Workflow REST API

Workflow REST API


The Workflow REST API allows you to manage Forms currently in Workflow.

Base URL

Header (required)
Authorization: Basic {CompanyID}:{Username}:{Password}:{API Sync Key}
Content-Type: application/json
Note: Authorization Header above is the same as all other Mobile Forms REST API calls. 
Note: API Developers can use OAuth 2.0 Authentication instead of the Basic Authentication. The OAuth 2.0 Authentication uses the Client Credentials Grant Type and requires the Company have a Client ID and a Client Secret generated in the Mobile Forms Portal to make web service calls to the REST API Endpoints. You can contact the Professional Services team at to implement OAuth 2.0 Authentication.
