API docs

A quick introduction to the entity content API

How to get started.

We use the Postman app to test the APIs. You can use this app, or any similar app to test the APIs before you start the implementation.


Authentication (JWT)

To get access to the content, you might have to authenticate yourself. This is how.

URL: /api/auth

Method: POST

Headers: content-type: application/json

Request-body, raw:

{"username":"[email protected]","password":"MyVerySecurePassword:)"}

 

The response will look something like this:

{   "token": "eyJ0eXAiOiJKV1QiLCJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJteW5hbWVAbXlkb21haW4uY29tIiwiZXhwIjoxNTg0OTk5NDQ1NDAwLCJleHBpcmVzIjoiMjMuMDMuMjAyMCAyMTozNzoyNSIsInJvbGUiOiJhZG1pbiIsImxhbmd1YWdlIjoiZW4iLCJuYW1lIjoiRmlyc3RuYW1lIExhc3RuYW1lIiwidXNlcmlkIjoxNDQ1LCJhdXRoIjoiNjE3N2NhYjk1ZGFhNHNkZmFkc2ZhZGZkZjIifQ.NSQWsRXdnJM0f429Ize8Ms35Se66enZOznX7bpFSVXE"}

You can decode the token at https://jwt.io if you are interested in what it contains.

From now on you can use this token to authenticate your API calls by including it as a Bearer token.

 


Getting content(items)

To start getting some content from the webpage it is easy to just use the search function. It is quite extensive, and versatile. You can select all or some fields from the item, and get one or more items at a time.

URL: /api/itemsearch

Method: POST

Headers: content-type: application/json

Request-body, raw (example with some search parameters):

{
    "ProductSKUs":["ABC123","DEF456"],
    language : "en",
    templatefields: ["title","author", "customfield"],
    "orderby":"str05"
}

All available search parameters:

  • int? CategoryId 
  • int? ItemId 
  • int? MenuItemId 
  • int? OriginalItemId 
  • int? Page (default: 1)
  • int? PageSize  (default: 50)
  • int? ParentItemId 
  • int? TemplateId 
  • int SkipItems  (default: 0)
  • string CategoryName
  • string Language 
  • string OrderBy 
  • string ProductSKU 
  • string SearchString 
  • string Tags 
  • string TemplateName
  • string Where 
  • List<string> TemplateFields 
  • List<int> CategoryIds
  • List<int> TemplateIds
  • bool? OnlyItemIds (default: false)
  • bool? SelectDisctinct (default: false)
  • bool? isDebug (default: false)

When you do a search, you will also receive meta-data that gives you feedback on your query. It might help you understand, but if the query fails, you can activate the debug-mode (isDebug). Then the query is saved to the error log inside entity. You find it in the developer section at the bottom of the sidebar. Just start playing, and you will find a good solution for your project. 

The meta-data will look something like this:

    "meta": {
        "itemcount": 1,
        "page": 1,
        "pagecount": 1,
        "itemsperpage": 50,
        "searchparameters": {
            "ProductSKUs": [
                "10109364"
            ],
            "Page": 1,
            "PageSize": 50,
            "SkipItems": 0,
            "Language": "no",
            "OrderBy": "str05",
            "OnlyItemIds": false,
            "TemplateFields": [
                "title",
                "articleno",
                "str05"
            ]
        },
        "querytime": 9417
    },
