  1. We have recently released fmRESTor 19 along with a brief 8-minute step-by-step video on how you can use fmRESTor to add a webhook to your own FileMaker database.

  12. I am working on an API integration from FileMaker 17 to Emma. Generally when I work on a new API, I get the curl working on the command line and then translate that into FM.

From the command line, the code is: curl -u USER:PASS -H "Accept:application/json" -H "Content-type: application/json" -X POST -d '{"fields": {"name_first": "TESTFIRST","name_last": "TESTLAST","eligible": "false","expiration": "@D:2019-06-30

  16. Hello, I am trying to connect to our current database with our shipping company so I can update the status of the delivered orders. To do that, I am currently using insert from URL and then parse the code to extract the info I need. However, I believe there should be a cleaner and safer way to do it using webservice. So I downloaded the documentation and looks very straightforward to set and I have been able to set up the POST and send it getting the data as XML using POSTMAN (as very well explained here: http://www.filemakerprogurus.com/filemaker-api-integration-salvatore-co

Per the shopify API documentation, to add an order note, you do the following: Add Note to order PUT /admin/orders/#{id}.json { "order": { "id": 450789469, "note": "Customer contacted us about a custom engraving on this iPod" } } Can someone help me wi

  22. XML error: No memory at line 1 Greetings, this error occurred when the Filemaker API cannot generate a bunch of records. (1000+ records and above) I've adjusted the time out settings for PHP even the memory limits. Is there any possible solution for this?

  23. I am having an issue with a value list not showing up on my php page consistently. Most times the value list appears as it should. Some times it will come up blank. If I REFRESH the page, then it usually appears. I don't think my coding is incorrect because it works most of the time. Why would I have to refresh the page for it to appear. Does it have to do with the server connection…? I do display other fields on the php page, like name and email address, but the value list is the only one that does not show up all the time.

Is this CURL? Are you aware of sample FM scripting that I
