Getting information from Arthur for the property hive plugin

Property hive provides a plugin to connect a WordPress website to Arthur

Authentication

To make sure your data is secure and only you can access it, we require some form of authentication to be able to retrieve/alter data on your account. This is your system’s way of ‘logging in’ to our API, in the same way you would log in through your browser to access your account. To get a token, you can follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to your Dashboard in Arthur. From there select ‘Settings’, then under Account Settings, you should see OAuth Applications
  2. Once on OAuth applications note down your Entity ID found in the orange message at the top – you will need this later for any API calls.
  3. Select ‘Add Application’ in the top right.
  4. Enter the following 4 fields:
    1. Name – The display name of your application
    2. Description – Describe what the application does and what it will be used for
    3. Website – A URL where you can find more information about your application (does not necessarily have to be the website you are integrating with)
    4. Callback URL – This is a URL that will be redirected to after performing step 1 of authorizing. It should be a public endpoint that can retrieve the ‘code’ variable from the query parameters. If you are authorizing on the same machine as your server (e.g. a local development environment) then you can use the localhost as the domain for this.

When you submit you should see your OAuth Application in your list with a Client ID and Client Secret – note these as they will also be needed for performing the last steps of authentication.

You should have everything you need now to set up the Authorization flow. Please follow this step-by-step guide to getting access tokens: https://apidocs.arthuronline.co.uk/apis/(apispage:authentication).

 

Step 1

Go to preferences> oauth> add application

 

Step 2 

Add application and retrieve call back URL from within your property hive account within settings

 

 

Step 3 

Once saved you will see both the client id and secret id both required by property hive to complete the process
