XML Datafeed API Access
Focus' legacy Datafeed consists of an XML file generated at the store-level. This file represented a database dump providing integrators with all labor, employee, financial & product data generated by Focus.
Legacy integrators would have a store-level agent application that would obtain this file,
To simplify integrators migrating to Focus' Cloud-Based solution, the XML Datafeed is now accessible from a RESTful GET request.
How to obtain the XML Datafeed
Using your Integrator Credentials integrators will make a REST GET request to:
https://focuslink.focuspos.com/datafeed?date=<day of business - yyyy-mm-dd>
The integrators Authorization Header must be properly calculated and contain the storeKey that the Integrator is requesting Datafeed for.
Authorization: hmac 1234567891011121314:rfQ7BNTJCwOjLMUZKtmM9++Q8I/hCzc3dp3X53iXPFw=:7166
Note that 7166 is the storeKey in this case.
This GET request will return the XML Datafeed for October 11th, 2019 for storeKey 7166.
