How do I do external API requests?

Post

I am trying to connect to my ecommerce API to pull in data into filemaker. I really don't know where to start. This is a sample code of one of the things I would need to do. This downloads certain information:

api_url = "http://YourUrl/net/WebService.aspx?Login=YourEmail@YourDomain.com&EncryptedPassword=YourPassword&//YourUrl/net/WebService.aspx?Login=YourEmail@YourDomain.com&EncryptedPassword=YourPassword&
API_Name=Generic\\Products&SELECT_Columns=p.ProductCode,p.ProductID,p.ProductName,p.StockStatus";

xml_http = new XMLHTTP();
xml_http.open("POST", api_url, false, "", "");
xml_http.send(null);
api_response = xml_http.responseText;
 
Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to do this?
