HTTP Request

Call any API using the HTTP protocol

This action is a wrapper over the HTTP protocol and you can use it to connect to any API.

For more technical users you can see it as a cURL tool equivalent.

For less technical users you can see it as a web browser without an user interface.

This action is very versatile as it will allow you to talk to any system that exposes an HTTP service, exactly like the web browser you use every day.
