A REST reference is a client process that is used to invoke an external REST service. The service must be running and accessible from the system where the reference resides at the time of its invocation.
REST Reference Binding REST Binding provides external connectivity for REST over HTTP. You can specify custom HTTP headers and parameters using REST binding. It supports POST, GET, PUT, PATCH, and DELETE HTTP methods. It also supports JSON, XML, and plain text message types.
Creating a REST Reference The REST reference is used to consume a REST service. The REST client has a reference which it uses to invoke a REST service. You can have multiple REST references to one REST service. References that are created using a Swagger file, cannot be modified in
TIBCO Business Studio. You can only view the details of such a reference. References that are created using the REST Reference Wizard can be modified in
TIBCO Business Studio since such references are not associated with a Swagger file which they have to adhere to.
