Configure Flow: HTTP trigger

Configure Flow: HTTP trigger

With this trigger, a flow can be triggered by executing an HTTP call to the stored URL.
The URL is generated automatically and can only trigger this flow.
You can use the common HTTP methods 'GET', 'POST', 'PUT', 'PATCH' and 'DELETE'. The following entities are available for the following functions in the flow:

HTTP method used
Header (list)
Query Parameters (List)
Body (Base64 Encoded)
Protocol used
IP and port of the sender

Since you cannot use lists as input in most cases, it is possible to provide explicit fields from headers and query parameters with variables.

To do this, click on the button 'ADD ENTITY' and choose from the two input fields (query parameter and header). In the following field, you can enter the name behind which your value is located.

For example, if you use the combination from above in the illustration Query Parameter arrowforward_ temperature, the temperature of a sensor is located as a query parameter behind the key temperature. The called URL could therefore look like this:[...]/?temperature=20.1. In this example, you could use the temperature (here: 20.1) of the sensor in subsequent functions and trigger an alarm depending on it.
