Connecting with REST APIs
A Generic REST API connector in BMC Helix Intelligent Automation enables you to connect with any applications that provide RESTful Web Services to invoke actions. Unlike other connectors, this connector does not establish a real-time communication channel with the specified endpoint. It is established every time an action is executed as part of an automation policy.
The Generic REST API connector is available for both on-premises and cloud applications.
