Demonstrates how to generate a signature for a Walmart Partner REST API call.

' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Dim success As Boolean

Dim consumerId As String = "b68d2a72...."
Dim baseUrl As String = "https://marketplace.walmartapis.com/v2/feeds"
' This is your Base64 encoded private key
Dim privateEncodedStr As String = "MIICeAIBADANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQEFAA......"
Dim httpMethod As String = "GET"

' We need a timestamp in decimal string form representing the number of milliseconds since Jan 01 1970 UTC.
Dim dt As New Chilkat.CkDateTime
' Set bLocal = True for a timestamp in the local timezone.  Set bLocal = False for a UTC timestamp.
Dim bLocal As Boolean = False
' This gets the timestamp in seconds, not milliseconds.
Dim timeStampVal As Integer = dt.GetAsUnixTime(bLocal)

' Build the string to sign.
Dim sbStringToSign As New Chilkat.StringBuilder

sbStringToSign.Append(baseUrl)

' We add three zero's so that the timestamp value is in milliseconds.
' We don't care about accuracy down to less than a second.
' All the server cares about is that the request was signed at the current date/time
' within some reasonable margin of error (to account for systems having clocks
' that may be slightly different).
sbStringToSign.Append("000" & vbLf)

Dim privKey As New Chilkat.PrivateKey
' Load the private key into a private key object.
' Note: Technically the private key is not PEM because it lacks the header/footer strings
' used for PEM.  However, the LoadPem method will still accept it and load it correctly.

If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.WriteLine(privKey.LastErrorText)

End If


Dim rsa As New Chilkat.Rsa
