Sends either arbitrary JSON data or a message from the outbox to specified Producer. Usually this function is used to respond to a previously received request-message. You can use the Function Wizard for this function.
|Consumer||Name of the Consumer to use for sending respond.|
|RequestId||The requestId as provided by a previously received request-message|
|Body||Data to send as response.|
|StatusCode||Optional. Defaults to 200. HTTP status code of the response.|
|Headers||Optional. Headers of the response.|
TRUE on success or error code otherwise.
We assume that a request-message was received and that it provides a requestId which we store to cell B1 by using
the READ function as follows:
READ(INBOXMETADATA(,,"requestId"), B1, "String")
|=REST.RESPOND(“Rest”, B1, DICTIONARY(A3:C5))||TRUE||Sends the JSON data provided by the dictionary function to the Consumer named Rest using the requestId in B1|
=REST.RESPOND(“Rest”, B1, “Not Found”, 404,A2:B2)
|TRUE||Responds to the request corresponding to requestId with the body “Not Found”, status code “404” and the header “Content-Type: text/plain”.|
