API wrapper

Use the API wrapper to create custom calls to back-end databases. For example, you can use the API wrapper to retrieve a customer ID from the Commerce database and then use the customer ID to retrieve additional information from the ERP database.

The API wrapper passes information to that back end that is specific to the user who is signed in to your Rhythm website. The user information can be used to look up additional information related to the user, such as customer ID.
