Currently (CAIM 12.6 SP7), calling a REST WS trough a PX has the following limitation:


  1. You have to provide authentication mechanism (Basic, OAUTH)
  2. The return value have to be in native JSON so if your return value has an XML structure, the request will fail
  3. You have to add the "Set-Cookie:SMCHALLENGE=YES" HTTP Header to have SiteMinder support
  4. Error handling is setup right as if, for example, you have the WS return an XML type output, the PX fails with the following error:

    Expected BEGIN_OBJECT but was STRING at line 1 column 1

This very good and important feature need to be enhanced to have the following options:


  1. Allow Anonymous Auth  or the option to select non auth communication
  2. Allow support with SM Authentication schemes like Basic etc.
  3. Better support for non regular output return from the WS call
