Create wrappers from web services and extensions

Not right now

When integrating with external systems you will probably use web services or extension methods, and you'll most likely be needing to set some parameters like the URL, timeout, credentials, etc. and have some error handling to catch exceptions.

You'll probably create an user action to wrap the external system call, with the same input and output parameters as the referenced action, plus the logic to set the parameters and error handling referred to earlier.

I think it could be nice if a wrapper could be automatically created by dragging and dropping a web service or extension method to the user action section.

This would be just sweet! Been through a lot of refactoring right now and this would be a life-saver!

Not right now

Hi Fernando,

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.
