standalone.member namespace provides functions to manage sessions for member design.
At the beginning of every API session, the session must be started. This function must be the first function in the array. This initiates a session and will return a
session_id which can be used in subsequent calls made in the following 30 minutes to skip the verification process, thereby dramatically reducing the time to response.
The start function must always be the first function even if
session_id is provided.
|If the session should be kept on standby. If |
After authenticating using the API
response object will contain some useful information. The
session_id key can be used to make further calls to the same session, skipping authentication. The
session_expiry_time provides an approximate Unix time until the session expires. After this, the user must re-authenticate using their API
Simplified design checks can be performed without the need to run an analysis first. Provide loads, members, sections and parameters to run design checks. The API will calculate all member capacities, utility ratios and generate summary and in-depth calculation reports.
