Call web service with REST api and oauth2 tokens

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I'm looking at doing some integration between sharepoint 2010 onpremise with Nintex workflow 2013 enterprise at a school and the canvas cloud based LMS.

Canvas have quite a well documented API (Canvas LMS REST API Documentation )

That can be called via REST and authenticated with oauth2 tokens.

I don't think that the current  call web service action can support this.

Possibly the web request action

Can anyone advise if either of these actions will support this type of web request methods?

The closest I have found in Nintex Doco is

Nintex Workflow for Office 365 - Calling a web service

However that is for Nintex workflow for office 365.

The build dictionary and call HTTP web service actions do seem to fit the bill perfectly.

For the Nintex product guys: are these actions coming to Nintex on premise?

Cheers

Gavin

It's possibly to call a REST webservice (GET / POST) but I dont know about the "oauth2"

We use the "Web request" as the "Call web service" only support SOAP.

We kind of have a similar question.

Our REST web service (Web API) is returning a FileStream (Word docx) as a response.

Am not sure how to accept this response out of a "Web Request" action and maybe save/upload the document in a library.

Is this even possible?

Thanks,

I think this is an amazing walkthrough of using REST api's with nintex workflow  

It also walks through using token requests for OAUTH connections, but not externally specifically.

Good doc, but I get unauthorized error.  The logged in user has permissions to the list, do I need to pass the token?  It is my understanding that if the token is not passed it will use the logged in user's credentials.
