Connect REST rules


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Connect REST rules support interactions between the Pega Platform and other systems over the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP).

Use REST connector rules in an application to leverage the Representational State Transfer (REST) architectural style for consuming information exposed by RESTful web services. REST services typically present this data as JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) or XML types.

A Connect HTTP rule is an instance of the Rule-Connect-REST rule type. Connect REST rules belong to the Integration-Connectors category.

Connect REST rules can be referenced in an Integrator shape of a flow rule, or on the Definition tab of a Data Page rule, as the source of data for the contents of the data page.

The REST connector supports sending and receiving attachments with the HTTP response message. For information about how to handle attachments, see Using attachments with SOAP, dotNet, and HTTP connectors and services.

To list the Connect REST rules in your application, use the Application Explorer or click Configure Integration Connector Definitions & Simulations .

To list all Connect REST rules that are available to you, use the Records Explorer.
