Installation

REST Object Type Connector enables you to import objects from an external REST web service into M-Files as external objects. Connector supports both simple scenarios where objects should only be viewable within the M-Files client, but also the more complex ones where objects created, changed, or deleted in the M-Files client should be pushed back to the originating web service.

How to install

Perform the following steps to install the connector:

  1. Open M-Files Admin.
  2. In the left-side tree view, expand the desired connection to M-Files Server.
  3. In the left-side tree view, expand Document Vaults.
  4. Still in the left-side tree view, right-click the document vault of your choice and select Applications from the context menu.

  2. Locate the application package stored on your computer and click Open
  3. Result: You are prompted to restart the document vault
  4. Click Yes at the prompt
  5. If you have open sessions in the selected vault, you are prompted to close any open sessions. Click Yes.
  6. After the application is installed, click License to install a license for the connector. Result: The Application License Management dialog is opened.
  7. Click the Install License… button.
