This class will help you kick start and accelerate your development on the Forge platform by demonstrating best practice workflows and tips & tricks for managing REST API calls and consuming JSON data. Examples will include uses of the Model Derivative API, Data Management API (including accessing data in BIM 360 Docs), Authentication API and Design Automation API. Prior knowledge in Web and Cloud development is recommended.
- Learn how to start development with the Forge server-side (REST) APIs
- Learn how to create workflows using REST apps for a faster development (PAW, Postman)
- Learn how to cURL your way through Forge with prettified JSON responses
- Learn useful resources for Forge server-side API focus
