    Hi

    Does anyone have experience of creating a connection between SSA and an external application so that an API can be used to pull data from SSA?

    Thanks
    Chris

    I do Chris!  You can retrieve the IDs of the current selection within SSA, if that is what you are after.  What are you trying to achieve?

    Sorry I was too late, but for anyone else who is interested

    Have a look at the Spatial Services provided by Spectrum
    https://docs.precisely.com/docs/sftw/spectrum/22.1/en/webhelp/Spatial/Spatial/source/Development/devguide/services/introduction.html
    https://docs.precisely.com/docs/sftw/spectrum/22.1/en/webhelp/Spatial/Spatial/source/Development/devguide/services/introduction_conref.html

    REST Feature services are probably what you are after
    https://docs.precisely.com/docs/sftw/spectrum/22.1/en/webhelp/Spatial/Spatial/source/Development/devguide/rest/feature.html

    you can run SQL queries to extract data using searchbysql

    I might have had the wrong idea, but was thinking more on the lines of interacting with the SSA front end directly - that is, dynamic linking - via the Precisely Applinking tool or similar (which we at DMM managed to make use of in our GISLink product, hence why I was keen to espouse my knowledge of this option!).  The following is a link to some information on the Precisely tool, for anyone wanting to go down that path:
