The Switch Web Portal
The main new feature of the Web Portal in Switch 2017 is Switch Client. You can now submit, route, lock and replace jobs from your browser using the Switch Web Portal. No need of installing any client side software.
Switch is now (finally) 64-bit
Switch is now completely 64-bit! This means that Switch will make optimal use of your system, resulting in improved handling of:
- Larger files
- Extensive collection of flows
Web Services and the Web Services Module
We now offer all functionality of the Switch Web Portal in a documented REST API. This adds an extra level of openness to Switch.
An open API like this means that anyone will be able to build a Switch Client tailored to their specific needs. This is the start of something big!
There are some API call limits to avoid abuse. To remove these limits, you can get the Web Services Module.
