Introduction

Depending on your data needs, FME may be able to be integrated with other applications and platforms. Before beginning, check to see if an integration has already been created, these integrations may be listed on Safe.com or on the FME Hub. If FME does not integrate with the application you need, here are a few options:

  • Use the Application’s API 
  • Use FME Server
  • Use the FME Plug-in SDK

 

Options for Integrating with an Application

Use the Application’s API 

If your desired application has an API, it may be used with FME and the HTTPCaller transformer to create an integration. This integration can then be wrapped in a custom transformer and shared if desired. 
 

Use FME Server

FME Server can be used to automate integration workflows using automations, connect to the FME Server REST API with a different application, use webhooks, or embed a web-based application using an FME Server App
 

Use the FME Plug-in SDK

Developers can use the FME Plug-in SDK to develop an integration for their desired application.
 

Submit an Idea 

A fourth option if you don’t wish to create the application integration yourself, is to submit an Idea for the integration to the FME Community or reach out to one of our Partners
