ProcessMaker's API uses REST (Representational State Transfer) to allow external scripts to remotely access and control ProcessMaker. It provides a large number of endpoints so that almost any action that can be done within the ProcessMaker interface can also be done remotely using REST. ProcessMaker functionality can be reimplemented in external web pages, desktop applications and remote scripts. Using ProcessMaker's REST API, custom interfaces can be created to access ProcessMaker. The REST endpoints can also be accessed within ProcessMaker through PHP code in triggers or JavaScript code in Dynaforms.

In order to use ProcessMaker's REST API, follow these steps:

  1. Register the REST Application
  2. Obtain an access token from OAuth 2.0
  3. Calling ProcessMaker endpoints for:

Understanding REST

REST (Representational State Transfer) is a term introduced by Roy Fielding in his doctoral dissertation that strictly refers to a collection of principles for the design of network architectures. The term is frequently used to describe the direction of any interface transmitting specific data on a HTTP domain.

REST uses normal HTTP requests and responses, just like normal HTML, so it doesn't require any special protocols to function over the web. Each REST endpoint is a web address that provides access to a specific ProcessMaker service, such as getting a list of cases or creating a user. The REST endpoints are accessed using the following four HTTP methods:

Method Meaning
GET Retrieves a resource.
POSTInserts, updates, or extends a resource; may change the state of other resources.
PUTCreates, updates, or replaces a resource.
DELETEDeletes a resource.

The ProcessMaker Enterprise Edition v. 3.0.x offers features, performance improvements and plugins compatible with the new BPMN designer. Take into account that the plugins are still being moved/integrated with the enterprise edition of ProcessMaker 3.0. Not all the plugins were moved yet. That's why there is still the need to support both the plugins and the integrated features.

Additionally ProcessMaker 3.0 support both versions of processes the Classic and BPMN. Classic processes only work with plugins and BPMN processes work with features and plugins supported by them.
