The SimpleConsign API can allow your web site or any third party application to access your SimpleConsign data.
What You Can Do with the API
- List and Search Inventory
- Submit Online Transactions and Online Returns
Generating Your API Key
Before you can use the API you have to create an API key inside your SimpleConsign account in your Location Settings.
If you have multiple locations, you must generate an API key for each individual location.
HTTP REST API
All requests are made by doing an HTTP GET/POST to the appropriate URL. The request should contain the required HTTP parameters. The results of the request are returned in JSON format.
HTTP Response Codes
The API may return more HTTP response codes than these, but these are likely the ones you will run into.
|Code||Meaning||What You Should Do|
|200||Success||Parse and use the data that was returned from SimpleConsign|
|400||Bad Request||There is something wrong with the parameters that you sent in. You need to adjust the request so that the SimpleConsign API can understand your request. This can also be caused by not setting the Accepts and Content-Type headers to application/json.|
|404||Resource not Found||It is likely that you have typed in an incorrect API endpoint.|
|500||Internal Server Error||Likely this is our fault, and you should email firstname.lastname@example.org to get the issue resolved.|
|503||Server at Capacity||Wait and make the request at a later time while we resolve our capacity issues.|
You are only allowed to make up to 100 API requests in a 10 minute period. If you need to make more requests, please contact us.
