DEVELOPERS FORUM - Django Application integrating with ARAS Innovator

gchansc - Tuesday, August 9, 2016 10:57 AM:



I got a Django Application (Python Framework) running, and I am looking into integrating with ARAS Innovator 11.


Does anyone had success or know what protocol is best-suit for this situation of integration?


Any expert suggestion or recommendation will be very useful.

Thank you very much!

Hi gchansc,

Can you provide a little more information on this integration? What type of functionality are you trying to implement?

Hi Eli,

Thank you for your reply and questions.


I am looking to see if I can getting data from Aras Innovator, such as BOM/MPP data, using some kind of connection like,  SOA/Restful Service? Is Aras suitable or support this integration?


Thank you for your expertise!

Hi gchansc,

Third party integrations typically use Aras' IOM (Innovator Object Model) to request data from the server using JavaScript or C#. I don't have any specific samples for integrating Aras with Django at this time.

I recommend contacting the Aras Community team - they should be able to provide more information or put you in touch with someone on the Aras Professional Services team.

It is not recommended in the Programers Guide, but SOAP API seems to be available.

"not recommended" I don't think Aras discourages it.

It's the way to go if you are not running on a .net framework.

You can use a SOAP client library for Python :

Look at this thread : www.aras.comhttp:/.../648.aspx

Pascal Morenton from France made a simple but efficient integration between Catia and Aras Innovator using Visual Basic but without using the IOM. Pure SOAP request !
