Using WorkPoint processes with HTTP endpoints

Article published on the 4th of February, 2022.


1. Introduction

This article is a continuation of a previous article where a configuration for a WorkPoint process was made so that the Title and VAT Number fields in an Entity form could be filled in using the response from a GET request to an Http endpoint.

In this article we will go through the usage of the previous configuration.

We will open the "Create Company" process, and in the Title field of the form we will perform a search for "workpoint". We expect the system to return a result from the configured Http endpoint with the title "WorkPoint A/S". When we select this search result, the Title, as well as  the VAT Number" fields should be filled in with data from the Http endpoint result.

2. User Guide

In our example the previously mentioned "Create Company" process is started by clicking a My Tools button of the same name:

hmnewplatform - Home - Google Chrome
  1. In the My Tools panel, we click the "Create Company" button.

This opens the first step of the process, which is a form where I can input meta data for the new company:

  1. The Title field has a data binding configuration which allows us to search for companies using their names. The response from the Http endpoint can then be used to fill the Title field in the form. To perform a search for the company we cant to create, we simply click the field and start typing our search query, in this case "workpoint" In this example, our Http endpoint returns a result: "WORKPOINT A/S".

If we click the WORKPOINT A/S result, the "Title" as well as the "VAT Number" fields in the form are filled in using data from the Http endpoint response:

From here, we can move on to the next step and continue running our process.
