Using Extensibility, the Web Client can communicate with external applications and display data in the interface.

  • The Web Client executes a feature set or object function-based action, which is fully access controlled.

  • The Web Client exposes methods that implement the WebClientExtensibility client API.

    For example, the WebClientExtensibility API can be used to display data from an external application in a Web Client feature set through a URL connection.

  • The URL calls RESTful Database Wrapper Services to connect to the external database and displays the application in the Web client in an embedded iframe.

Hexagon recommends that custom client Extensibility code should always be hosted on a server in a different domain. This can mitigate any browser security concerns.
