To enhance security during this process, we've introduced the <code>adskMask</code> feature.</p> <h2>What is <code>adskMask</code>?</h2> <p>The <code>adskMask</code> flag, when set to <strong>true</strong> in your <a href="In the APS documentation here: https://aps.autodesk.com/en/docs/design-automation/v3/reference/http/workitems-POST/#body-structure">WorkItem</a> (WI) payload, masks all URLs and credentials in the debug logs (<code>report.log</code>). This feature complements the existing <a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/blog/using-argument-adskdebug-troubleshot-failure-job-design-automation"><code>adskDebug</code></a> argument by ensuring sensitive information is obfuscated during debugging.  </p> <h2>Example Usage</h2> <p>Here's how to use <code>adskMask</code> in your WI JSON payload:</p> <pre> <code class="language-json">{ "activityId": "AutoCAD.RefgetTests+Latest", "arguments": { "input": { "url": "https://developer.api.autodesk.com/data/v1/projects/yyyy", "headers": { "Authorization": "Bearer xxx" } }, "result": { "verb": "put", "url": "das://intermediate/result.txt" }, "adskDebug": { "uploadJobFolder": true }, "adskMask": true }, "LimitProcessingTimeSec": 600 } </code></pre><p>With <code>adskMask</code> enabled, all input and output URLs, along with headers containing credentials, will be masked in the debug log.</p> <p> </p> <h2>Why Use <code>adskMask</code>?</h2> <p>This feature is a straightforward enhancement to secure your development process by masking potentially sensitive information during job debugging. It was initially used internally at Autodesk and, given its utility, has been made available for all developers working with Design Automation APIs.</p> <h2>Implementation</h2> <p>To use <code>adskMask</code>, include it in your WI (Work Item) payload as illustrated. This is applicable for any Design Automation engine, not just Revit.</p> <p>This introduction of <code>adskMask</code> is part of Autodesk's commitment to improving developer tools and ensuring the <a href="https://www.autodesk.com/trust/compliance">security</a> of your workflows.</p> <p>Twitter: <a href="https://twitter.com/micbeale" title="twitter">@micbeale</a></p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-categories field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/apis-and-services/design-automation-api" hreflang="en">Design Automation API</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/apis-and-services/design-automation-api-revit" hreflang="en">Design Automation API for Revit</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/apis-and-services/authentication" hreflang="en">Authentication</a></div> </div> Wed, 03 Apr 2024 01:23:17 +0000 bealem 3337 at https://aps.autodesk.com Extract physical information using Design Automation https://aps.autodesk.com/blog/extract-physical-information-using-design-automation <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Extract physical information using Design Automation</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span>adam.nagy</span></span> <div class="node__date"> <p class="dhig-typography-eyebrow dhig-mt-0">10 Apr 2024</p> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-author field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <article role="article" class="node node__author view-mode__list"> <div class="node__content"> <div class="field field--name-field-primary-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/styles/author/public/2019-03/facepic_400x400.jpg?itok=9P3Y9-bq" width="200" height="200" alt="" loading="lazy" class="image-style-author" /> </div> <a href="/author/adam-nagy">Adam Nagy</a> </div> </article> </div> </div> <div class="block-share"> <p>Share</p> <div class="a2a_kit a2a_kit_size_30 addtoany_list" data-a2a-url="https://aps.autodesk.com/blog/extract-physical-information-using-design-automation" data-a2a-title="Extract physical information using Design Automation"><a class="a2a_button_linkedin"></a><a class="a2a_button_facebook"></a><a class="a2a_button_twitter"></a></div></div> <div class="field field--name-field-primary-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/default/files/2024-04/physicalinfo.png" width="1456" height="916" alt="" loading="lazy" /> </div> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>If the <a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/en/docs/model-derivative/v2/developers_guide/overview/">Model Derivative API</a> does not extract the information you need from the file type you are working with, you might be able to use one of the <a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/en/docs/design-automation/v3/developers_guide/overview/">Design Automation</a> engines instead.</p> <p>In this case you have to be familiar with the <strong>API</strong> of the specific <strong>engine</strong> -

The BC write API is a large set with the total of 47 endpoints. With the <a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/blog/buildingconnected-api-joins-aps-family">read endpoints from the first release</a>, the API covers most of BC entities and operations. It allows you to build more comprehensive integration applications. The companion API TradeTapp also released first set this time. So you will find they are now under the APS category: <i>BuildingConnected &amp; TradeTapp APIs. </i><a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/blog/building-connected-api-now-reinforced-tradetapp-api"> Another blog</a> talks about TradeTapp API.</p> <p>Below is the list of new capabilities added in this release:</p> <ul><li>create/update/delete projects, project costs, and project members.  </li> <li>Create/update/delete bidpackages, create bid, and create/delete bid attachments.</li> <li>Create project bid forms and scope specific bid forms, and create/update/delete form items</li> <li>Create/update/delete opportunities.</li> <li>Get Certification</li> <li>Get Office</li> <li>Create/update/read project &amp; opportunity pair.</li> </ul><p><b>API Technical Notes</b></p> <p>The new APIs are in same version (v2) as previous read API:</p> <p> <i>/construction/buildingconnected/v2</i>.</p> <p>For those who are just getting started with Building Connected API, all APIs currently supports 3-legged authentication only. (i.e., the API access right is the same as the user in the UI.) Different levels of subscription affect the API access level:</p> <ul><li>Users, Offices, Certificates --- no subscription required</li> <li>Opportunities --- you will need Bid Board Pro subscription</li> <li>All others --- you will need BuildingConnected Pro subscription</li> <li>Opportunity-Project pair --- this is special. It requires both Bid Board Pro and Building Connected Pro</li> </ul><p>The new APIs include quite a few endpoints for <b>batch operation</b>. The payload schema of each verb is slightly different:</p> <ul><li>batch-create is an array of new entity attributes.</li> <li>batch-delete is an array of existing entity id.</li> <li>batch-patch is a dictionary with key (entity id) and value (its attributes to update).</li> </ul><p>You can create new a project with/without template. You could also copy bid package data during the project creation. Creating a project with opportunity will generate an opportunity-project pair. The project can be linked with ACC project as long as this user is member to the ACC project. The project files could also be shared within ACC folder if this user has permission to upload file to the ACC folder. The project can be also unlinked to ACC project.</p> <p>Creating a new bid with same invite will generate a new bid version. Steps to create a bid attachment is similar to when uploading file to Autodesk Platform Services (APS) (OSS and Autodesk Construction Cloud folder: i.e., get S3 signed url, upload file stream, and finally create bid (version) with the attachment to complete the uploading. Changing attachments or items of forms means you are creating a new revision of bid.</p> <p>Create opportunities API is analogousto the steps to create an opportunity manually in bid board; when created using API, the source will be "API", while creating through the UI, "Manual". If an opportunity is from invite of bid package, the source type will be "BuildingConnected" which is categorized "domestic opportunity"  v.s. all other types which are categorized "foreign opportunity". When creating opportunities from bid packages through the API, it will be processed by BuildingConnected when a bid package is published. This API release does not support publishing bid packages.</p> <p>The group parent opportunities must be created directly (foreign) and cannot be converted to or from any other type of opportunity. An opportunity cannot be both a parent and a child.</p> <p>Opportunity-project pair APIs provides the way to get all pairs or a single pair. However, the API to create a pair is only to relink a project from a child opportunity to a group parent. The modifying API is only to transfer the linked project of child opportunity to its group opportunity and remove the existing pair of group opportunity .</p> <p>section+description+type uniquely identifies an item of project bid forms. section+description +code+type uniquely identifies an item of scope-specific bid forms. When creating/modifying the items, ensure these fields can identify the item you want to manipulate.</p> <p>Certificate types and agencies are both for BC and TradeTapp (in enterprise business certifications). The new API only provides the endpoint to get available types or agencies. They are managed internally. To create new one, you need to <a href="https://autodeskfeedback.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0JQRzXzDhGQlMCq">follow this form </a>to register. The goal is to provide a way for general contracts of sub contracts to let us know about an agency or types that we don't have on file.</p> <p>Rate limit of most write API is 60 rpm. Batch endpoints are 10 rpm. If the application combines read and write endpoint, the global limit would be 1000 rpm, but the write endpoints will only have a limited contribution towards this limit since their rate limit is 60 rpm or 10 rpm.</p> <p><b>Documentation</b></p> <p>The <a href="https://aps.autodesk.com/en/docs/buildingconnected/v2/developers_guide/field_guide/buildingconnected/">Field Guide</a> is updated with the new abilities, domestic v.s. foreign opportunities and other new notes.</p> <p>A few more tutorials are provided.
