Calling All APIs! Scripting Comes to Microapps!
Tuesday, May 4
Microapps are great – they allow us to package up ‘slices’ of functionality and deliver them to end users via Citrix Workspace’s intelligent feed. Rather than hunting through multiple browser tabs of SaaS apps to check for updates and perform actions, the user can quickly access frequently used features from a single user interface. Custom HTTP integrations allow microapps to interact with any well-behaved REST API. But what about badly-behaved REST APIs? And APIs that are not RESTful at all? Scripting to the rescue!
