Hi Peter, I agree. I will pass your comment to the main admin owner of these dev blog.
Hi Sushil, I'd suggest posting question to AutoCAD Customization forum: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/autocad-customization/ct-p/AutoCADTopic1 You can point to this post when you are describing the problem if it helps. Balaji is no longer with Autodesk. I'm on BIM side now. I don't have brain to help you on this topic. But we have many other people who knows AutoCAD APIs.
Hi David, Yes, you are absolutely right. That's why I pointed to the previous post about more detail where it explains why it sometime works and sometimes not. If you are able to make use of it, it is okay to use it. This is more about the status and history of LISP on ACA/AME for younger people who is just starting to learn LISP or AutoCAD products. By the way, one of few left from the original ACA team told me that 2017 is the 20th release of ACA, including 3.3 and German only 2.0. Some of you who knows ACA for a long time, may feel nostalgic. Congratulations to the successful launch of 20th ACA!
Hi John, Thank you for the comments. Interesting - you are the third person who mentioned about hospital this few weeks. I was introducing Building Ops at ADN Developer Conferences at AU Vegas, Osaka and Tokyo. I immediately got feedback at those locations. I already passed the feedback to the Building Ops product manager.
Hi Adam, You may want to add this is in the U.K. Not Manchester, NH, U.S. :-)

Please try: POST /fieldapi/issues/v1/create_type This method takes a name of category and a name of issue type: ticket project_id category_name – string.

There is a small API enhancement that was made available in the latest update of BIM 360 Field. It allows you to retrieve a list of issues related to a given equipment. POST /fieldapi/issues/v1/search request has two additional parameters, source_id and source_type: source_id – an id of source object, i.e.,... Continue reading

Hi Robert, One more: https://github.com/VBA-tools/VBA-Web Again, I haven't used VBA to do any restful things. This sounds interesting.

Hi Robert, I never used REST API with VBA. But when I Googled, I found this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19553476/how-to-make-rest-call-with-vba-in-excel You may want to give it a try from there?

For the sake of completeness, I'm adding a comment here. This turned out to be a product issue, not API specific. Please see the discussion here: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/bim-360-api/curl-adding-underscores-to-file-names/td-p/5768595

There was an interesting question. /api/projects call returns a field named is_active with a value of true/false. This indicates which project is currently active in the given UI session. This could be easily mistaken as project status. Q. /api/projects call returns is_active, a value of true/false. But it is not... Continue reading

Hi Justin, I tried with my sample code, which is using RestSharp, it takes care of blank spaces as is. So sounds like it is curl usage issue. When I googled, I found this article: http://developers.curlap.com/curl/docs/caede/en/docs/en/dguide/basic-syntax.html Escape Sequence Description \n Newline character \r Carriage return character \t Tab character \ (blank space) Non-breaking space character ... Could you try with escape and see it helps?

Hi Ruben, Good question! Obviously, I'm not in a position to talk about future plan for any products. So please don't take this as official statement from Autodesk. But certainly, having the similar level of API is something we want. (I personally want very badly; current Glue display component is too limited in its capabilities.) Another thing to think about is the fact that major browsers we commonly use are gradually dropping support for plugins. Web world is going WebGL. So certainly when it comes to viewer, plugin-less, pure web-based is the direction to go. cf. http://the360view.typepad.com/blog/2015/05/google-chrome-drops-npapi-plugin-support.html View and Data API still does not support all what Glue functionality needs. We'll see how things evolve... cf. http://the360view.typepad.com/blog/2015/05/a360-viewer-vs-glue-viewer.html
