Accessing API with B1if


Hi Experts,

I am attempting to make basic API calls to Magento API using REST protocol through B1if. I have tried a couple of ways from previously attended B1if training but don’t seem to be getting anywhere.

This is what I have done so far:

1. Created HTTP SLD connected successfully to Magento using basic authentication.

2. Scenario Step to make REST calls to Magento API to get list of customers. (not yet working)

3. Scenario Step to INSERT customer details in B1. (not yet working)

I am trying to establish basic communication. In my training (By Yatsea Li), we passed our parameters through the URL (using POST) and into B1 to add a new BP. But now I am doing the opposite. I want to make a REST API call from B1if to fetch customers from Magento and push them into SAP.

I’m not sure what to use as inbound and outbound. Can spomeone please point me in the right direction?

I am after a simple way to generate API XML calls through B1if. Once I am able to do a proof-of-concept with Magento, I will move on to eBay.

Thank you!

Ray Mirza.
