Your Simplified Guide to Runa API

This video aims to share with you everything you need to know before migration. 

1. Understanding the API differences:

  • Connect vs Runa API: The Runa API supports both synchronous and asynchronous modes, allowing up to 500 items in a single order compared to Connect's single-item limit.
  • Key Management: Runa API offers multiple API keys per account with the ability to revoke them as needed, providing enhanced security and flexibility.
  • Ease of Ordering: With the Runa API, ordering payout links is simplified – no need for pre-created templates.

2. Selecting your ordering mode:

  • Synchronous mode: Ideal for simple integrations requiring a single order item.
  • Asynchronous mode: Best for event-based flows or large number of items in an order.

3. Getting started:

  • API key creation: Generate a new key and comply with security requirements.
  • Set up the base URL: Choose the appropriate base URL for your requests, depending on your testing and production needs.

4. Making your first API request:

  • Retrieving product lists: Write a function to pull product information based on country code
  • Creating orders: Develop a function for placing orders, including payment methods and order items.

5. Error handling and idempotency:

  • Managing errors: Implement error handling for common issues like validation errors or network issues.
  • Idempotency for reliability: Use idempotency keys to prevent duplicate orders in case of re-sending requests.

6. Testing and launch:

  • Test your integration: Use the Runa Playground to build and test your API integration in our risk-free environment.
  • Transitioning to live environment: Move to the production environment after ensuring all configurations are correct and ready for actual orders.
