Hey everyone,


On FME Server (2021.2.6) I have resources that I want to make available on an HTML page. I want users to be able click on the link and immediately download the data that's in the resource folder:


Seems like a pretty standard deal.

Hi @bkgg,

You can do this by creating a workspace to retrieve the data from the FME Server Resources by using the FMEServerResourceConnector transformer or by calling the FME Server REST API using the HTTPCaller transformer. After you’ve created the workspace you can publish it to FME Server and create a workspace app that can be shared as a URL to users or by generating a webhook URL (see Run or Share a Workspace>Other Ways to Run this Workspace>Webhook URL).

Thanks Tim. This ought to do the trick.
