API Product Data Fields


Modern Retail has been integrated with Tri-Technical Systems AIM since 2012.  The initial integration with AIM was done by moving XML and CSV files back and forth over FTP.  However, with the release of AIM v12, the integration is now done using their Application Programming Interface (API).  This article describes the product fields we get from AIM using this approach.

AIM Product API

Modern Retail gets products from AIM by using their GetActiveE3PartyRequest call, which you can find here:

As you can see, this call has a lot of data values that have been added over the years to support different services.  Obviously, not all of these data points are being used by Modern Retail.
