Director Steve Winter presented his session title ‘Explore cURL for FileMaker’ at the Scandanavia FileMaker Developer Conference in Helsingør, Denmark.
Accessing data through REST is the current best-practice for data sharing. That’s not always been easy with FileMaker. Until now! In version 16 FileMaker introduced the FileMaker REST API which allows far easier integration of FileMaker with other systems.
In this session we’ll start from the beginning, looking at what REST is, why we might be interested in using it, how to configure FileMaker Server and a custom app to use the REST API and then begin interacting with our data.
Finally we’ll take a look at some simple examples of the way the API can be integrated into existing environments.
I also mentioned that you can access materials for the training session I ran at the US DevCon earlier this year – feel free to work through those activities.
