Steps to Success

Hello Challenge Participants,

The Walgreens API team wanted to reach out and share the steps required in order to complete your integration with the Walgreens Balance Rewards API. Our typical on-boarding work flow is as follows:

  • Contest participant to provide Walgreens with a redirect_uri for the initial test build of your app.
  • We require this redirect_uri as it is how we callback to your website after the oAuth Request is complete. 
  • Walgreens will provide an API key, affiliate_id and user login account for your app which is authorized to access the Walgreens test environment.
  • Walgreens invite you to a dedicated http://basecamp.com project to help you start and finish your integration.
  • You drink coffee, integrate, and dance.
  • You send us a build of your app that can be tested by our awesome QA team.
  • We run QA testing on the integration of the API.
    • If there are issues we report back via the Basecamp project.
    • Assuming there are no issues/bugs, we setup an official affiliate_id and redirect_uri for your app in our production environment.
  • You send us a production build of your app that can be tested by our awesome QA team.
    • If there are issues we report back via the Basecamp project.
    • Assuming there are no issues/bugs, we give you the Go-Ahead to go submit your app to the applicable App Store.

 

Whatever step you might be along in this process we wanted to show you all of the steps to success in this challenge.

So, get out there and start integrating now! We look forward to see the amazing ideas you come up with!

 

Happy Hacking, 

The Walgreens API team
