GET Service


The tool GET provides support for you to execute a HTTP GET request on a Web application to get resources from a Web application.

Tool Attribute:

Attribute Type Description
Media Type [M] Selection Specifies the media type that is acceptable for the response. Valid values are
  • application/json (default)
  • application/octet-stream

Note: If the accepted media type is specified via a Request Header with the key "Accept" , the header value has preference. See also:


Response Body Resource Processing [O] Selection Specifies what type of resource operation should be executed based on the returned response body.

The resource operation will use all properties mapped in the referenced response body output parameter file descriptor. This is optional, since not all resource operation types require property values to be successfully executed (e.g. DELETE will remove the selected element even if no element ID properties are specified).

Possible values:

  • COPY
  • MOVE

For more information on resource processing, see Tool Descriptor

Note: The Resource Processing attribute of the tool descriptor must be set to “TOOL_DEFINED” in order for the resource operation to be processed.


A GET request for obtaining information about a project entry with Response Body Resource Processing set to UPDATE will refresh the property values of a selected project entry.
