Hello Everyone,

 

With the new http capabilities of Filemaker 13 I'm worndering if I can interact directly between Filemaker and a proprietary REST API. Basically, I need to be able to open a session and then get and put information. The problem is I have no idea where to starts with the Filemaker side and am wondering if someone can help get me started.

 

As stated, the first step is to open a session. The instructions in the API documentation says:

 

Request

PUT https://www.url.com/developer/api/2/session/

Content-type: text/xml Accept: text/xml X-PIX-App-Key: 8AC1A910-330D-44E0-84C6-9C1F55545F17 <session> <username>myusername</username> <password>myPassword!</password> <active_project>1982</active_project> </session>

With www.url.com representing which service of theirs I need to log into.

 

Does anyone know how I would execute this in FMP?

 

Thanks,

 

Dan
