Hi there, 

 

Has anyone tried external Api for Posting data to external API

I tried to use it but noticed it only tried to retrive data from the endpoint.

Is it only used for GET data?

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

ExternalApi activity can perform a POST call too. You can define whatever valid json you want to send as POST body in the Customize Parameter section under Inbound Mapping tab. You can view the POST body that will be used for the request under POST body template section (which is greyed out and is read-only). If there is something in that section, it means externalApi activity will do a POST call.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

The activity also can do HTTP POST to web services.

 

You can try:

* Define any query (can have record count 0)

* Then define any field mapping in the outbound mapping

This then shall trigger a POST call.

 

Thanks,

David
