How to create Magento integration?
To create a Magento integration, you need to follow these steps.
Step 1: Create a skeletal module
To build a module, you need:
- Create the file structure of the module. The integration module should be placed under <base_dir>/app/code/app/code/<vendor_name>/<module_name>.
Also create etc, etc/integration, and Setup subdirectories under <base_dir>/app/code/<vendor_name>/<module_name>
- Define configuration file for your module. Change to the etc directory, and create the module.xml file, so we have etc/module.xml. Then, specify values for the attributes: name and set_up version.
- Add your module’s composer.json file. Create a composer.json file for your module. Put the composer.json file in the module-<module_name> directory.
- Create a registration.php file. The registration.php must be placed in the module’s root directory. Place the composer.json file in the module-<module_name> directory.
- Create an install class. Change directories to your Setup directory, and create an InstallData.php file.
Step 2: Create files for the integration
- Pre-configure the integration: To enable the integration to be automatically pre-configured with default values, update the config.xml file in the etc/integration directory.
Step 3: Install your module
- Run this command to update the database schema and data.
- Run this command to generate the new code.
- Run this command to clean the cache.
Step 4: Check your integration
Log in to the Admin, then navigate to System > Extensions > Integrations.
Step 5: Integrate with your application
Create two pages on your application to handle OAuth communications before activating your integrations.
- The location defined in the identity_link_url parameter must point to a page that can handle login requests.
- The location defined in the endpoint_url parameter (Callback URL in Admin) must be able to process OAuth token exchanges.
Apop-up login page for the third-party application appears when a merchant clicks the Activate button in Admin. Commerce sends values for oauth_consumer_key and success_call_back. Use the success_call_back parameter to return control back to Commerce.
The callback page must be able to perform these tasks:
- Receive an initial HTTPS POST that Commerce sends when the merchant activates integration.
- Ask for a request token. Use this API to get a request token:
- Parse the request token response, which contains an oauth_token and oauth_token_secret.
- Ask for an access token. Use this API to get a request token:
- Parse the access token response which contains an oauth_token and oauth_token_secret. These values will be different from those provided in the request token response.
- Save the access token and other OAuth parameters, which must be specified in the Authorization header in each call to Commerce.
