You may be aware that the Quick File API comes with a sandbox area where you can experiment with various combinations of your own hand crafted XML. You don't really need much programming experience to work with the sandbox, just a basic understanding of how XML is structured.
What you may not be aware of however is that you can eliminate the need to create the authentication headers by accessing the sandbox area from your account while you are logged in. The
MD5Value will then be automatically populated.
<ApplicationID>--Obtain from the App section in account settings--</ApplicationID>
To access the API sandbox from your account, use the horizontal menu on the dashboard to select
Account Settings then select
All settings. You will then see an option towards the bottom under Third Party Integration,
Create a Quick File App.
Once you have registered your first application you will see a link to start testing in the sandbox. When you access the sandbox from your account we will automatically bind the authentication header above for you!
