Add a Client ID for the Open Commerce API

Account administrators can use Account Manager to create client IDs for the Open Commerce API.

The Open Commerce API requires that each client have a client ID. The client must append this ID to the URLs they use to interact with the Open Commerce API.

To add a client ID, perform the following steps:

  1. Log into Account Manager.
  2. Click API Client.

    The API Clients page opens, showing a list of client IDs and, for each ID, a related display name. The display name is a human readable value that identifies the client.

  3. Click Add API Client.

    The Add API Client page opens.

  4. In the Display Name field, enter the display name of the client.
  5. Click Add.

    Account Manager creates a client ID for the display name you provided.

  6. Click Add.

    The API Clients page opens, showing a list of client IDs and, for each ID, a related display name. You can verify that a client ID was generated for the display name you provided. By default, the client ID is enabled. You also can disable the client ID. See Enable and Disable a Client ID for the Open Commerce API.
