Buildium Marketplace partners connect to your Buildium account and access specific types of data so that you don't have to manage two separate sets of information. Marketplace partners can either View data (data entered in Buildium is pushed into the partner's app or service) or Edit or Delete data (changes made in the partner's app or service are reflected in your Buildium account, automatically).

It's important to know how your integration connects in case you need to troubleshoot an issue when something doesn't look right.


Obligo is able to View the following:

  • Accounting > General Ledger Accounts and Transactions
  • Rentals > Rental properties and units, Rental Owners, Leases, Lease transactions, Tenants, and Outstanding Balances. 

If any of the information in your Obligo account related to these data types doesn't look right to you, double-check that this information is entered correctly in Buildium.  


Obligo is able to Edit the following:

  • Rentals > Leases, Lease transactions.


Obligo is not able to Delete any data in your Buildium account at this time.
