Create a REST Endpoint Connection

The REST endpoint connector is used to create different REST endpoints to the Hero Platform_ application.

Create a Connection to REST Endpoints in Hero Platform_

  1. Open Hero Platform_.
  2. Open Integration from the navigation menu and select Connections.
  3. Click Create New Connection.

  4. Give the Connection a name and select REST Endpoint from the drop-down list for Connection type.

  5. The REST Endpoint Connection details screen pops up with fields that need to be configured.
    • Enter the endpoint url path to create the endpoint.
    • Enter a timeout value in seconds.
      • Request timeouts of over 10 seconds indicate that the Flow may need to be restructured.
      • Hero Platform_ recommends avoiding the use of heavy operations (e.g., Docker functions) inside a Flow with a REST endpoint.

  6. Click Test connection. A confirmation message is displayed if the connection has been established in Hero Platform_. 
  7. Click OK to finish saving the Connection in Hero Platform_.
