FilesAnywhere Developer Community is catered to allow Developers an opportunity to be knowledgeable of API Resources and all new API developments.

The community will serve as a means to sharing ideas and insights on FilesAnywhere technologies and programming techniques. The FilesAnywhere Developer Community is also designed to encourage developers to exchange technical ideas and information using FilesAnywhere API. As a developer you can get insights from FilesAnywhere engineers and other related software developments on a variety of hot topics.

FilesAnywhere Mobile

This streamlined web interface is the most complete example of the FA API in action. The Mobile Interface can be used from all popular cell phones, including the iPhone, or any computer. The Mobile interface provides a great "360-degree view" of how all of the API features can be used from a website. This includes uploading, download, sharing, GroupShare access, image viewer, thumbnails and much more.

Desktop App for Mac

Developed entirely using FA API functions, this Mac OS application delivers easy-access features for Mac Users to upload, download, and send files directly from the Mac desktop.

Microsoft Outlook Add-In

The FilesAnywhere Outlook Add-in a powerful tool for Microsoft Office users, and an example of a .NET application using web services to perform file operations with FilesAnywhere accounts, from a Windows app.

Performance

FilesAnywhere's Application Programming Interface (FAWAPI) enables your FilesAnywhere account to be integrated with applications and web sites using the standard web services. This allows you to establish automated processes to manage and operate; directly impacting your productivity and bottom line.

Using FilesAnywhere API you are now able to reach maximal transfer speeds using the new Speed Burst Feature.

Security

FilesAnywhere API uses the industry standard SSL Encryption for access to https://api.filesanywhere.com. FilesAnywhere also requires a user authentication on login to access your account.

Sample Code

Sample code for each specific function is found under each function reference in this online document, for SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2 and Visual Basic .Net code. (beginning on P.17)

What can I do with the API?

The API enables programmers to perform most of the common FilesAnywhere functions remotely, with no user interaction. This includes:

  • Account Login
  • Basic File Uploads and Downloads
  • Streaming Uploads ("AppendChunk" method)
  • Basic Folder Management, like viewing folder contents and creating new folders
  • Basic File Operations, like renaming and deleting files/folders
  • Advanced File Operations, like copying and moving files/folders
  • Advanced Folder Management, like viewing advanced folder properties
  • Share Management, like creating new shares and managing existing shares
  • Online Viewer Operations, like requesting page images for supported file types

Introducing the FilesAnywhere API

The FilesAnywhere SOAP API (FAWAPI) provides a simple web services interface to your FilesAnywhere account. The API (Application Programming Interface) enables your FilesAnywhere account to be integrated with applications and web sites using the standard web services protocol.

SOAP is a simple, XML–based protocol for exchanging messages between a client and a web service. SOAP is independent of any particular operating system, hardware platform, programming language or development environment.

The API is freely available for commercial or non-commercial use by anyone having a FilesAnywhere Account.

Who Should use the API?

The API is designed for use by Programmers. If you are not a programmer, you will probably want to involve a programmer in your review of the FilesAnywhere API, since topics are described in technical terms. 

The API will involve some software programming, to make it work in your environment, for your application. If you are not interested in doing any programming, the API is not the solution you are looking for. See the "Simple Alternative" section below. 

You can also implement a custom website interface using the API and the sample web interface we have made openly available. This API-driven web interface can be customized without changing much code, but you would need to be familiar with web publishing and you may need to maintain the website code if there are changes published to the API functions in the future.

Need a Simple Alternative to the API?

To automate file transfers without programming (without the API), there are a couple of alternatives we recommend. You can schedule file uploads or downloads, synchronizations, even folder deletions, all without the API.

Please refer to this expanded help page for limited ways to automate your account without programming: Automating FilesAnywhere the Easy Way
