We’re upgrading from Vantage 8.03 to Epicor Cloud 10.2.x and trying to establish a parallel with our existing Vantage API calls to the new E10 variants.
We have several C# applications that talk to the Vantage web service endpoints to support our internal operations. Those were easy to establish inside of Visual Studio by simply adding Service/Web References to them and calling them in code.
In E10 however, I’m surprised to find that I can’t use the built-in Visual Studio reference options to connect to E10’s REST API endpoints. I’m finding all sorts of NSwag type layers for client code generation, but why…?
Can someone explain why, for a completely new E10 Microsoft .NET stack on Microsoft Azure that I can leverage Microsoft Visual Studio to easily add these references and call them in code as per every other API I’ve encountered before? Seems like there’s an opportunity for VS here, right?
I’m ranting a bit, but definitely want to learn why if anyone can share. Thanks!
