Integrating a FileMaker Calendar with Alexa

Hello there,

I'm trying to do something probably way above my league and that is to integrate a FileMaker DB with Alexa. The general intent is to use a calendar type set of activities in the FileMaker DB and have Alexa make calls to it as if it was a calendar.

My boss is an avid FileMaker user, and he keeps all his records in FM DB's, and has tasked me with trying to figure this one out. Any advice is welcome, as I am trying to get my bearings here.

Thanks!

From your description, it looks like you should consider using a web service for your Alexa skill, and put your web service endpoint in the Skill configuration. It'll be up to your web service to determine how to integrate with FileMaker. https://developer.amazon.com/docs/custom-skills/host-a-custom-skill-as-a-web-service.html
