Summary

This API provides capabilities to retrieve and add Behavior “Actions” defined for a given brand.

General Technical Requirements

The following technical requirements apply to all requests for this API.

HTTP Headers

The HTTP header must contain the following elements:

x-omeda-appid
a unique id provided to you by Omeda to access your data. The request will fail without a valid id.
content-type
a content type supported by this resource. See Supported Content Types for more details. If omitted, the default content type is application/json.

Content Type

If omitted, the default content type is application/json.

JSON
application/json

JSON is the preferred data exchange format, because it is lightweight and, in most cases, faster to process and utilizes less bandwidth. There are many available open-source JSON libraries available. See json.org for details.

Supported HTTP Methods

There are two HTTP methods supported:

  1. POST : for creating a new Behavior Action
  2. PUT : for updating a Behavior Action

Field Definition

The following tables describe the data elements present on the requests and responses from the API. In addition to the below elements, a SubmissionId element will also be returned with all responses. This is a unique identifier for the web services response. It can be used to cross-reference the response in Omeda’s database.

Behavior Action Elements

Element Name Data Type Description
Id Integer Behavior Action Identifier
Description String Description of the Behavior Action.
StatusCode Integer 1 = Active, 0 = Inactive

Create Individual Behavior Action

An HTTP POST creates a new Behavior Action for a given brand. See W3C’s POST specs for details.

Request URI

For Production: https://ows.omeda.com/webservices/rest/brand/{brandAbbreviation}/behavior/action/*

For Testing: https://ows.omedastaging.com/webservices/rest/brand/{brandAbbreviation}/behavior/action/*

Request

POST requests, by their nature, will not have an Id element, since POST is reserved for creating new elements, and the service governs the allocation of ids. There is no need to send in a StatusCode in the request since the service assumes the Behavior Action you are creating will be active.

Example Request

{ 
   "Description":"Attended Seminar"
}

Response – Success

Upon successful creation of a Behavior Action, an HTTP 200 will be issued. The response has a ResponseInfo element with one sub-element, a Id element, which is the Id for the Behavior Action.

HTTP Response Codes

200 OK The request has succeeded.

Example Response

  "SubmissionId" : "C95AE90C-BEC6-41F2-91E2-2BA9168D1D1F",
