REST Object Type Connector for M-Files

Easily connect external systems with M-Files

Any implementation requires the integration of multiple systems, and should result in a seamless syncronization. With REST Object Type Connector for M-Files you can easily connect M-Files with external systems. 

It supports both simple scenarios where objects should only be viewable within the M-Files client, but also more complex ones where objects created, changed, or deleted in the M-Files client should be pushed back to the originating web service.
