Magento Custom Soap User

If you are having trouble using the Zenstores Magento Extension or do not want to use the extension then following this process allows you to integrate your Magento site with Zenstores without having to install anything. It's easy to do and can be achieved in a couple of minutes.

The Magento API is a standard feature of the Magento infrastructure so doesn't need to be added or installed by a developer. There are 2 types of Magento API:

  • REST (Magento V1.7.0 onwards)
This article covers the SOAP/XML configuration.

Step 1: Creating a SOAP/XML Role

  1. In the Magento admin panel choose System > Web Services > SOAP/XML - RPC Roles
  2. Choose Add New Role
  3. In the Role Info tab create a Role Name and choose Save Role
  4. In the Role Resources tab change the Resource Access drop down option to ALL and then choose Save Role

Step 2: Creating a SOAP/XML User

  1. In the Magento admin panel choose System > Web Services > SOAP/XML - RPC Users
  2. Choose Add New User
