JSON, You Deserve [Arrays]

JSON, You Deserve [Arrays]
Shawn Krueger

JSON is the language of REST APIs and has also quickly become the de facto standard for passing parameters within FileMaker. We no longer need cryptic custom functions and workarounds to pass complex structured data between our scripts. Whether we are creating the latest digital transformation with Claris Connect and numerous REST APIs, or just making FileMaker more efficient, creating properly structured JSON is a valuable skill. Though approachable, FileMaker’s JSON functions can get complex. Learn naming and looping techniques to tame the beast.
