External REST API post need xml file
Question
Application Type
Reactive

HI Outsystems Enthusisats,

I am trying to achieve the following:

Using OutSystems application I am uploading xml file, with help of external Api i need to upload it.

External Api only accepts xml file. Is there any way to send  xml file to the api, instead of JSon?

Thanks,

Anushree.


Hi Anushree,

a REST api always will send JSON and not XML. Soap uses XML. 

A REST api can has a json-field that contains XML.

Another option it create an xml using xmlrecords extension and send it using a HTTP Post 

Regards,


Hans
