QUESTION

Is calling a REST web service from AWE available in EFT Enterprise?

ANSWER

Yes. The ability to invoke a RESTful web service is included in the EFT Event Rules, documented in Invoke Web Server from URI Action. The fields in the action, such as Type, are only pre-populated if you provide a WSDL URI so that it can pull the various known values from the service description.

Keep in mind that if you’ve created, defined, or modified any variables in an AWE task, the variables and their values will be passed back to any subsequent actions in EFT. As noted in the online help, executing the AWE task requires at least one “if action FAILED then” action to be defined, including checking the box to stop processing the rule; otherwise EFT will launch the AWE process in a separate thread and it will run while EFT moves on with the rest of the rule.
