The HTTP connector for Jitterbit Harmony Cloud Studio provides an interface for entering user-provided input such as a URL to create an HTTP connection. That connection provides the foundation to configure associated HTTP connector activities that interact with the connection. Together, a specific HTTP connection and its activities are referred to as an HTTP endpoint.
This connector is used to first configure an HTTP connection, establishing access to an HTTP or HTTPS web service (including RESTful web services), and then used to configure one or more HTTP activities (GET, PUT, POST, or DELETE, or Custom activities) associated with that connection as a source or target within an operation or script. The HTTP connector allows you to consume REST endpoints as part of an operation.
Whether the activity can be used as a source or a target in an operation or a script depends on the specific web service and the request and response structures, if present. For more information about what determines if an activity can be used as a source or target, see Parts of an Operation in Operation Creation and Configuration.
Accessing the Connector
The HTTP connector is accessed from the Connectivity tab of the design component palette by using the Show dropdown to filter on Connectors.
Once a connection is configured, activities associated with the endpoint are available by using the Show dropdown to filter on Endpoints and then clicking the HTTP connection block:
