Ability to call a restful service directly from a mobile application.

Not right now

When creating an integration between a third party that has a restful api, Outsystems currently requires the mobile device to contact the Outsystems server.  the Outsystems server then performs the rest request and then passes the data down to the mobile device.  For a mobile device that is simply consuming the data from this api request, Outsystems is adding additional overhead.  On a slower cellular network, depending on the size of the data being transmitted, calling the rest request directly could help improve performance.

Hi Jason,

Sorry for the late reply, but we are not planning on delivering this in the near future.

The investment to do this properly is too big for the return and for the upcoming new features that we have in mind. Because of this, I’m marking this idea as “not right now”.

Nonetheless, thank you very much for your idea and keep it coming.

If you believe we missed some context that would change our perception about it, please give us more details about why you would need this and for what is the use case.
