I set up an integration user so that I could access the API with the proper security keys.
I saw in the Imagine 2016 video that there are some out of the box APIs to use and Swagger gives some technical details on constructs.
But I am a beginner at this.
I need some "how to" steps, in PHP code, for doing basic connectivity, like "Request all Items from the Item Table". And if I need to on the back end enable certain functions by editing some files, I need those steps outlined as well.
I have been unable to find this anywhere. All snippets and documentation assume that I know more than I do.
I was able to make minor edits to their example code in order to conduct a basic conversation with my sample data site. Since this is working with only a back end user name and password, the integration user and generated security keys are not involved. Hope to learn more about that concept soon.
//Authentication rest API magento2.Please change url accordingly your url
i've found very usefull for this https://www.getpostman.com/ that among other stuff ( like setting up the authorization need for magento) it shows you also the code generated for the call you are testing
