Webinar Details

Now that you know how to Connect to Any REST API, take it to the next level by connecting to complex APIs.

Access to web services means more automation and less manual work (sign me up, right?). However, many of these web services have poorly documented APIs, or APIs with requirements so complex they are hardly worth the trouble.

We think all levels of users should be able to leverage web services. Which is why FME’s HTTPCaller transformer offers a no-code way to meet all API requirements.

In this webinar, learn how to use advanced configuration of the HTTPCaller to build different queries. Some of the topics include:

  • Attaching files to requests
  • Turning code into an HTTPCaller call
  • Pagination
  • Reducing repetition using FME Server
  • HTTP Query Languages
  • API "Databases" (ie. Socrata)
  • Custom Transformers

By understanding how to configure the HTTPCaller for real-life scenarios, you can maximize the use of web services and increase your productivity.
