Scripted REST APIs The Scripted REST APIs feature allows application developers to build web service APIs. You can define service endpoints, query parameters, and headers for a scripted web service API, as well as scripts to manage the request and response. Scripted REST APIs generally follow the REST architecture, but may be customized to use different conventions. The following podcast offers additional information on the use of Scripted REST APIs. - topic/object https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/241479207&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=truesoundcloudobject:1;29:218file:/mnt/jenkins/workspace/dita/zoominV4_2.4.4_KCodeFreezebranch_001-test-sn-kingston-build/doc/source/integrate/custom-web-services/concept/c_CustomWebServices.dita The Automated Test Framework supports Inbound REST test steps. You can create automated tests for custom Inbound REST APIs that you create. Creating tests for your custom REST APIs simplifies upgrade testing, and makes it possible to verify modifications to a REST API are backward compatible. See Administering REST test step configurations and ATF REST test step configurations. Scripted REST core conceptsReview the Scripted REST APIs core concepts before creating your own APIs.Create a Scripted REST APICreate a Scripted REST API to define web service endpoints.Explore and document Scripted REST APIsYou can browse scripted REST APIs using the REST API Explorer and view documentation provided by scripted REST API creators.Scripted REST APIs good practicesFollow these guidelines when designing and implementing Scripted REST APIs.RESTAPIRequest - Scoped, GlobalA RESTAPIRequest object allows you to access scripted REST API request details in scripts.RESTAPIRequestBody - Scoped, GlobalA RESTAPIRequestBody object allows you to access the body content of a scripted REST API request in scripts.RESTAPIResponse - Scoped, GlobalA RESTAPIResponse object allows you to build a RESTful response to a scripted REST API request.RESTAPIResponseStream - Scoped, GlobalA RESTAPIResponseStream object allows you to write directly to the scripted REST API response stream.Scripted REST API examplesMutliple examples are available demonstrating how to create and use scripted REST APIs.
