Testsuite

In section “Testsuite” you can find some helpful tools that will support you in your daily work with ASA 2.

Placeholders

With the “Placeholders” tool, you can check the contents of all placeholders on a certain product. Enter the ASIN and country store or search a product with the product picker (magnifier button). Now click the “Submit” button.

A complete list of available placeholders for the selected product will be loaded.

List of placeholders

By default, the result will not load images or show the contents of array placeholders like {{ FeaturesArray }}. To do so, check the options “Show images” and “Show array contents” below the submit button before you submit the form.

If the product is not yet stored in the Repo, you can check the option “Transfer to Repo” and hit the submit button. The product will then be added to the Repo if it did not exist already.

API response

Sometimes it can be helpful to check what data the Amazon Product Advertisment API delivers for a product, e.g. if the price on the product page differs from the price you see on your site. With the “API response” tool you can retrieve the XML result from the API. Just enter the ASIN and country store or search a product with the product picker (magnifier button). Then click the “Get response” button.

With a little knowledge about the API response, you can find the values you are looking for.
