The HTTP-REST plugin allows you to manage REST Web services by providing interaction between vRealize Orchestrator and REST hosts. You can define REST services and their operations as inventory objects by running configuration workflows, and perform REST operations on the defined objects.

The plug-in contains a set of standard workflows related to managing REST hosts and invoking REST operations. You can also generate custom workflows to automate tasks in a REST environment.

Security Hardening

Sensitive information is considered internal to the corresponding HTTP-REST plug-in objects and intended for use only in scenarios involving these objects. Therefore, specific scripting properties and methods that might be used to access sensitive information are removed. Instead, you can store sensitive information in vRealize Orchestrator configuration elements or external password vaults.
