Admin - Ordering API: Stage 1

First stage of the API implementation only covers the following:

  • A table in a central database stores all the suppliers
  • Admin users can send a request to Cypad support add a supplier if the supplier is not in the list
  • When setting up a supplier (go to Kitchen Manager > Admin > Suppliers) a new drop-down list labelled 'Integrated supplier' retrieved from above API call
  • API provides a method to retrieve suppliers' names and IDs, another method is used to retrieve the access key and a secret password
  • Access Key and Secret password
    • Only SU’s can access this drop-down list, once a value is selected and saved, a button will be displayed to retrieve the Key and Secret password
    • This function only displays the Secret password once
    • A separate button will be available to reset the Secret password.
