GoAnywhere can connect to RESTful Web Services. A REST connection can be configured as a Resource in GoAnywhere and is used to transfer data or files. Projects in GoAnywhere can also connect to REST resources and then automate the processing of files or data that is returned from the REST request. For example, GoAnywhere can connect to a REST Web Service to download a JSON file, parse the data, and then insert that data into a database.
REST Tasks make it easy to create POST, PUT, GET, OPTIONS, PATCH, and DELETE requests.
Configuring REST Resources in GoAnywhere MFT saves time and provides additional security through separation of duties. After a resource is defined, a Project Designer can create a task and just refer to the REST Resource without needing to know the confidential login credentials. GoAnywhere supports Basic, Digest, NTLM, and JSON Web Token authentication. Additional headers can be added to REST requests to support OAUTH authentication or to supply custom information to the RESTful web service.
