We are working hard to make updates to the Shop and Account Management portal.

Please note that many of these changes will roll out this Saturday, June 1st and will require downtime. We are working to ensure minimal disruption for our eOne community and really appreciate your patience as we push out these changes. Please reach out to sales@eonesolutions.com with any questions.

Creating a REST Service Definition

Creating a REST Service Definition

  • From the main Navigation Menu, select Maintenance>>REST Services. 

  • On the Rest Services page, click the Create Rest Service button. 
  • The Service section allows a name and an image to be set for the REST Connector.  This name and image will be used throughout the UI to identify this service. 
  • The Settings section will store the information for the Base URL, Request Method, Response Type, Body Type and Authentication Method. 
    • The Base url should be the portion of the url that is static for the service. 
    • The Request method should be the default verb for getting data from an endpoint.  This can be overridden on each endpoint individually when needed. 
    • The Response Type should be set to JSON or XML, based on the payload type for the service. 
    • The Body Type should be set to one of JSON, Text, XML, or URL-Encoded-Form; depending on the payload body for the service. 
    • The Authentication Method should be set to one of Basic, Exchange Token, None, or OAuth2; based on the service.  Exchange Token and OAuth2 will add a separate settings section on the rest service navigation on the left. 
  • The Date/time section allows the Date Format to be specified. The 4 types are Custom, Epoch Milliseconds, Epoch Seconds, or ISO 8601. Epoch time is displayed as the amount of time that has elapsed since January 1, 1970. 
    • Epoch Milliseconds follows a format of: 1583340906149 
    • Epoch Seconds follows a format of: 1583340920 
    • ISO 8601 follows a format of: YYYY-MM-DDThh:mm:ssTZD 
    • Custom allows the format to be defined, using the standard .Net datetime formatting. 
  • The main settings can now be saved, and a connection can be set up for services using Basic or no authentication.
