Configure your PIM API
#How to configure my PIM API?
Before setting up the Akeneo Connector for SFCC, you first need to generate a "client ID" and "secret" couple in the PIM to enable the API connection.
Please refer to our specific documentation to do so.
You will be given the following items:
- Your PIM URL (ex: https://mypim.cloud.akeneo.com)
- Your PIM API
- Your PIM user who will be dedicated to the use of the API (
Password). Make sure you save them as you'll need them later.
#How to configure the connector with my PIM API information?
In the connector configuration page, fill in the parameters below with the PIM information collected above:
|Connector parameter||PIM information|
|Akeneo Client ID||API Client ID|
|Akeneo Secret||API Secret|
|Akeneo Login||PIM user username|
|Akeneo Password||PIM user password|
|Akeneo Service General URL||PIM URL|
In the case of an Akeneo API unavailability, there is no automatic procedure to re-connect. However, the connector will try three times to reach the API before stopping.
