The Flexmonster custom data source API is a communication protocol allowing you to retrieve already aggregated data from a server to Flexmonster Pivot.
To retrieve the data from the server, Flexmonster sends POST requests to the API endpoints in JSON format.
All requests have
type properties in the request body, where
type is a type of request. Types of requests can be distinguished by the URL path and
|<url>/handshake||(optional) the first request to establish a connection between the client and server sides|
|<url>/fields||request for all fields with their types|
|<url>/members||request for all members of the field|
|<url>/select||request for data, can be for pivot table, flat table, and drill-through view|
