The Send HTTP request step is typically used to initialize data for later use in a process.

Using this step, you can request information from HTTP endpoints, e.g. a database of information or a Power Automate flow.

To use this step, you must have a HTTP endpoint configured in the HTTP Endpoint Library in the WorkPoint 365 Administration. You can read more about how to configure HTTP endpoints in WorkPoint in this article.

An example of use could be to call a Power Automate flow using this step, which gets the current user's Manager, and then use the information from the endpoint to fill various fields in an Entity form.

This example is demonstrated in the following image:

The following image shows some of the settings for the Send HTTP request step:
