REST Get

In this article

Overview

You can use the REST Get Snap to execute an HTTP Get method on a REST API service endpoint. 

To execute a SnapLogic Pipeline that is exposed as a REST service, use the Task Execute Snap instead.

Prerequisites

None.

Supported Features

Works in Ultra Task Pipelines.

Limitations and Known Issues

The REST GET Snap Link HTTP response header maybe be malformed compared to other third-party applications like POSTMAN.

Snap Settings

Field NameField TypeDescription
Label*String

Specify a name for the Snap. You can modify this to be more specific, especially if you have more than one of the same Snap in your Pipeline.

Default ValueREST Get
ExampleGet User Details

Service URL*

String/Expression

Specify the service endpoint URL of REST API. You can provide the URL in one of the following ways:

The Snap finds the value at the JSON path "$.widget.id" in the input data and replaces "%s" in the Service URL with the value. You can connect a File Reader and JSON Parser Snaps upstream of REST Put Snap and prepare the following JSON file to File Reader Snap:

[
 { "widget": { "id": "111", "name": "foo" } }
 { "widget": { "id": "555", "name": "bar" } }
]
"https://www.example.com/data/v27.0/sobjects/Account"

The Service URL for a REST snap has to be valid. If the Service URL contains any special characters, such as !, =, %21, $, and ^, the Snap throws an exception error. You can escape the special characters (using expression language) using one of the following methods:

We recommend you to use the former (encodeURIComponent) method to escape the special characters.

Default Value: N/A
Examplehttps://elastic.snaplogic.com/api/1/rest/
public/runtime/snaplogic?
start=1430377200000
&end=1430420399000

Process arrayCheckbox

Select to produce a stream of documents with one record in each document.

Default Value: Deselected
Example: N/A

Trust all certificatesCheckbox

Select this checkbox to trust all certificates, such as self-signed certificates.  

Default Value: Deselected
Example: N/A

Follow redirectsCheckbox

Select this checkbox to enable the Snap to follow redirects.

  • If you select this checkbox, the Snap receives a redirect response, such as a 301 or 302 response code, it sends another request to the URL specified in the response Location header.
  • If you deselect this checkbox, the Snap does not make another request, and the 301/302 response appears in the output view.

Default Value: Selected
Example: N/A

Query parameters

Use this field set to add query parameters to your request. This field set comprises the following fields:

  • Query parameter
  • Query parameter value

Default Value: N/A
Example$User

Query parameter

String

The name of the query parameter.

Default ValueN/A
Exampleid

Query parameter value

String/Expression

The value that you want to assign to the parameter.

This property is expression-enabled. For more information on the expression language, see Understanding Expressions in SnapLogic and Using Expressions. For information on Pipeline Parameters, see Pipeline Properties.

Default Value: N/A
Example$widget.id

HTTP Header

Use this field set to create the HTTP header key-value pairs required for defining the headers for different types of input (JSON, PDF, DOCX, and so on). If you want to specify only content-type headers, you can configure the Multipart Content-Type property instead. This field set comprises the following fields:

  • Key
  • Value


Key

String/Expression

The name of the HTTP header.

This property is expression-enabled. For more information on the expression language, see Understanding Expressions in SnapLogic and Using Expressions. For information on Pipeline Parameters, see Pipeline Properties.

Default Value: N/A
Examplecontent-type

Value

String/Expression

The value that you want to assign to the HTTP header.

This property is expression-enabled. For more information on the expression language, see Understanding Expressions in SnapLogic and Using Expressions. For information on Pipeline Parameters, see Pipeline Properties.

Default Value: N/A
Exampleapplication/json

Response entity typeString

This field allows you to select the response entity type in the output document. The available options include:

  • DEFAULT - If selected, the response entity is processed automatically.
    The two scenarios:
    • If the Process Array property is selected, the Snap attempts to parse JSON or XML and produce a stream of documents at the output view. If the data cannot be parsed, then the entity field is set to a string value in the output document.
    • If the Process Array property is not selected, the Snaps attempts to convert the entity to a string or a byte array depending on the response headers.   
  • TEXT - If selected, the Snap produces an entity of string type.
  • BINARY - If selected, the Snap produces an entity of byte array type.
 If TEXT or BINARY is selected, the Snap will not attempt to parse the entity content. If DEFAULT is selected, the Snap produces the expected result in most cases, but when failed to do so, users may set the Response entity type to TEXT or BINARY.

Default Value: DEFAULT
Example: N/A

Read timeoutInteger

Specify the number of seconds for which the Snap waits before aborting the request due to a failure to read from the target service.

  • In some cases, the request does not return, such as during network issues. For those a timeout can be configured to allow failing fast. 
  • Every Snap instance can have its own timeout settings.
  • The Snap will execute five retries within a couple of seconds back-off time before it fails.

Default Value: 900
Example: 60

Connection timeoutInteger

Specify the number of seconds for which the Snap waits before aborting the request due to a failure to establish a connection to the target endpoint or service.

Default Value: 30
Example60

Maximum request attempts Integer

Specify the maximum number of attempts that the Snap must make to receive a response. If the attempts do not result in a response, the Snap terminates the request.

Default Value5
Example3

Retry request intervalInteger

Specify the number of seconds for which the Snap waits between two successive requests. A retry happens only when the previous attempt resulted in an exception.

Default Value3
Example10

Retry PolicyString

Select how you want to handle connection and error responses from the following options:

  • Connection errors: Occurs when a client fails to establish a secure connection to the server.
  • Connection and auth errors (401/403): Occurs when either the user authorization fails or access to the page/resource is forbidden.
  • Connection and client errors (4xx): Occurs when the request for the resource contains bad syntax, or when the resource is not found (404).
  • Connection and server errors (5xx): Occurs when the server is unable to complete a request.
  • All errors: Applies to all of the above-listed errors.

Default ValueConnection errors
ExampleAll errors

Normalize URLCheckbox

Select this checkbox to normalize the Service URL. This enables the Snap to convert double slashes (//) in the URL path to single slash (/).
For example,
https://example.com/path//to//file is converted to https://example.com/path/to/file.

Deselecting this check box reverts the Snap to 4.19 Snaplex behavior, wherein the URL paths were not normalized by default.

In the 4.20 Release, due to the HTTP client upgrade the URL paths were normalized by default. Hence, there was a change in behavior in handling the URL paths in 4.20 release when compared to 4.19. This change in behavior should not impact the existing Pipelines, because most of the websites map URL paths with double or single slashes to the same endpoint. For example, https://snaplogic.com/company/diversity and https://snaplogic.com//company//diversity direct to the same endpoint. Therefore, we recommend you to select the Normalize URL checkbox.

However, an exception to this is when you use non-standard URLs that differentiate the URL paths containing double slashes from those with single slashes and map them to different endpoints, in which case you must deselect Normalize URL check box. 
For example, http://host/pages/foo.html and http://host/pages//foo.html point to different URIs, and servers assign different meanings to them.

Default ValueSelected
ExampleDeselected

Has nextString/Expression

Enter the expression that must be evaluated on the output document to true or false, to indicate whether there are more records available. The Snap continues to read the next page until this expression evaluates to false in the new set of output documents.

Has next is a property in the API response that indicates whether there are more records to be fetched. This property is used for the REST Get pagination feature, which retrieves 20 records at a time (referred to as a page), by default. 

To see this property in action, see Retrieving Contact Information from HubSpot or Retrieving Contact Information from HubSpot Using Upstream Values, below.

This field is null-safe; if the evaluated value is null, or if there is no value provided in Has next field, the Snap stops the pagination.

Default Value: N/A
Example$entity['has-more']

Next URLString/Expression

Enter the expression that is evaluated on the output document to a URL that the Snap must use to get the next page. This property is used for the REST Get pagination feature.

The Next URL has two components, which are structured as follows:
"<endpoint_URL>&<offset_indicator>=" + $entity['last_ID_retrieved']

  • The first component contains the URL of the endpoint and an instruction to look for the offset indicator. ("<endpoint_URL>&<offset_indicator>=").
  • The second component is a pointer to the parameter in the API response that contains the ID of the last entity retrieved. This tells the endpoint that the next page must contain entities that are returned after the entity number listed in the Next URL.

You can create the Next URL in either of the following ways:

  • You can enter the entire URL in the expression and include the parameter required to fetch the next set of documents.
    Example: "https://api.hubapi.com/contacts/v1/lists/all/contacts/all?hapikey=demo&vidOffset=" + $entity['vid-offset']

  • If you have the URL part of the Next URL as an input from an upstream Snap, you can structure the Next URL expression using the original parameter in the API response received. 
    For example, if you have the following input coming from upstream:

    You can configure the Next URL field as follows:

    Here, vid-offset is the parameter in the API response that contains the ID of the last output received from the endpoint.
    If the API response does not contain a field with information about the last entity retrieved, you can use the Snap's output document count to fetch the next page.
    For example, <https://domain.com/object/page/' + (snap.out.totalCount + 1).toString()>

For additional information, see Retrieving Contact Information from HubSpot or Retrieving Contact Information from HubSpot Using Upstream Values.

Default ValueN/A
Example$entity['has-more']

Pagination interval(s)Integer

The number of seconds for the Snap to wait before attempting to get the next page.

Default Value0
Example10

Show all headersCheckbox

The REST endpoint may return a response with multiple headers with the same header name.

  • If this property is deselected, only one response header will be shown in the output document.
  • If selected, the response header displays all the response header values received as a list of objects.

If any of these objects has a key-value format, it is parsed into the map data.

Default Value: Deselected
Example: N/A

Snap ExecutionString

Select one of the three modes in which the Snap executes. Available options are:

  • Validate & Execute: Performs limited execution of the Snap, and generates a data preview during Pipeline validation. Subsequently, performs full execution of the Snap (unlimited records) during Pipeline runtime.
  • Execute only: Performs full execution of the Snap during Pipeline execution without generating preview data.
  • Disabled: Disables the Snap and all Snaps that are downstream from it.

Default ValueValidate & Execute
ExampleValidate & Execute

Using REST Get to Process gzip Compressed Data

The response can provide gzipped data. In that case, the Snap can be configured to process it using the header parameter:

HTTP Header

 Key

 Value

 Accept-Encoding

 gzip    

 Accept

 */*

The stream will then be uncompressed while parsing the data and making it available on the output view.

Troubleshooting

ErrorReasonResolution
Failed to execute HTTP requestThe Service URL must have a protocol, such as http://, https://.Check the Snap properties. Specifically, check your entry in the Service URL field.
<Service_URL>: Name or service not known. This basically means that the service URL you entered is not accessible.
Failure: Validation errors: property_map.settings.serviceUrl.value: Could not compile expression: <Service_URL>

The snap settings are not correct. Encountered extraneous input ':' at line 1:5; expecting={<EOF>, '||', '&&', '^', '==', '!=', '>', '<', '>=', '<=', '+', '-', '*', '/', '%', '?', 'instanceof', 'in', 'matches', '[', '(', '.', PropertyRef}.

This means that you have turned expressions on () while entering string value into the Service URL field.

Fix the snap configuration and try executing again. Please check expression syntax. Ensure that your service URL is a proper expression; or turn off the expression control (). 

For more information on the expression language, see Understanding Expressions in SnapLogic and Using Expressions.

URL Parse Exception - 403The Service URL path might be containing any of the following special characters:
!, =, %, #, $, ^&()_¢äâêîôûñç¡¿ÉÙËǨ°¸ðø©¢¾A+²½µ®§÷¶þ
 
To escape the special characters, use the global function encodeURIComponent on any variables that might contain special characters so that they are encoded properly.

Examples

Retrieving Contact Information from HubSpot

In this example, we use the Has next field to retrieve the list of users created most recently in HubSpot. You then separate user information from the other details in the API response.

The REST Get Snap

We use the REST Get Snap to retrieve user information from HubSpot, and configure the Snap as follows:

REST Get configuration details

The following configuration details are key to understanding this example:

FieldValueDescription
Service URLhttps://api.hubapi.com/contacts/v1/lists/all/contacts/all?hapikey=demoThis is a demo API offered by HubSpot, which returns details of all contacts created in the demo account, in descending order. This API only scrolls back 30 days in time.
Has next$entity['has-more']The REST Get Snap lists 20 documents by default. If there are more contacts created during the 30 days preceding the call, this API returns true for the key has-more.
Next URL"https://api.hubapi.com/contacts/v1/lists/all/contacts/all?hapikey=demo&vidOffset=" + $entity['vid-offset']This is the URL that the Snap calls to retrieve the next set of 20 documents. In this URL, vid-offset is the ID of the last user whose details were retrieved in the preceding call. For example, if the ID of the last user in the API response is 12345, then that will be the value of the vid-offset parameter.

When executed, this Snap lists out API response entities in sets of 20, until the last contact information is listed out, and the has-more field changes to false:

The JSON Splitter Snap

The output from the REST Get Snap contains a lot of details; but we only want user details, which are available in the entity.contacts array in the API response. We use the JSON Splitter Snap to isolate the information we need:

The output of the JSON Splitter Snap contains only the information we need:

The JSON Generator Snap

We enter the endpoint URL into the JSON Generator Snap:

When executed, the JSON Generator Snap gets the following output:

We use the REST Get Snap to retrieve user information from HubSpot, and configure the Snap as follows:

REST Get configuration details

The following configuration details are critical to understand this example:

FieldValueDescription
Service URLhttps://api.hubapi.com/contacts/v1/lists/all/contacts/all?hapikey=demoThis is a demo API offered by HubSpot, which lists out a few details of their most recently created users in descending order. This API only scrolls back 30 days in time.
Has next$entity['has-more']The Get all contacts API offers 20 documents by default. If there are more contacts created during the 30 days preceding the call, this API returns true for the key has-more.
Next URL$original.url+ "=" + $entity['vid-offset']This is the expression that uses the value received from the upstream JSON Generator Snap to create the URL that the Snap calls to retrieve the next set of documents. In this URL, vid-offset is the ID of the last user whose details were retrieved in the preceding call. For example, if the ID of the last user in the API response is 12345, then that will be the value of the vid-offset parameter.

When executed, this Snap lists out API response entities in sets of 20, until the last contact information is listed out, and the has-more field changes to false.

Connecting to the SnapLogic API

You can use the REST Get Snap to get information from the Pipeline Monitoring API. For example, to return the status of executed pipelines for the specified time within the org Snaplogic, the GET statement of GET https://elastic.snaplogic.com/api/1/rest/public/runtime/snaplogic?start=1430377200000&end=1430420399000 can be passed through the REST Get Snap as shown below:

Connecting to Rally with REST

See the Use Case example Pipeline: Connecting to Rally with REST.

Example #3: REST Snap Pack

The REST Get Snap in the above example pipeline gets the data for a JIRA issue created and updated in the preceding Snaps in the pipeline.

 
The following JSON data is the input document to the Snap:

REST Get Pagination: Eloqua

For Eloqua, set:

  • Has Next: ($total - ($page*$pageSize)) > 0
  • Next URL: “/assets/campaigns?count=2&page=” + (resultdoc.page +1)

REST Get Pagination: Marketo

For Marketo, set:

  • Has Next: resultdoc.moreResult
  • Next URL: “/rest/v1/activities.json?nextPageToken=” + resultdoc.nextPageToken + ”&activityTypeIds=1&activityTypeIds=12”

REST Get handles multiple response cookies

In this Pipeline, we request for a service URL 'https://mockbin.com/bin/f580f547-310a-44da-bec2-e43890eebe26using the Rest Get Snap, where the REST endpoint returns the HTTP response with multiple cookies under the same header. We connected the JSON Splitter Snap to view the cookies under the header 'set-cookie'.


We enter the JSON Path as $headers['set-cookie'] in the JSON Snap

The successful execution of the Pipeline displays the below output view in which we can see the two cookies, {JSESSIONID:first, Path:/} and {ORA_OD_OSI:second, Path:/} respectively under the header'set-cookie'.
