The HTTP integration interface supports interactions between your Pega Platform applications and other systems through HTTP.
The following tabs are available on this form:
Use Connect HTTP rules when you want your application to send XML or string data (text) as messages to an external system without the need to comply with messaging standards or protocols like SOAP.
Connect HTTP rules provide a low-overhead, stateless alternative to SOAP.
To list the Connect HTTP rules in your application, use the Application Explorer or click.
To list all Connect HTTP rules that are available to you, use the Records Explorer.
To create Connect HTTP rules directly in your application, click.
The HTTP connector supports sending and receiving attachments with the HTTP response message. For more information, see Pega Community article How to configure a SOAP or dotNET connector to send or receive SOAP with attachments.
Connect HTTP 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.
A Connect HTTP rule is an instance of the Rule-Connect-HTTP rule type. Connect HTTP rules belong to the Integration-Connectors category.
