Citrix on Creating REST APIs for your Internet of Things Automations

Have you ever wanted to create your own REST API that triggers numerous Internet of Things (IoT) automations or system updates and then returns a response with data?

Citrix Octoblu has always supported fire-and-forget webhooks via our Trigger nodes to run IoT automations. Now you can use Triggers in your Octoblu flows as entry points to your very own REST API requests. Simply copy and paste the Trigger’s HTTP POST URI into your favorite text editor and change the trigger subdomain to “rest”. This service will now keep the HTTP request open until your HTTP POST sends the response back to the user’s pending request.
