  1. https://youtu.be/e_kuNITZ5SI Jacob and Richard are here to discuss the FileMaker Server Data API, or DAPI!

  2. 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. For the case you have not heard the term yet, webhook is usually defined as a “user-defined HTTP callback”. In plain English, it’s a web URL you can access and pass data to in order to perform some action in the target application. In the simplest form it’s just a link you can click and that alone performs the action. As an example, I took the built-in FileMaker starter solution for task management, and slightly modified it to send an e-mail when I assign someone to a task. Now whenever I assign someone to a task, that person receives a nicely formatted e-mail message with the task details, due date, and a link to click to change the task status to “Completed”.

  4. I updated my SwiftFM repo for the FileMaker 19 Data API. https://github.com/starsite/SwiftFM Notable improvements include support for the new `validateSession()`, and moving the server `message` into the completion block. So now you can access the message in the closure, where it's more helpful. Better examples as well. Give it a ⭐️ on GitHub if you find it useful. Thanks! 😘
  5. Using the Data API on FileMaker Cloud requires a token based on your FileMaker ID, here's how to go about that: https://www.soliantconsulting.com/blog/data-api-filemaker-cloud/
  6. Hi All, I am trying to set up a very basic HTML page to test out the FileMaker 16 Data API. I am on a Mac - EL Cap Test server: First of all I am using the Postman app on local host FileMaker server. I have got that working pretty well with success with scripts. I am attempting to take those settings and put them into an HTML web page. The first thing I am trying to do is try getting an authorization token using the post method with HTML web page. Currently, the pages are coming back BLANK including the console log so it's hard to track. Question: any ideas on how to get this set up? Here is my example test below– Any assistance would be appreciated. Thanks - Dave <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="UTF-8"> <title>auth test Document</title> <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.1.min.js"></script> <script src="https://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.4.5/jquery.mobile-1.4.5.min.js"></script> <script> $(document).ready(function(){ $("button").click(function(){ $.post("https://localhost/fmi/rest/api/auth/testfile", { headers: { 'Content-Type': 'application/json' }, // is this the right way to send headers user: "webtest", password: "webtest", layout: "webtest" }, function(data,status){ alert("Data: " + data + "\nStatus: " + status); console.log ('data', data); }); }); }); </script> </head> <body> <button>Send an HTTP POST request</button> </body> </html>
  7. FREE fmREST.php – Simplifies & manages PHP connections to FileMaker 16’s REST-based Data API. The newly released FileMaker Server 16 now offers REST access to your FileMaker databases. There’s more about that how this impacts PHP developers here. The bottom line is that to use REST as part of your PHP solution, you would usually need to write a series of cURL functions and you would have to manually manage connecting & disconnecting from your server, and saving your tokens. This is a pain! We know it’s a pain, because we have spent the last several weeks rolling REST functionality into soSIMPLE Calendar. We created this class file to make it easier to manage dynamic REST sessions for soSIMPLE and our custom development. The goal of the class file was to help PHP developers start using the new REST engine as quickly and easily as possible. We’ll also be updating it with new features. If you’d like to add something to it, please let us know. What fmREST.php does: Makes every REST call available as a PHP function. Automatically login into FileMaker Server whenever you call any REST functions Saves your token for 15 minutes to reuse Checks for a broken or disconnected token and automatically reconnects and runs your function again Where do I get it? You can download the fmREST class file here.
