Connecting to Amazon's WMS API with the API Connector

Hello,

I am trying to create an api connector in my app for Amazon’s WMS API and I have hit a wall.

Calls to the MWS API are sent as a HTTP Post and the URL string for the call must be HmacSHA256 signed (using your secret key from Amazon so Amazon can identify you) and the signature for that string must be appended to the URL otherwise the call will fail. Is this something we can do with Bubble? I can’t see how this can be done without coding it. Here is a link to what I am referring: http://docs.developer.amazonservices.com/en_US/dev_guide/DG_SigningQueryRequest.html

Similarly the URL string for the call needs to include a timestamp which must be a dateTime object. Further details here: http://docs.developer.amazonservices.com/en_US/dev_guide/DG_Timestamps.html.

It would be great to be able to get over this otherwise the API will be unusable.

Thanks.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for pointing this out. It appears Pat got this figured out with Blockspring. Will reach out to him to see if he is willing to share the solution.

Cheers,

Elvis.

Hello @bicharri,

I’m hitting the exact same wall as you described and I was wondering if you’ve been able to figure it out since then? If so, if you’d be wiling to help me out I’d greatly appreciate it!

Thanks,
Larry
