This article discusses how to perform Flow API operation without the Flow API.
Why not just call the API?
- It is not installed, I have regular Perl only.
- I want to use a different language.
See attached script.
The script generates XML requests directly and then calls HTTP Post.
It can be ported to any language that has an API for calling HTTP Post.
The script also includes some sample code and instructions on how to "discover" the format of a Flow XML request.
REST API is also available as of Commander v.5.2 onwards.
