Using POST Method With REST Service Integration

Last Updated: 03/27/2018 Introduced in Version: 4.0

This tutorial demonstrates how to define custom Rest Headers for Post method with Rest Service Integration.

Example:

In this example we are going to create a simple Rest Service Integration with Post method. Then, we are going to add custom Rest Header to the Service Integration. Finally, we are going to create a simple Flow to test sending JSON object with our custom Rest Header.

We begin in System > Integrations > External Services in the Portal with clicking Add REST Service Integration on Folder Actions Panel.

 

In the resulting window we define Service Name and Service URL.  Also, we define Service Input Method Post and Service Content Type Json.

Then, we scroll down and define Data to send. When finished, we click SAVE to save and continue.

 

Lastly, we are going to create a simple Flow to test our Rest Service Integration. In the Designer Folder we click Create Flow on Folder Actions Panel.

 

 

We Name the Flow and click CREATE to proceed to the Flow Designer.

 

 

In the Flow Designer we add our Service step from Integrations > My Integrations > REST Services category.

 

We can see that our Data to Send is available as Inputs to the Rest Service Step

 

 

We can click Debug Flow on the top panel of the Flow Designer to test our Rest Service request.
