REST update of controlling data - also in Cloud environments

With the June'22 release of Next® we made it easy to upload controlling data in CSV or Excel files to Next®.  



REST API makes it easy and secure to upload CSV and Excel file to Next® in the cloud



Sometimes these controlling tables are big, and then it's not ideal to transfer the entire table each time you need to make an update.

That is why we have added an API with three new methods - Add, Remove, and Update.




Using XML or JSON, you can now easily maintain the controlling data in Next®.      


REST API makes it easy and secure to do CRUD in the cloud
