This article describes how to setup requirements for Magento.

Detailed Steps


Please NOTE this is usually setup by the Customers IT Staff or WEB DEVELOPER. Do not progress with these steps unless you have been specifically authorised to update the website configuration.

Within Magento we require the SOAP/XML v2 interface to be setup with a User. To ensure the User has sufficient access rights they should be a member of an Admin group if it exists.

To check that the Web Server is working you can open the http://magentourl/?wsdl in a browser.

Add Workflow Stages

If required you may need to add new workflow stages to indicate that the order has been downloaded by the MagentoLink software.

In this case we typically setup an APPROVED status - which really just indicates that the order has been downloaded.

Always link the APPROVED flag to the PROCESSING status in the core Magento workflow status options.

Add Approved Status

If required you will need to add the Approved Status as per the below:
