The sun is shining and our engineers are singing because API 8 has arrived to iFormbuilder! API 8 may be an early birthday present to our team, but that doesn’t mean we can’t share the benefits with everyone.
What’s in it for you?
- Faster Response Time: API 8 response time is 50% faster than API 6.
- Updated Versioning: It’s now easier for our team to make updates and send out new versions for you to use! This means we’ll be faster in fixing bugs and adding improvements for a smoother user experience. In fact, we’ve already put out 8.1 with big changes to GET records and GET list.
- GET Page Updates: New fields have been added to the GET Page request to include shared forms, shared-subforms and shared-lookups.
- Improved Error Messaging for Records: We have implemented detailed error messaging so it is clear which field(s) prompt a call to fail.
