Magento Core API Settings

The Magento Core API supports both SOAP and XML RPC protocols. The API is permission-based, and allows access to the Customer, Catalog, and Order modules of your store.

The WSDL (Web Services Description Language) definition that you create for your Magento Commerce API solution ism by default, WS-I compliant. This makes it possible to use tools that require a WS-I complaint WSDL definition for API integration. No additional settings are required. Use the following endpoint URL for all WSI-I APIs, and replace {site_url} with the store domain.

  • WS-I Endpoint URL

To change the general settings:

By default, the API default character set is UTF-8, and the timeout for client sessions is 3600 seconds. You can change the default settings through the system configuration of the store.

1. On the Admin menu, select System > Configuration. Then in the panel on the left under Services, select Magento Core API.
2. Click to expand the General Settings section. Then, do the following:
