Use as a backend

Post by majkinetor »

I would like to use Mayan DMS as a DMS backend. How complete is its REST support ? Is any operation doable otherwise via web UI possible via REST interface ? I would implement custom interface for the features that my app needs, so I would use it in a sort of a headless way (I don't really need its interface although it might come handy for visual inspection of the system).

Please let me know if you think this idea is fasable or should I have any other concerns.

We are currently implementing this, and no the REST API does not do everything you can do through the UI. You can do, probably, 70-80% of stuff, but not everything. At least that I have been able to figure out. We are currently attempting to use it as a pip installable library, and putting GraphQL in-front of it to do federated graphql queries to it.

Hi, I am also looking to implement something similar, was thinking if you might be interested in sharing resources/information if our end goal is going to be similiar.
