IFWIS Core API Documentation

Each controller provides one or more actions (list, detail, edit, delete, etc.). Select a controller to learn more.

Simple Objects

Although one may use these simple controllers for data viewing, they are designed primarily for creating, editing and deleting data by other programs built on top of IFWIS Core.

Node is the generic term we use to describe a single discrete piece of information that occurs at a unique place and/or time. It may also hold unique concepts or terms. Examples include: a wildlife observation, a county or a species.
Who may access this node. Privileges are set by Role including Create, Read, Update, Delete, Execute, Publish and Set Permissions.
Nodes may be Versioned depending on settings. All nodes have at least one version. This allows simultaneous editing and editing of published data with approval required.
Versions may or may not require approval of individuals to be published. Some versions origins automatically require approval of certain users. Users with edit or create privileges may also request that other users approve a version before it may be published.
This table tracks any relationship between a version and any nodes to which it is related accomodating building lists, sublists, one-to-one relationships, one-to-many relationships, many-to-many relationships, hierarchical relationships (org charts) and echelonic-non heirarchical shrub relationships (family trees of royalty).
