Support for Headers & Authorization in Send a GET or POST Request to a Web Server Alert Action

Support for Headers & Authorization in Send a GET or POST Request to a Web Server Alert Action

Hi,

I have seen a couple of posts where other people need to send header as part of a POST request to a web service and while it is not overly difficult to wrap this into a script, with the level of integration being performed by customers, I would like to have the ability to add custom Headers to the POST settings within this alert action.

Placing API calls via post often requires authentication or the passing of values as header arguments and critically authorisation.

Request:

  • Support for the standard API Authorisation methods; Basic Auth, No Auth, Digest Auth, Bearer Token etc.
  • Support for POST Headers

The following is a quick and dirty mockup:

All for removing the scripting barrier for common use cases. BUMP!

Would it be too much to ask for Orion to just have all the options and features I have in Postman? That would streamline my work flow considerably

I stopped short of stating this level of support, but that would be very welcome. Anyone working against an API is going to be using and familiar with Postman.

Level 7

Thank you very much, we have a doubt which version of Orion is this screen that you place? since I have version 12.2 of NPM and I don't have the option of adding additional headers with this version, what can I do to insert headers?
