REST Snap Pack

In this article


Use Snaps in this Snap Pack to execute HTTP methods on a REST API service endpoint.

We recommend that you use the HTTP Client Snap instead of Snaps from the REST Snap Pack to connect to REST-based APIs and applications.

When making a REST call over HTTPS, REST Snaps use bundled JREs (a collection of trusted certificate authorities) in the following directory:


Supported Versions

This Snap Pack is tested against http components version 4.4.12.

Best Practices

Build your integrations faster by leveraging patterns in the SnapLogic community for the REST Snaps to connect applications such as Slack.


When making a REST call over HTTPS, what CA bundle is the REST Snap using?

Snaplogic uses a collection of bundled trusted certificate authorities as a JRE collection in: /opt/snaplogic/pkgs/jre1.8.0_45/lib/security/cacerts.
