Web service methods reference

Using the API

All methods are to be called through the /api/ gateway. For instance, http://www.maboutique.com/api/carriers

Most methods can be accessed in a REST manner, with the 5 main HTTP request methods: HEAD, GET, POST, PUT, DELETE.
The only exceptions are:

  • search: can only be accessed using GET and HEAD.
  • stock_movements: cannot be accessed with PUT.

All methods have two optional types, which are simply to be added at the end of the URL:

  • ?blank: returns a blank XML tree of the chosen object.
  • ?synopsis: returns a blank XML tree of the chosen object, with the format that is expected for each value (see below) and specific indicators (ie, if the node is required, and its maximum size in number of characters).
