HTTP Methods

HTTP Methods

When you create a REST Web Service Consumer transformation, you select the HTTP method that the Data Integration Service uses in the request message. You cannot change the HTTP method after you create the transformation.
You configure the transformation to use one of the following HTTP methods:
Get
Retrieves a resource or a collection of resources from the web service. For example, you can retrieve a table of products or retrieve information about one product.
Post
Sends data to a web service. Use the Post method to create a resource or collection of resources. For example, you can add the details of a new store transaction.
Put
Replaces a resource or a collection of resources. If the data does not exist, the Put method posts the data. For example, you can update a customer shipping address.
Delete
Deletes a resource or a collection of resources. For example, you can delete the record of an employee that no longer works for an organization.
