To make REST requests, you can either invoke a configured REST operation or invoke a REST operation dynamically by using a configured REST operation as a template and replacing any of the parameters at runtime.
There are several ways to invoke a REST operation.
- Configure REST hosts and associate REST operations with them by running the Add a REST Host and Add a REST Operation workflows. The registered REST hosts and REST operations are persistent and can be found in the Inventory and Resources views.
- Invoke a REST operation without previously configuring REST hosts and adding REST operations by running the Invoke a dynamic REST operation workflow from . With this workflow, you can provide REST host base URL and operation parameters. The data is not persistent and is not available in the Inventory and Resources views.
- Configure REST hosts, associate REST operations with them, and use the configured REST hosts and REST operations as templates for further use, by running the Invoke a REST host with dynamic params and Invoke a REST operation with dynamic params workflows from . You can replace some of the parameters of already configured REST hosts and REST operations when you run the workflows. The original REST hosts and REST operations are not affected.
