Call REST API in Service Bus (JSON Request/Response) by Denis Velagic


In this example we will create similar integration as in previous post and only difference will be that both Request and Response will be in JSON format. So let’s call it a typed REST service. We will call a REST API with JSON data format (parameters as input) and as a Response we will get JSON also. So, if you have a requirement to work with some RESTful API that works only with JSON data format you can do it easy in the Service Bus version without converting to XSD. All data mapping can be done in JavaScript activity. JavaScript is not limited to REST services. We can use JavaScript in any service. Here we will call Weather data Rest API and retrieve some JSON information, and this is an example URL of this API. For more information on this API and how to use it you can visit Open Wheater site


We will create:

  • REST Proxy Service – where we will provide the parameter for the API call
  • Pipeline
  • REST Business service – actual call to the REST API. Read the complete article here.
