A REST connector is called by an activity with the Activity type set to
Connect that applies to a class derived from the
Work- base class. Such activities can be referenced in an Integrator
shape in a flow rule.
To start a REST connection and execute a Connect REST connector rule, create an activity that:
- Creates a named page for the class that the connector rule applies to. This page becomes the primary page for the connector.
- Sets property values and input parameter values that serve as the input for the connector's message sent to the external application.
- Calls the connector rule. This step uses the Connect-REST method. The step page is the primary page of the connector.
- Processes the reply message that the connector rule receives.
