API Subscriptions

See API Specification

Subscriptions allow you to receive API Events about database changes or UI actions. Each event is a REST style call to an endpoint of your choice.

Subscriptions POST

Version Added: 22.1

Creates a subscription. Subscriptions are specific to the Customer's API Key specified in the API request header. Each subscription is for either a database event or for a UI event.

EndPointUrl: Required. This is the URL endpoint to which events will be sent. Examples of endpoints that you might choose include:
   https://myserver/apievents/
   http://localhost:2097/
   http://192.168.1.14:2097/
Workstation: Required unless you want all workstations to be firing events. Only leave this blank if your endpoint is localhost. If you don't specify a workstation for the other scenarios, your endpoint will get the same event from multiple workstations, which is very undesirable.
PollingSeconds: Required for database events. Frequency of database polling, in seconds.
WatchTable: Required for database events. The name of the database table to monitor. Currently either "Patient" or "Appointment".
UiEventType: Required for UI Events. List of types is in API Events. Example: "PatientSelected".
DateTimeStart: Optional. When to start monitoring the table for changes. Default Now.
DateTimeStop: Optional. When the subscriptions expires. Default 01-01-0001 to represent no expiration.
Note: Optional.
