To move your BLOX Ad-Owl ads into your print publication you must export your fields using XML. Accessing the ad export requires that a webservice key is setup for your site — this is a control measure that allows for secure access to your site's data only by those with the proper credentials. The webservice key is comprised of a key code and a secret code that must be supplied each time you access the export.

Note: The XML output is best achieved using either Google Chrome or Firefox. (Internet Explorer may attempt to render the output differently.)


To access the export webservice, you will need to enter the following URL in your browser.  For example (replace the 'example.com' with your domain) https://example.com/tncms/webservice/v1/adowl/order_export/ and then supply the webservice key codes. This will provide the XML output of the approved orders in your BLOX Ad-Owl, which can then be copied into a file.  You may also provide additional parameters that can filter the selection of approved ads by order date and by category/classification code. 

Here are Options with examples.

  • run_date: Limits export to orders containing the specified run date.
  • order_date_min: Limits export to orders placed on or after the specified date.
  • order_date_max: Limits export to orders placed on or before the specified date.
  • modify_date_min: Limits export to orders that have been modified since the specified date.
  • class: Limits export to orders placed in the specified category classification code.
  • test_mode:  Test orders are exported to the XML output if the value of 1 is used.  Use the 0 value for non-test orders.  

Examples:

  • ?order_date_min=2013-06-01
    • Only return orders which were placed on or after June 1st.
  • ?order_date_max=2013-06-01
