I have a use case where we want to send data to a 3rd party endpoint as part of a workflow, however, it seems like this isn't currently possible. I'm aware of the External API action within workflows but it looks like this is limited to GET requests rather than POST. 

 

Has anyone found a solution for this use case?

Edit to original question: it actually looks like it's the request structure that's the problem. The API endpoint I'm calling is expecting a flat JSON structure, whereas the Post Body Template that's generated is nested

Hi Alex,

 

You can do both GET and POST using external API. Please refer to some recent posts on that.

ACS Externa API 

Thanks,

David
