This page answers the most frequently asked questions for our Customers and Partners.
What is client ID? How can I retrieve the client ID?
Client ID is assigned by WorldFirst to identify the Partner during an API call. Partner needs to submit the client ID in the request header before transmitting the message to WorldFirst.
A Partner can retrieve the client ID from WorldFirst solution architecture team. For more about obtaining credentials, refer to the related chapter in the integration guide.
Why do I need to add and verify the signature?
To ensure the data integrity and authenticity, WorldFirst requires an API call to be properly signed before transmission. Additionally, a Partner needs to verify the signature after receiving an API call from WorldFirst.
For more technical details and steps to generate a signature, sign an API call with the signature, and verify the signature in an API call, refer to the Sign a request and validate the signature chapter.
