REST Destination process resulting document

Anthony Sale asked 4 years ago
I’m using the REST Destination to post details of a SOP order to a third party application. The rest request returns a document detailing the outcome of the request, we need to use this response to identify if the request was successful. How do I capture and process the resulting document, I was expecting something like the Web Service Response data source.
Any help greatly appreciated.

The REST Connector currently does not have a way to capture the response body when being used as a destination. We have this entered as a feature request. We are currently rebuilding the connector to handle scenarios like this that cannot be managed by the current connector. The new connector will be released within the next year.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will there be a Beta program so we can get involved in the testing of this feature. Will it work in a similar way to the web service response data source?

There will not be a Beta program, but rather it will be released on before becoming available on SmartConnect on-premise.
We do not know yet how it will work. At this point development is focused on rebuilding the data source portion.

The updated REST Connector is now live in and will be available to on-premise installs later this year.
