When integrating with the Waza API, following best practices to ensure seamless transactions, enhanced security, and optimized performance is essential. Here are some recommended integration best practices:
Thorough Testing: Before going live, extensively test your integration in our sandbox environment. Ensure all possible scenarios, edge cases, and error handling are well-tested.
Error Handling: Considering our commitment to clear error feedback, develop robust error-handling mechanisms. Properly handle different HTTP error codes and present user-friendly messages to end-users when necessary.
Store Events: It's recommended to store received events (especially webhooks) for future analysis or debugging.
Rate Limiting Awareness: Implement mechanisms to queue and retry requests, ensuring you don't exceed these limits and cause service disruptions.
Idempotency: Use idempotent requests wherever applicable to ensure safe retries. This ensures that if a request is made more than once, it won't have a different outcome.
Keep Your API Keys Secret: Never expose your Secret API keys in client-side code or public repositories. Regularly rotate and update your API keys for enhanced security.
Stay Updated: Regularly check for updates or changes to our documentation. This ensures you're always leveraging the latest features and security enhancements.
Validation: Before sending a request, validate all data on the client side to ensure it meets the API's requirements. This reduces unnecessary failed requests.
- Navigating through Pages: Begin with
page=1and incrementally adjust the page number until the returned.
total_pagesvalue is met.
- Tailoring Page Size: If dealing with numerous minor entries or if bandwidth isn't a concern, consider amplifying the
limit. If otherwise, reduce the
limitif data items are extensive or bandwidth is constrained.
- Managing Extensive Datasets: Constantly monitor
total_pages. With significantly large datasets in view, employ strategies like filtering or sorting to minimize the items you need to process.
