Extending Otto's REST API

You can extend Otto's express.js http server with a custom Router that will mount at https3030/extensions/. These functions can be used to run any JavaScript functions on your server. You could use this like a simple Lambda or cloud function, or add additional automation hooks into your server. For example, you could add a POST endpoint that would commit a FileMaker file to a git repository.

Proxy and API Keys

Otto provides a proxy over the FileMaker Server Data API, FileMaker Server Admin API, and the Otto Developer API. The primary purpose of the proxy is to allow the use of API Keys to authenticate to the FileMaker Server Data API and FileMaker Server Admin API.

Receiving webhooks with Otto

FileMaker applications need to receive webhooks from other applications. This can be done with the FileMaker Data API or with other applications like Claris Connect, or Zapier. Otto makes this easy to do without having to set up another service, or handle the FileMaker Data API’s authentication yourself. It also works well with Claris Connect or Zapier.
