Create a REST message

You can send requests to a REST web service endpoint by creating a REST message record.

Before you begin

Role required: web_service_admin


  1. Navigate to System Web Services > REST Message.
  2. Click New.
  3. Complete the following fields:
    Table 1. REST Message form
    Field Description
    Name Enter a descriptive name for this message.
    Endpoint Enter the endpoint that this REST message is sent to. The endpoint value may include variables using the format ${variable}.
    Authentication type Select the type of authentication to use, if any, and the profile record that contains the user credentials.

    Outbound REST supports basic authentication and OAuth 2.0. Outbound REST supports mutual authentication with basic authentication only.

    Authentication configured here is inherited by the associated HTTP methods. You can configure authentication for each method which overrides any authentication setting at the message level.

    HTTP Headers Double-click a row in the HTTP Headers embedded list to define the header Name and Value.

    The web service provider determines which headers are supported or required.

  4. Click Submit.

    After creating the REST message, a GET HTTP method is created automatically using the values from the REST message record.

What to do next

Create or edit HTTP methods and run a request.
