Add Products to Cloud Zoo

Once you are registered as an issuer, you can add, view, and modify products in Cloud Zoo using the endpoints described below.

Endpoint Conventions

Unless noted, the following conventions apply to all product endpoints available to registered issuers in Cloud Zoo.

Endpoint Location

All requests should be made to the following location: https://cloudzoo.rhino3d.com/v1.

JSON

All payload to and from endpoints happens in JSON format. To make this explicit, every response to an endpoint will have the header Content-Type: application/json present in the HTTPS response.

Authentication

All endpoints in Cloud Zoo or on the issuer use Basic Authentication. To receive a successful response from an endpoint, you must include an Authorization header like so:

Authorization: Basic BASE64ENCODEDSTRING

where BASE64ENCODEDSTRING is a base64 encoded string containing your issuer id and your issuer secret:

	BASE64ENCODEDSTRING = b64.encode(issuer_id + ":" + issuer_secret)

Non-successful responses

All unsuccessful responses from endpoints will have an HTTP status code greater or equal to 400. If the status code is also less than 500, the payload will include the following JSON:

{
    "Error": "SomeErrorCode"
	"Description": "A description about the error message",
	"Details": "More details about the error"
}
  • The Error field contains a specific error code that can be used by the issuer to recognize a specific error, such as incorrect credentials.
  • The Description field contains a description of the error.
  • The Details field contains details of the error, possibly suggesting how to fix it.

If the status code is greater or equal to 500, the response may not be JSON and may be empty.

Endpoints
