HTTP GET method - and ability to access/act on response data

I did a bad thing…and built an automation, just assuming that since POST was available, GET would be possible.

  • We can PUT, PATCH, POST, and DELETE. But not GET?
  • Additionally, even from a successful POST, we’re unable to access the response data.

I’m sitting here laughing at myself for dumb assumptions.

Would love to avoid bringing in yet another tool (Workato, Tray.io, Integromat?) to accomplish accessing response data from simple REST calls. For this particular project, it seems we will have to use another tool altogether, and exclude AppSheet from the solution.

There are likely more reasons why having to bring in another tool is less than ideal:

  • Another point of error/failure
  • frustration
  • speed
  • additional expense/overhead
  • maintenance headaches
