The REST API SIA connector allows for performing HTTP(s) REST API calls with a remote server.
HTTP & HTTPS
The Connector supports both HTTP and HTTPS (secure) connections.

The instance needs the following parameters to establish a connection to the remote server:
|Address (instance default)
|The IP address or URL of the server to connect to.
|The amount of time to wait for a response from the remote server, before considering it a failed connection.
| Default Headers
The parameters to be passed to the headers of the request.
|Whether the request is a JSON type that will be added to the default headers.
The item parameters that are needed to read the connect to a remote server:
|The endpoint for a specific request.
Additional header settings to be added to the HTTP request. To add multiple headers use the format as below:
|The request type to use (POST, PUT, GET, DELETE).
|Optional request data to add to the specific request as the default payload (eg. login information).
