Table fields - Webhooks/Loops/API requests
DocuWare enabled table fields a few years back but never included a better work with table fields. For example there is no way to export table fields to external database without creating a data record from internal DW database. There also is not any solution to send the table field data through API request in workflow or webhooks.
Generally it would be nice to have the same possibility with table fields as with regular type fields.
thank you very much for your feedback.
Regarding the export of table data to an external database:
So far, we have not planned anything in this direction. Therefore, I would be happy to find out more on the use cases.
Regarding table data in webhooks and web services requests:
We have deliberately not included table fields in webhooks and web service requests. The reasons for this decision were:
A table can contain up to 1000 rows and 50 columns. This means that a lot of data would be transferred. For this type of integrations, it is typically not recommended to transfer such large amounts of data.
Table data is a data matrix. It can be provided in a variety of formats and structures. It is hardly possible to provide a standard structure that fits the external application without any adaptations.
In most cases, it is necessary to adapt the data to the structure of the external application.
At the moment, the recommended way is to provide the necessary parameters, GUIDs and IDs to a middleware, e.g. an integration platform (iPaaS), then pull the table data and transform it there before sending it to the third-party application.
