WEB SERVICES API
PROFILE SETUP PROCESS
In order to use Oak Harbor Freight Lines’ web services you will need a “web service account” and a
corresponding “web service key”. In general it takes 2-4 days to get this setup
Create an OAKH.com profile through this
email account you enter is going to be your userid, we require that the userid (email) is not
specific to an individual person. For example, we recommend using something like
email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com. We also
recommend that the email is a distribution list instead of standalone account. Distribution list
allows you to easily manage membership within your company. OHFL uses the userid (email
account) to communicate service downtime and API changes. After you hit “save changes”
button, a notification will be sent to our web account Administrator to review your profile.
Our web account Administrator will process your request and may contact you for clarification
and/or additional information. If you are developing a web service on behalf of a mutual
customer, you will need to provide a Letter of Authorization (LOA).
After your profile is reviewed and approved, your request will be forwarded to IT web services
team where they will assign a unique API key to your userid. The API key will be used to
authenticate your connection (password is not used in web services). There will be two API keys
assigned to your userid, one for test environment and the other for production. API Keys will
be sent to you using the email address you provided (your userid).
When you are ready to develop an API connection, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and indicate which API you’d like to develop, our technical team will work with you to stage and
configure test data. When migrating to production simply replace the test key with the
production key. We request that you send a notification email to email@example.com at
least 1 day prior to migrating to production, this will allow us to provide optimum support
during your transition.
