    Rating: ! ! Sample Code Rating: ! ! Errors Code Rating: ! “It would be also great to have a sandbox request/response area to execute sample requests on the fly.” “I received as a .pdf document. API documentation has all details, step-by- step implementation and request/ response samples.” “In the documentation, all API endpoints given with a sample request code piece. Would be nice to see more languages.” “Depending on what type of error occurred and lack of standard error HTTP status codes made development challenging.” © 2015 Walgreen Co.
