New tutorial!  How to register custom platforms in Sugar instances

Blog Post created by Lauren Schaefer Employee on Jan 18, 2018

 

In Sugar 8 / Spring '18, Sugar administrators can now configure API platforms using the Administration panel. The Platform extension is still available if you want to register a custom API platform as part of a Module Loadable Package.

If you have a REST API integration with Sugar, you are likely using a custom platform as part of that integration. Beginning in the Winter ‘18 release, Sugar is enforcing a rule that all custom platforms must be registered in each Sugar instance where a custom platform is used.  For more details on the rule itself, see Matt’s earlier blog post: Unknown platforms to be restricted in Winter ‘18 release.

 

The bad news?  This change that requires all custom platforms to be registered probably affects you.

 

The good news?  There is an easy fix, and I’ve written a tutorial that walks you step-by-step through how to implement the fix.
