This week Fraser and Federico dive into Web service API programming in Workflow.
This episode of Canvas is sponsored by:
Many web services publish an Application Programming Interface (API) to allow other programs to work with their service.
Workflow provides two approaches to programming web APIs. The first is a series of built-in Actions that let you complete a form interface and then send the request to the web service.
Beyond that, Workflow also includes a powerful Action called Get Contents of URL that has an advanced set of capabilities for talking to REST APIs on the web directly.
Federico shares a number of great examples and Fraser brings the theory about web API programming.
