External Setup of Test Accounts

For the external setup of an etracker test account when sending the partner form (or with the corresponding trigger on the partner page), a JSON object needs to be filled dynamically with values and sent to an etracker. The following example shows the transfer of variables which need to be transferred as a minimum.

Transferring Variables

A test account with the products “etracker Analytics Enterprise Edition” and “etracker Optimiser Enterprise Edition” are set up in the backend system. The test account will be assigned to the partner with the ID you entered. The generated account ID and a link for the password allocation will be sent automatically to the email address provided here: test@test.de.

 "url": "http://www.test.de",
 "email": "test@test.de",
 "firstname": "TEST",
 "lastname": "TEST2",
 "commercial": "business",
 "company": "TEST GmbH",
 "packageId": 139,
 "additionalPackageId": 150,
 "partnerId": 1111,
 "dryrun": "false"

Sending JSON Object

The JSON object must be sent to the following URL and usernames using the POST method: URL: https://application.etracker.com/api/v6/accounts Username: If you need the basic authentication user name, please contact your Account Manager.

1. Select the method “Post” and enter the above-mentioned URL:

2. The header to be used in the plugin is the above-mentioned username: 3. Insert the JSON Object into the body of the plugin: e.g. the minimum transfer to variables.
