Search By Key

You can configure a REST web service query on a resource key. When the request includes a key value, you do not have to reference the column name in the query.
Use the following format to search for the number 64 in the resource key for a resource called CUSTOMER:
http://myServer:8095/DataIntegrationService/RESTSERVICE/REST_Web_Service/CUSTOMER/64
The URI includes a resource name and a resource key value:
/CUSTOMER/64
The query does not need to reference the name of the column that is the key.
When you query by resource key, the web service can retrieve the customer by a URI associated with the key. You can view the URI for the specific row in the response message key value. In the following example, the key is C_CUSTKEY and the key value is 64:
<tns:CUSTOMER xmlns:tns="http:////www.informatica.com"> <tns:
C_CUSTKEY
url="
http://my Server:8095/DataIntegrationService/RestService/REST_Web_Service/CUSTOMER/64
">64</tns:C_CUSTKEY> <tns:C_NAME>Customer#000000064</tns:C_NAME> <tns:C_ADDRESS>MbCeGY20kaKK3oalJD,OT</tns:C_ADDRESS> <tns:C_NATIONKEY>3</tns:C_NATIONKEY> <tns:C_PHONE>13-558-731-7204</tns:C_PHONE> <tns:C_ACCTBAL>-646.64</tns:C_ACCTBAL> <tns:C_MKTSEGMENT>BUILDING</tns:C_MKTSEGMENT> <tns:C_COMMENT> Customer has an angry dog in the yard </tns:C_COMMENT> </tns:CUSTOMER>
