Note: Before we get started, please contact your customer success manager at Pure360 and request a system login. A system login is a specially created, secure login that has unique features enabling it to connect with the API
This getting started guide is designed to aid in understanding the key components and concepts of this API and is categorised into the following areas:
- What is the difference between this API and standard SOAP?
- Why is this so?
- Here you'll find a link to our WSDL (web service definition language) describing our service
Introduction to Beans
- What do we mean by beans?
- How do we store beans?
- What are the types of bean?
Requests and Responses
- Dissecting a request through the API
- Dissecting a response returned from the API
- How these are structured?
Anatomy of a Session
- Pulling theory together
- Creating a new list (XML example)
- A must read for demonstrating an entire process
Authentication is handled via specially designed system login. The combination of username and password is used during a login request to create a temporary contextId that binds a session together between a login request and a logout request. The password runs through a secure encryption algorithm, and the contextId produced is a unique encrypted key itself.
