    About JotForm Engine

    Asked by ashish shukla on November 28, 2011 at 01:44 AM

    Hello,

    With Jot Form Engine, we got the full source code. I have some questions regarding that.


    - With this source code, do we get any documentation or API details?

    - Can we Create Users dynemically by using Jot Form Engine API Or We need to customize the code? Because users are already registered in our site, so we want to register user automatically in our Jotform Engine.

    - Can we add some sample forms in Jotform engine? So, user can directly choose it and edit those.

    - Are there any APIs available to access the Form Reports for each users? Or we need to create some functions (API) which will provide reports details.

    - Will we get any documentation\help file to customize the JotForm theme?

    - Can we directly access My SQL DB(which is setup on your server) from our server 's website?

    Thanks in advance,
    Ashish Shukla

    No, there is no documentation or API. 

    - Can we Create Users dynemically by using Jot Form Engine API Or We need to customize the code? Because users are already registered in our site, so we want to register user automatically in our Jotform Engine.

    There is no API. But you can make a call to the code from an external code. So, it should be pretty simple. 

    - Can we add some sample forms in Jotform engine? So, user can directly choose it and edit those.

    Yes, you will get full source code. So, you can change the existing form sample or add your own. 

    - Are there any APIs available to access the Form Reports for each users? Or we need to create some functions (API) which will provide reports details.

    Yes, you will need to create it yourself. There is no API on JotForm. 

    - Will we get any documentation\help file to customize the JotForm theme?

    No, there are no documentation or help files on that. Each theme is basically a simple CSS file. You can look at the files for existing themes to see how it works. 

    - Can we directly access My SQL DB(which is setup on your server) from our server 's website?

    Certainly. You will have full access since it will be installed on your server.
