    Uniprint API

    Rhys Gottwald Wayfarer

      Hi all,

       

      Is there documentation on how to use the API in Uniprint 9?

          Good Morning Rhys,

           

          There is not any publicly available "official" documentation at this time.

           

          Regards,

          Steven

              Thank you Steve.  Is there a time frame on documentation?

                Hi Rhys,

                 

                                Have you installed API? Are you running "my print center" ?

                    Hi John,

                     

                      Not at the customer, but I have it on my PC for testing purposes.  I am more interested in trying out some ideas I have with the API, nothing that urgent ATM.

                     

                    Regards

                        Hi Rhys,

                         

                        As far as I know we will not be releasing the documentation for the PharosAPI that is used for the same reason we do not publish specifications to the PharosEDI (External Device Interface).  Should that change at some point in time I'm sure an announcement will be posted in the communities if and when it gets released.

                         

                        The PharosAPI has limited abilities at the moment as it is currently under ongoing development to help further the functionality of the Pharos Print Center which is the only component currently using it.

                         

                        What types of ideas do you have?  What are you looking for it to do?

                         

                        We can pass these ideas on to Product Management for review.

                         

                        Regards,

                    Hi Rhys,

                     

                                    There's really nothing to configure, it's part of the install. Be careful however, I've had the Microsoft Windows update break the Pharos REST API service. It seemed to be related to the latest version of dot.net messing with IIS. Just in case you don't have it running already, WCF htp activation needs to be installed and running for the Pharos API to work properly.

                     

                    Regards,
