Calling Custom Stored Proc in Catalina API gives Checksum Error

If you are trying to make a call to a custom stored procedure, you may get an error back like the following:

{
    "errorMessage": [
        {
            "errorMessage": "Message - Failed CheckSum!\nTrace -    at ctDynamicsSL.lib.common.customSQLCall(String sqlCall, nameValuePairs[] inParms, String checkSum)\nSource - ctDynamicsSLLib\n"
        }
    ]
}

This is because Catalina’s API has security where you need to create a hash and pass that hash of the name of the stored procedure (using the same APIKey setup in ctDynamicsSL) so that when the API retrieves your request for the SQL call, it is using the same shared key for the hash encryption.

If you don’t want to do this, you can look at your DSLConfigFile.xml file. Look in the XML block denoted by the SiteID you are using in your header and make sure that this line is there (with the value = TRUE — All Caps). This will disable that checksum check.
