Hello everyone. I just arrived, and am trying to get around. The question blow interests me the most currently. Maybe someone can shed light on this matter. Thanks.

I just discovered mindmaster and am interested in integrating my mind maps within my own infrastructure. API V1 provides a broad selection of methods, that seem to fill my needs. API V2 falls short of providing methods of querying maps besides authentication and export functionality.

What are future plans of extending API V2 to match or surpass functionality provided with API V1?

    Hi - sorry to get back a bit late, a large portion of the team was out for the holidays.

    I've had some back and forth discussion with our dev team on this subject the last few days. Long story short, there are unfortunately no plans to extend the functionality of API v2 to what was possible with API v1. In fact, the team are already looking to make v3 publicly available by the end of next year.

    So unfortunately, I'm sorry to say there will be no updates to MindMeister's API functionality any time soon. That being said, the team was very interested in hearing your use case and understanding which specific methods of querying maps would be most essential within your infrastructure.

    Best,

    Andrew

    Hi @itsafire , welcome to the community and thanks for the great question! I'm actually unsure of the current plans for extending API v2 for MindMeister. I know that v1 is deprecated and "not recommended" by our team, but it still shouldn't break anything if you want to give it a try. However, V1 will be finally sunsetted in 2023, so I think your question is a super valid point. I've just forwarded it on to our product team, who should have some more insight and answers! I'll let you know when I have more info.

    Best wishes and happy holidays,

    Andrew

    Thank you so much for the information. I will check out mind meister next year.

    A simple answer to the devs question: I like to have read/write access to all attributes of my data. Thus I would be able to automatically import/export to other systems like for example Omni Focus.
