Used to create, update, delete and browse through plain HTTP channels.
A plain HTTP channel is a means of accepting synchronous HTTP service invocations. Contrary to what SOAP channels assume, plain HTTP ones don’t except the data to be in any particular format, it can be anything that can be transferred over HTTP, including JSON, CSV, XML or virtually anything.
|URL path||A path to mount this channel on. Must be unique in a cluster.|
|Method||(Optional) An HTTP method that must be used by clients to invoke this particular channel. It can be any string and Zato won’t check if it’s a valid HTTP 1.1 method. Leave empty to allow any method be used.|
|Service||Name of an already existing service to invoke for each HTTP request received|
|Data format||(Optional) The expected data format Zato should parse incoming messages as. This will also populate a service’s data_format attribute.|
Pick ‘No security’ explicitly to indicate that no such definition should be used. This can be used to expose certain services without any usernames or to indicate that a service will implement a custom security scheme itself.
Deletes the channel from ODB and servers. The channel won’t exist anymore and invoking a URL it was mounted on will return HTTP 404 error.
If a channel is made inactive, an attempt to invoke it will result in an HTTP 404 error.
