By default the Forge credentials could be defined with the following environment variables:

FORGE_CLIENT_ID=<your client id>
FORGE_CLIENT_SECRET=<your client secret>

You can define a custom header to be sent with each Design Automation requests to the Forge API. The custom header is only enabled if the engine is deprecated.


The custom header follow pattern x-my-custom-header: engine value is {0}. (The value {0} is replaced with the engine+version.) The header gonna be x-my-custom-header and the value engine value is Autodesk.Revit+2023 when using the engine Autodesk.Revit+2023.


This repository contains each sample of the Autodesk Step-by-Step Tutorial.

API Reference

The package use the namespace Autodesk.Forge.Oss.DesignAutomation.


DesignAutomationService class contain the methods to interact with the Oss and Design Automation API. Internaly uses the ParameterArgumentService to convert a class with Attributes to convert in the Activity and WorkItem to send the request to the Design Automation API.

IDesignAutomationService designAutomationService = new MaxDesignAutomationService("AppName")
	EngineVersions = new[] { "2021" },
IDesignAutomationService designAutomationService = new AutoCADDesignAutomationService("AppName")
	EngineVersions = new[] { "24" },
IDesignAutomationService designAutomationService = new InventorDesignAutomationService("AppName")
	EngineVersions = new[] { "2021" },
IDesignAutomationService designAutomationService = new RevitDesignAutomationService("AppName")
	EngineVersions = new[] { "2021" },


Initialize AppBundle by creating and uploading the zip file to the Design Automation.

await designAutomationService.Initialize("Path/AppBundle.zip");


Create the Activity and run the WorkItem and wait for the result, use the Parameters class to define the parameters of the Activity and WorkItem.

bool result = await designAutomationService.Run<Parameters>();
bool result = await designAutomationService.Run<Parameters>((parameters) => {});
Parameters parameters;
bool result = await designAutomationService.Run<Parameters>(parameters);


Delete all the resources created by the Initialize and Run. AppBundle and Activity gonna be deleted if exists.

await designAutomationService.Delete();


The Parameters class is used to define the parameters of the Activity and WorkItem using the Attributes.

  • ParameterInputAttribute - Define the input parameter of the Activity and WorkItem.
  • ParameterOutputAttribute - Define the output parameter of the Activity and WorkItem.


Base class ParameterActivityAttribute is used to update the Activity before send the request to the Design Automation API.

  • ParameterActivityClearBundleAttribute - Clear the AppBundle before update the Activity.
  • ParameterActivityInputArgumentAttribute - Define the input argument of the Activity.
  • ParameterActivityInputAttribute - Define the input parameter of the Activity.
  • ParameterActivityInputOpenAttribute - Define the input parameter of the Activity with Open file.
  • ParameterActivityLanguageAttribute - Define the language of the Activity.
  • ParameterActivityScriptAttribute - Define the script of the Activity.


Base class ParameterWorkItemAttribute is used to update the WorkItem before send the request to the Design Automation API.

  • ParameterWorkItemTimeSecAttribute - Define the timeout of the WorkItem.
