

In order to switch, you will need to delete your existing sync rules, create a new set of keys (following the below picture), and then re-set up your sync rules. Existing devices will be kept.


Obtaining the NinjaOne Information

  • Login to NinjaRMM and click on Administration on the sidebar.
  • On the left-hand sidebar, click Apps.
  • Select API
  • Click Client App IDs >> Add. Fill the fields in as shown.

    Redirect URI is not required but will show required until you un-click the 'authorization code' checkbox. Click the 'client credentials box' instead.


  • Copy the Client ID and Client Secret credentials into Hudu.
    • The secret key credential opens in a new window; only visible one time.
    • The client ID can be found in the list view of applications in Ninja after closing the client secret window.

    The Client ID is NOT the name of the application that you designated earlier; this is provided directly by Ninja.

  • Select either the European, Oceania or Canadian region (if this applies to you).

    If you select a region when not required, the test connection will fail. If your connection test is not connecting, consider checking to see if this option was enabled.

  • Save the settings.

    Make sure to test the integration for a successful connection before continuing; do not continue on until you see a connection successful message display.

  • Start the sync. After inputting all settings and ensuring the connection was successful; start the sync to push initial data to Hudu from NinjaOne (this is required before moving on).


Matching Companies

Before your companies (and their corresponding data) from NinjaOne can be brought into Hudu, they must first be matched to companies that either already exist within your Hudu environment; OR to companies that you create now.

    Hudu recommends matching one company first, for testing purposes, to ensure that your information comes over correctly.

  • The first time your integration connection runs successfully, it will attempt to bring in companies from Ninja; these are then added to the Matched Companies List of that integration.
    • Navigate to the Hudu admin area >> Integrations >> and find NinjaOne from the list. Click on it.
    • It should now have a button that says Match Companies.
    • Go through the list of companies and either bulk create/match all OR decide to:
      • Match the company to an existing (already created) client in Hudu;
      • Create a matched client within Hudu from a Ninja company;
      • Leave unmatched, company (and corresponding data) will not be created/brought into Hudu.
  • Once you have matched your companies, you must re-run the integration import to fill in all the data for the newly matched/created companies.



Other Options

  • Choose Skip Importing Devices if you'd like to skip devices from being brought into Hudu.



Sort Rules

Sort rules allow you to select which device types (from Ninja) will be mapped into which asset layouts (within Hudu). They allow you to specify certain "rules" for asset types as to where they get placed. Once an initial sync has run, navigate back to the Ninja Integration overview page and select Edit Settings to add Sort Rules. 
The asset layouts that you're choosing to sort into can be created beforehand (Hudu admin area >> Asset Layouts; ensure that they're marked active) OR you can create new asset layouts here.


  • Save your settings and stop/start your integration sync again to reflect your changes.



How often do integrations sync?

Answer: Native integrations will automatically re-sync (update) every 3 hours.
You can also use either the global or the card-specific re-sync features to refresh native integration syncs at any point.

Why is my integration taking a long time to finish?

Answer: If the NinjaOne sync has been loading for a significant amount of time (it can take up to 10 minutes), follow the steps below:

    • Test the connection to ensure Hudu and NinjaOne are communicating correctly.
    • Verify your NinjaOne credentials.
    • Refresh the page (while a sync is actively running).
    • Stop the sync and restart the sync.
Accidentally deleted an integration card; how do I get this back?

Answer: It should appear on subsequent re-syncs. If it is still not appearing, ensure that it has not been archived; and still exists in your sort rules.

Notes: Active integrations sync automatically every 3 hours; manual re-syncs can be performed either within an integrations’ settings page or by clicking the top right re-sync button.
