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 Nagendra,By default, external Api only does a GET call to the external endpoint. In order to do a POST call, there has to be some json in Post Body Template section under Inbound Mapping tab in External Api activity. 1.
