What is Sage Data Exchange?
Sage Data Exchange is a JSON and XML API for Sage 100. The application allows users to create a resource, then post JSON or XML formatted data through that resource to Sage 100. Users can also define the data returned. They can do all this without needing to know much about Sage 100.
How does Sage Data Exchange Work?
Sage Data Exchange resides on your server, listening for JSON or XML requests.
When a authorized request is received, Sage Data Exchange queries your Sage 100, and responds to the request.
Post requests (update and create) are handled by the Sage 100 native business object framework.
That means that User Defined Fields can be read, and written to, via Sage Data Exchange. Business Object overrides, written by Sage 100 Developers, are engaged as well.
