Catalog Metadata
GitHub Sample Application
A sample application showing how to listen for and process AWS SNS messages via an AWS Lambda function is available on GitHub ( https://github.com/rightsline/sample-lambda ).
To use the sample application you will need to perform the following steps:
  1. 1.
    The nomenclature for SNS topics is as follows:
    {environment}-rtl-div{div_number}-v4-ct{char_type_id}
    • environment: See table "Environment Variable" below.
    • div: this is your company identifier assigned by Rightsline, typically a two to four digit number
    • char_type_id: See char type table at Char types
  2. 2.
    Provide your Rightsline representative with your AWS account id along with the SNS topics you wish to subscribe. They will set up the required access policies so you can begin receiving messages.
  3. 3.
    Follow the steps under Obtaining API Credentials page to obtain your API key, access key, and secret keys. These will be used to make calls into the Rightsline API.
  4. 4.
    Determine the API endpoint ( see Overview page ) for your requests.

When executing your lambda you will need to set the following inputs to the function:
  • RLAPIKEY: This is provided to your company by Rightsline ( contact Rightsline representative ).
  • RLACCESSKEY: This is created in step 3 above and tied to your Rightsline user account.
  • RLSECRETKEY: This is created in step 3 above and tied to your Rightsline user account.
  • RLAPIURL: This is found in step 4 above (no protocol needed, just the hostname - api.rightsline.com).
Postman
A collection of Postman calls are available to help you get started with interacting with the catalog-item Rightsline API. A collection that can be imported into your workspace can be found @ https://www.getpostman.com/collections/d4d84bd442a650819372
There are example API calls for:
  1. 1.
    Getting temporary credentials
  2. 2.
    Searching the catalog
  3. 3.
    Creating a catalog item ( w/ a deal )
  4. 4.
    Updating a previous created catalog item
  5. 5.
    Retrieving a catalog item
  6. 6.
    Deleting a catalog item
