What is PlanMill REST API?

PlanMill REST API (application programming interface) is a commercial add-on related to PlanMill CRM, PROJECT, and ERP. REST API enables information exchange between various business applications and PlanMill. The interface is published with some restrictions on other parties interested in developing PlanMill-compatible interfaces.

Customers who wish to use the interface coordinate dynamically with PlanMill for consulting services. Application Developers are offered an up-to-date documentation of the information content (modules, fields, lists of values).

Currently we are on the road of renewing our API 1.0 by building our API 1.5, read more about it here  When we get all resources available in 1.0 to be also available in the new API, we’ll publish it as 2.0
