FileMaker Developer Conference 2017
Innovation Session Track

Topic: Explore cURL for FileMaker
Speaker: Steve Winter

FileMaker’s robust functionality can be supplemented with a Web Service (or API) to help solve pretty much any task. But sometimes accessing those APIs through http(s) doesn’t provide the flexibility needed. One example of this is if you need to send custom authentication headers or to use a protocol other than HTTP.

In this session, you’ll begin to explore cURL for FileMaker. Developers in other ecosystems have long been able to call on the power of cURL and you’ll learn how to make it work for you.

Recommended Background
A basic understanding of REST APIs.

Session Objectives:
(1) Accessing external APIs using InsertFromURL and cURL parameters
(2) Implementing simple sync using cURL and the FileMaker REST API
(3) What OAuth is, why it matters, and how to make it work in FileMaker
