Please navigate to Recipe area, click on "+", select "Maker" from the list of the actuators and drag it to the Recipe Editor area.
In the settings of the "Maker" actuator please enter the following parameters:

  • URL of the desired web site
  • Method that you would like to use, i.e. POST, PUT, GET, DELETE, PATCH or OPTIONS. Detailed description of the methods you can find in the following article: "Using HTTP Methods for RESTful Services" at http://www.restapitutorial.com http://www.restapitutorial.com/lessons/httpmethods.html /lessons/httpmethods.html"
  • Select a Content Type

    • application/json - this content type is used for the JSON text
