Proxy Introduction

Otto provides a proxy over the FileMaker Server Data API. A 'proxy' is just a wrapper around another service that provides some additional features over the service it wraps. In this case, Otto's proxy service provides two additional features over the  Data API.

  1. API Keys

    Easily get long-lived Api Tokens you can use in place of the session tokens to Authenticate to the API. Behind the scenes, Otto saves the Database Token and will login as needed to get a fresh token.

  2. Access from Browsers

    The FileMaker Data API does not call JavaScript Running in a browser to connect through to the API. This Proxy will let you do that.

You use the Proxy almost exactly how you use the developer API. Read  this article for more information on the differences and how to use it.

You can also list keys and delete keys through the  Developer API
