We are currently working with some Large IBM customers with legacy apps requiring integration with SugarCRM.  Their preferred method is via JAVA connector and we have recommended the SugarCRM REST API for a number of reasons including performance and ease of enhancement.

Generally SugarCRM REST API allows you to use both POST and GET request method for the same function.

As the POST method claims to be faster, we will use it for the example below:

    I don’t understand why sugarCRM haven’t implemented the REST api following the JSON standard, for example the JSON needs to be ordered in Sugar, which breaks one of the first requirements of JSON: An object is an unordered set of name/value pairs.


    The code url provided in this forum does not work on Sugar CRM community edition 6.5, it returns “{“name”:”Invalid Login”,”number”:10,”description”:”Login attempt failed please check the username and password”}”
