Why the API is so critical

Post by jordansparks » Wed Jun 16, 2021 8:33 pm

If we have some customers who move to cloud hosting, then their databases will not be locally accessible to 3rd party tools. No more queries. We do have bridges (program links) working in that scenario, but I feel like plug-ins can't work because no third party will have access to the server to install their plug-in. Even for our existing on-premises customers, maintaining plug-ins must be a hassle.
The API solves these problems. It allows powerful curated access to the database and to many useful methods.
