This section describes new PowerCenter features in version 10.4.0.
Effective in version 10.4.0, the HTTP transformation also includes the following methods for the final URL construction: SIMPLE PATCH, SIMPLE PUT, and SIMPLE DELETE.
You can perform a partial update and the input data does not need to be a complete body with the SIMPLE PATCH method. You can use it to update data from input port as a patch to the resource.
You can perform a complete replacement of a document with the SIMPLE PUT method. You can create data from an input port as a single block of data to the HTTP server. If the data already exists, you can update data from an input port as a single block of data to the HTTP server.
You can delete data from the HTTP server with the SIMPLE DELETE method.
You can also parameterize the base URL for the HTTP transformation.
Previously, you could specify the final URL construction only for the following two methods: SIMPLE GET and SIMPLE POST. You also could not parameterize the final URL for the HTTP transformation.
