HTTP Transformation in Informatica allows us to connect to an HTTP server.After connecting to the server we can either retrieve data from HTTP server or else we can write to the server.
- Reading from the HTTP server:When the Integration Service reads data from an HTTP server, it takes the data from the HTTP server and passes the data to the target tables.Once data is taken from the HTTP server you can perform the required calculation and pass it to the target tables.
- Writing into the HTTP server:When the Integration Service writes to an HTTP server, it writes data to the HTTP server and passes HTTP server responses to the target tables.
How to Connect to the HTTP Server
While configuring an HTTP transformation, you can configure the URL for the connection or create an HTTP connection object in the Workflow Manager.
