HTTP endpoints

Each application you want to integrate with using the Integration Builder is represented by an HTTP endpoint. An endpoint provides a simple way to define the base URL and authentication credentials to use when making HTTP requests from a transformation script.

If you are sending requests to an HTTPS endpoint, you must select the option to Trust self-signed certificates when configuring an endpoint.

Configure HTTP endpoints

By configuring endpoints separately, you can quickly modify all references to an endpoint across an integration rather than editing each instance of the target URL in each script.

Endpoints should refer to the base IP address and port, or hostname of the target system; an additional parameter within the scripts can append any necessary paths, and allow you to target different locations at the same endpoint.

Endpoint authentication

Integration endpoints can be defined to support basic and OAuth2 authentication. Customized OAuth2 endpoints are available for Salesforce and Slack.

Configuring an endpoint with the required configuration and credentials for OAuth2 authentication simplifies the transformation script for making HTTP requests to an API secured with OAuth2. When using an OAuth2 endpoint, the transformation script does not need to include reference to the access token URL, or any of the OAuth2 fields associated with the endpoint.

Exported communication plans do not include any OAuth information; all authorization content is cleared, and endpoints are set to "No Authorization".
