In this article you will find instructions on how to define Rest Web Services Layout data for use by Infogix Assure, that is fetched by invoking an external Rest Web Service. This layout can search and extract individual fields that exist within the JSON data payload extracted from the Rest Web Service response. Rest Web Service should be accessible from the Infogix Assure server environment.
To deploy a Rest Web Services Layout, an Admin will need to re-deploy Assure with the Rest Web Services Plugin JAR. Execute the following Infogix Assure deployment steps to add the Rest Web Services layout.
- Unzip the folder to extract the jar file.
- Verify the location of the PLUGINS_DIR property within IA.properties. If this location is not defined, then a location will need to be provided. The most common location is a "plugins" folder within the main Infogix installation directory.
- Place restwebsvcsplugin.jar in the location specified by PLUGINS_DIR.
- Redeploy the Assure application. For details on how to redeploy, please review our How to Redeploy article.
