Watson Developer Cloud integrate with outsystems

Watson Developer Cloud integrate with outsystems

  
Anyone know when or will be possible to integrate the IBM Watson Developer Cloud with OutSystems like Bluemix?
Hi Pedro,
IBM Watson services are exposed through a set of REST APIs (check their documentation section on it) so there's nothing stopping you from integrating with it already.
The usual drill with these cloud services is usually:
  • Create and activate an instance of the service in bluemix (they call it "Create an Application" but it's really creating your account and bootstrapping some image templates that launch these services and supporting stack underneath). At the moment the Watson service seems to still be in Beta, so I could not activate it at IBM... until I noticed there's a particular site that supports Watson Beta. Check their info here
  • Configure your app settings there, and get the information required to interact with those services (check the Environment Variables section). This gives you most of the details that you need to invoke those REST APIs from any app (hosted in Bluemix or somewhere else such as OutSystems Platform's cloud). Once you start a new instance of the sevice, you can check access details on the dashboard (check the attached screenshot below)
  • Use the Platform's REST capabilities to invoke those services. Using their REST APIs documentation page will help you getting examples to fill in these requests, and use the authentication settings above to properly invoke those service.
Hope this helps
