JSON API 🆕
Indexing API v2 brings in JSON support to index the products. Following are a few key concepts for the API:
- RESTful HTTP Approach: The Indexing API is built on the principles of Representational State Transfer (REST). This means it leverages standard HTTP methods for communication. You can perform operations like adding, updating, or deleting catalog items, making integrating with your existing systems easy.
- Asynchronous and Batch Processing: The API operates asynchronously and in batches. When you initiate changes to your catalog using the API, it creates a job for each action. The jobs are executed in asynchronous and distributed ways to achieve scale and performance. This job-based approach allows us to manage and optimize the processing of a large number of catalog updates efficiently.
- Security Measures: Klevu's Indexing API prioritizes the security of catalog updates. To submit data, you must generate a token using your secret key. This two-step verification process ensures that only authorized users can change the catalog. It's a critical security measure to protect your valuable data.
In summary, Klevu's Indexing API offers a versatile and secure way to manage your store catalog, and it does so with a RESTful, asynchronous, and batch-oriented approach. By incorporating job monitoring and a stringent security process, it becomes a valuable asset for e-commerce merchants using Klevu's product discovery suite.
