Our fourth Informatica Cloud #TechTuesdays session, "Benefits of Using REST APIs in Integration", focused on the specific resources that Informatica Cloud's REST API provides, and the various scenarios in which they can be used. We first went over the most common kinds of requests (such as GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) that REST calls make, and then gave an overview of the resources that the Informatica Cloud REST API provides. These resources can be broadly grouped into the following categories:

  • Activities
  • Secure Agent Details
  • Jobs
  • Logins
  • Integration Templates
  • Workflow Details
  • Schedules

 

When using Informatica Cloud's REST API, it is very important to know what the header configuration looks like, and also to use only Version 2 of the REST API. The demo showcased the following scenarios:

 

  • Embedding integration into a SaaS Application
  • Job scheduling & monitoring
  • Administering new users

 

Here are the slides and entire recording featuring Amol Dongre from our Cloud Engineering team. Tomorrow's session will focus on using SOAP web services within Informatica Cloud.
