Linoma Software [now HelpSystems] has extended GoAnywhere Managed File Transfer’s workflow automation and file transfer features to include SOAP and RESTful Web Services. Combined with new JSON Read & Write tasks, GoAnywhere MFT 5.4 provides better integration with Web Services and other applications for securely transferring data and automating processes.
“Organizations are looking for ways to automate data transfers and integrate systems using cloud-based or internal API’s” says Steve Luebbe, Linoma’s Director of Engineering. “They also want an easy way to process the XML and JSON formatted data that is returned from the server which are some of the new features we incorporated into GoAnywhere MFT 5.4.”
To provide a fully integrated SOAP and REST solution, a number of new tasks, resources, and workflow features were added including:
In addition to Workflow enhancements, both Secure Forms and GoAnywhere Command have been updated to integrate with Web Services. Secure Forms can now be submitted using SOAP requests, offering an ideal solution for users to build custom applications that submit data and files to GoAnywhere. GoAnywhere’s API interface supports both REST and SOAP requests to automate GoAnywhere Workflows and User provisioning through existing applications.
The new Web Services integration delivers significant time savings for GoAnywhere users. In just a few steps, users can take advantage of Web Services standardization to quickly connect applications and share data across a diverse range of systems and platforms. The entire process can be completed with just a few clicks and requires no programming knowledge.
Current GoAnywhere MFT customers who upgrade to the new release also gain functionality for workflow automation and user authentication. New feature highlights include:
