Establishing Connection

Skyvia supports both Magento 1 and Magento 2. They provide different connection options.

Getting Credentials

Both for Magento 1 and Magento 2 you need to enter Domain. This is the address of the Magento service. It can be just the address of the Magento store, like http://192.168.10.197/ or http://magento235.yourdomain.com/. Depending on Magento configuration, you may need to add magento or magento/index.php to it: http://magento.yourdomain.com/magento/ or http://magento.yourdomain.com/magento/index.php. Or you may configure Magento to use a different path.

Magento 1

For connecting to Magento 1, you need the API Key. The API Key that you need is specified when creating or editing a SOAP/XML-RPC user in Magento. See more information here.

Magento 2

For connecting to Magento 2, you can use either your username and password or OAuth token. The latter can be obtained by creating an integration in Magento in the following way:

  1. Log in to Magento Admin Panel.
  2. On the sidebar on the left, click System, and then, under Extensions click Integrations.
  3. Click Add New Integration.
  4. Enter the integration Name and Email, and also specify Your Password
  5. Under Basic Settings, on the left, click API.
  6. Select check boxes for Resources to allow access to, or just select All in the Resource Access list.
  7. Click Save. This creates a new Magento integration. It is inactive yet, and now you need to activate it.
  8. On the Integrations page, click the Activate link for the corresponding integration. The list of Magento resources, the integration is granted access to, is displayed.
  9. Click Allow. Consumer Key and Authentication Token with the corresponding secrets are displayed.
  10. Copy the Authentication Token value.

    Magento Authentication Token

You can find more details about Magento integrations in Magento documentation.

Alternatively, you can use the admin token, which you can obtain by performing a web API call, as described in Magento documentation. This is not a recommended way, because performing a web API request is not a trivial task, and such token has a limited lifetime (4 hours by default). You can change the token lifetime in the following way:

  1. Log in to Magento Admin Panel.
  2. On the sidebar on the left, click Stores, and then, under Settings click Configuration.
  3. Click Access Token Expiration.
  4. Specify Admin Token Lifetime (hours).
