Request Assignments

Provides a quick and easy way to build request data, when the request data is not provided to the node's input terminal.

If the Input Data Request Mode is set to Template, this property is enabled. To use this option, the endpoint definition in the configuration file must include a template for the request which points to a JSON file defining the actual request data, or a template for the request which can be modified via request assignments. Assignments are specified through a table with two columns: Path and Value. The path is a JSON path to identify a field in the template. This uses dot-notation to specify the path. For example, if the template contains:

{ "address": { "city": "Springfield" } }

The city field would be identified by path The value specifies the value to substitute at the specified path, which is typically set to the value of a flow variable which is specified as %flow_var%.
