The purpose of this guide is to get you developing Ackroo applications quickly. Please take a few minutes to read each section carefully.
Your developer account identifies you as a developer of Ackroo applications. The applications you register and provision allow an Ackroo merchant to "install" and authorize these applications to invoke the Ackroo API on their behalf. The API is an interface to the merchant's data; therefore, any application demanding access to this data must first be granted access by the merchant.
Get started by configuring your application as a Sandbox app to become familiar with the API and the process by which your application becomes authorized to operate on behalf of an Ackroo merchant. You will be able to acquire access tokens from your sandbox applications without needing the consent of an Ackroo merchant.
To successfully develop and install your application with Ackroo API, there are 3 steps:
- Create an application on the dashboard
- Write the code for your application; it will have to know how to get an OAuth access token as described in OAuth Authentication section.
- Get Authorized by a live Ackroo Merchant to install your application.
