Overview

Yellow Dog currently interfaces with Magento via a one way sync that pulls sales data from Magento to Yellow Dog on an hourly basis.

Requirements

To sync with Magento, we will require:

  • Magento User Name with Administrator rights
  • API Key (this can be created by the website admin)
  • SOAP/XML-RPC User with correct Role assigned (see below for setup instructions)
  • WEB URL (will look something like this: http://www.yourwebsite.com/index.php/api/v2_soap/index/)

How to set up a SOAP/XML-RPC User and Role

Create a Role:

Navigate to System --> Web Service --> SOAP/XML-RPC Roles and create a new role with Retrieve Order Info access only.

If pushing on hands into Magento:

Create a User:

Navigate to System --> Web Service --> SOAP/XML-RPC Users. Be sure to go to the User Role tab and select the role that was just created.
