301 Redirect Live
We recently sent out information about our planned changes to accept only HTTPS (SSL) API requests. As a first step in the change to only accepting HTTPS, we have put a 301 redirect in place for those requests that are sent as HTTP. Additional information about this change includes:
api.bbyremix.bestbuy.comare going away in favor of
Starting July 10th, all HTTP requests will receive a status code of
426(which basically means “you have to switch to HTTPS”). If your API integration is using anything other than https://api.bestbuy.com, your implementation will break at this time.
We will send reminders again June and July. We encourage you to immediately update your API integrations to use https://api.bestbuy.com/. We’ll be dropping previously used hostnames (such as api.remix.bestbuy.com) as well as plain-text HTTP support to simplify, streamline and secure our integrations with your systems.
If you have questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for being such an awesome community,
Eric Caron & the entire API team
