FileMaker 16: The FileMaker Data API

Skeleton Key


REST comes to FileMaker

While we have been able to use plugins and the Insert from URL script step to consume data from other web-based systems using either SOAP or REST services, FileMaker did not have a native way to easily serve its data to other sites. There is custom web publishing, and ODBC connections, but that was still somewhat limiting when it came to serving data to other web-based systems from anywhere in the world. That all changes in FileMaker 16 with the introduction of the REST based Data API. Now your FileMaker solution can behave like any number of other databases from around the globe who have distinct APIs written for external users to consume the data.
