Hi Experts,

 

Is there any API for Rulestream Architect (not Engineer) ?

If not, are there any plans for the future?

 

Thanks,

Why would you want an API of an API?

To automate tasks in Architect.

Create applications, part family, its properties etc.

 

The uses are plenty.

I think there is no API but as far as I've noticed Architect is generally only a Client for Rules DB updates.

You can pretty easy check what DB activities are under Architect actions and then replicate them in your application.

You can run SQL Profiler on your rules DB, perform an action on architect and see what queries and in what order were executed on DB.

For creating PFs, properties etc. it's not a big deal to automate it using exactly the same queries as used by architect.

This is the approach I wanted to avoid. Typically no one guarentees the structure of the db schema and is subject to change without notice. But if the product has an API exposed then that is guarnteed to continue to work.

So I think you must wait for Siemens guys to expose any API...

RSArchitect is an application that runs stored procedures to both push and pull information in the Rules database.
