About Connect REST rules

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 relatively simple REST (Representational State Transfer) architectural style for consuming information exposed by RESTful web services. REST services typically present this data as JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) or XML types.


Use the Application Explorer or the Integration Overview landing page to see Connect REST rules in your application. Use the Records Explorer to list all Connect REST rules that are available to you. To access the Integration Overview landing page, select Configure > Integration > Connector Definitions & Simulations.


Connect REST rules can be created directly in the Records Explorer in Integration-Connectors.

Configure new Connect REST rules directly using the Connect REST rule form.

The REST connector supports sending and receiving attachments with the HTTP response message.

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