Getting Started Guide

  • retag add tags

I'm just going to start off and say this is my first project using an API on a site and I'm having trouble on getting started.

First things first, I'm following along the best practice guide and I'm able to do the Sample Login Transaction in the Getting Started Section and see all the XML it says I should be seeing. The problem is, when I do the Sample GetMetadata Transactions section and put in the link into my browser, I get a 20036 Error code saying its a login error and I'm missing the RETS version. Since I logged in with the previous step shouldn't that not be a problem?

I'm sure there's a simple answer to this question and I'm just missing something. Thanks in advance for your help.

Just include the rets-version parameter on the login URL on the subsequent requests too.

So I'm adding:

This link doesn't product anything. I feel dumb but the guide doesn't make sense either. Thanks for your help in advance.

Thank you so much for this. You have no idea how long I've been trying to plug in the version into the link.
