    How to use Sylius API?

    To use Sylius API, one need to get access token for the same which can be fetched by following steps:

    1. Create OAuth client by running following command:
      • $ php bin/console sylius:oauth-server:create-client –grant-type=”password” –grant-type=”refresh_token” –grant-type=”token”
    2. You will receive a response like : A new client with public id XYZ, secret ABC has been added.

    Now, From your API Client ,

    Register your API end point to get access token:

    Creating a function to get Access Token :

    The above function call 3 major functions:

    1. Creating request for Access Token API.
    2. Default Curl Setting.
    3. Creating response for Access Token API.

    Creating request for Access Token API.

    Default Curl Setting.

    Creating response for Access Token API.

    This will set fetched Access Token into $this->accessToken variable which can be further used to manipulate Sylius Store Data with APIs.

    NOTE – The older version of PHP will result in installing older version of Sylius.
