BIM 360 Docs Account for Development

As we finish the BIM 360 focused webinars, we are receiving requests for BIM 360 Docs account for development. I talked about it in the second webinar. Here is the instruction to make it easy to find by googling.

  • ADN members – if you are an ADN member, you can request a developer version of license from the ADN extranet: adn.autodesk.io >> Development Software and Web Services Request Form.
  • Paid account owners – If you already have a paid BIM 360 Docs account, you can use your own account. (If you do not see “Apps and Integration” tab under SETTINGS tab of Account Admin module, you don’t have an access to API. You will need to request to activate it. Please refer to this post for where to make a request.)
  • If neither of above applies to you, you have two choices:

Materials from BIM 360 Online Hackathon Webinars

We just finished BIM 360 focused webinar series. The webinars were a part of BIM 360 Hackathon, the online event lasting for three months from August 1st to October 31st. The event is to kick off the opening of the new App Store for BIM 360. (Yes, we have App Store for BIM 360 now!) Currently, the store shelf only has apps that are “home grown”. The idea of the webinars is to help developers jump start implementing web service applications using BIM 360 and Forge.

If you missed the webinars, no worries. The webinars were recorded and are posted to the YouTube. I’m adding the links to the recording along with the presentation slides below.

Folder Creation API for BIM 360 Docs

API to create a folder in BIM 360 Docs is finally available. Before you go back to your code and try it out yourself, however, I should point out a few things that you may want to be aware:

  • It uses commands (not POST-project-folders end point)
  • It supports in the user context only: i.e., 3-legged authentication and 2-legged with x-user-id specified. No full 2-legged is supported at this time.

Note that BIM 360 Team and other A360 based data management service uses POST-projects-folders endpoint to create a folder; the command version does not work for them. These may potentially add confusion if you are not aware up front. BIM 360 Docs team is aware of these gaps and will continue to work on to provide consistent, full 2-legged support at later time. For now, most importantly, we have a way to create folder!  Let’s take a look.
