The Context Provider allows you to get data from a defined RESTful API operation and output the entire contents to the Data Stream for contextual data. All rows in the file are made available to the output endpoint as a single event.
The Action Agent allows you to perform operations using RESTful API. This is useful when exchanging data between different applications when a RESTful API is available from the application.
- They only support JSON-based REST APIs.
- They do NOT support JArray data: the data returned by the RESTful endpoint must not contain JArray data.
The Agents require a RESTful API metadata configuration file that contains the operations, their parameters, and the output schema of the operations.
