FileMaker Data API
How It Works
BrilliantSync uses a FileMaker technology called ESS (External SQL Sources) and an ODBC (Open Database Connectivity) connection to a reliable master external sync database in the cloud. Once you setup the connection to BrilliantSync using a built-in wizard you read, edit, or create records in a BrilliantSync table data and exchange information with the external solution without the need to write complicated code with JSON, cURL or the need to understand REST APIs. BrilliantSync takes care of all that work for you behind the scenes. You can work with familiar FileMaker tables, fields, and script steps.
This allows you to take advantage of other great technology available. No longer do you need to reinvent the wheel and build everything in FileMaker. Each tool can work as intended. FileMaker deals with records and record-sets via ESS. There’s no Custom Web Publishing (CWP) service to worry about (or security issues), no FileMaker PHP API deprecation issues, and no web scripts to install on your FileMaker server. BrilliantSync also makes it possible to scale FileMaker solutions to thousands of public users beyond what WebDirect can handle and without license fees.
You get a robust sync solution that keeps the data in WordPress for fast access, updating and searching… and will work even if your FileMaker server is offline or rebooting.
- BrilliantSync integrations require initial consulting services for successful implementation as even “simple databases” need fields to be mapped, business logic to be defined, and almost always require some enhancements to be "sync ready."
- We recommend budgeting $6,400+ for initial setup depending on the complexity of your project.
- BrilliantSync starts at $100/month for WordPress content/users and Gravity Forms data sync.
- WooCommerce support starts at $150/month based on site traffic/sync volume.
- Pricing for additional connectors depends on use case/sync volume.
