Unfortunately, Informatica REST consumer transformation does not have a retry logic built -in as of now.We have already raised a feature request to make this feature available in the consumer transformation.But this will take a while to be implemented in the product in upcoming releases.
As of now, You may have to keep track of the requests sent and the responses received. You will have to map the response to the request and for every request that did not get the response you will have to send the request out again.This can be achieved through scripts or using java codes inside java transformation.
Thanks for confirming this is not an available feature in the REST consumer.
We do keep track of all requests and responses.
Sometimes the reason a REST call fails is due to network error. This seems to create an unhandled exception which fails the whole job.
Is there some way to put in a re-try loop that will catch this exception and re-try?
We do not have the retry capability in REST consumer for now. We have raised a feature request OCON-8923 for this as well.
