Record Summary

Record Summary serves as the primary headline or title of the Entity, providing a snapshot of its content or issue. You can provide a summary for each entity you are configuring, the summary will be visible along with the entity type and operations on the summary table. The entity Summary is not populated on your integration application.

Request URL

You can provide endpoint url to create entities in your integration application. You can also select HTTP method for the endpoint url. The request method, by default, is selected as POST.

Given below is an example to create entity on any integration application using Hire2Retire's HTTP REST Connector. In this example, whenever an employee is onboarded, an entity is created to provision them on an integration application with necessary resources to perform their job, hence the New Hire/Rehire operation is selected.

You can provide the record summary and select the available attributes. After that, you can specify the endpoint URL and the request method. You can also map the values to populate the attributes in the request body. You can also add any additional request parameters or headers using '+' sign. Refer to the example workflow images available below.
