Add HEAD Method to REST Integration

Not right now

I'm currently missing the HEAD method. At the project I'm currently working on, we get several REST services and some of them have the HEAD method. I would like to implement them via the REST Integration functionality.

Hi Remco,

Can you give me more context about this need and the use case?

Thank you.

Hi Hugo,

When I was working for a client which had several different teams on different technologies, there was also a team that implemented a lot of REST services and for some of them they used the HEAD method.

In order to consume these services, this method needs to be available in OutSystems.

In my eyes there are two options. Add and implement all the available methods or add the option to add missing methods by hand.

For me this idea has a lower priority, because I don't work at this client anymore and we convinced the webservice team to clone the HEAD methods as GET methods so we could use them.

Kind regards,

Remco Dekkinga

Hi Renco,

Thank you for your reply, but we are not planning on delivering this in the near future.

Although this makes sense, with the upcoming new features that we have in mind and as you said there's a workaround for this situation, we currently don't have plans to tackle this in the near future.

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.
