About REST Data Sources

Use REST data sources to connect to any Web service that supports the REST format.

After you configure a REST data source and deploy your process app, the data source is available for users to select when creating an external data source for use with Kanban boards in SBM Work Center. Users can reconfigure parameters or add new parameters and values as necessary as part of the feed definition process.

Follow these steps for basic REST data source configuration:

  1. In SBM Composer App Explorer, select Extensions.

  2. Under the application for which you want to create the REST data source, right-click REST Data Sources and select Add New Rest Data Source.
  3. Next to the REST URL field, click the Configure button.
  4. Configure the REST service, using the information in REST Service Configuration Dialog Box for guidance.
