cURL Access

The examples within this document use cURL to demonstrate how to access the Oracle Integration REST API.

To use cURL to access the Oracle Integration REST API:

  • Install cURL, as described in Quick Start.

  • In a command window, set the cURL environment variable, CURL_CA_BUNDLE, to the location of your local CA certificate bundle. For information about CA certificate verification using cURL, see:

  • Invoke cURL and specify one or more of the command-line options defined in the following table, as required, to direct its execution.

    cURL Option Description
    -d, --data '{"name":"value"}' -d, --data @file.json Identifies the request document, in JSON format, on the local machine.
    -F, --form @file.json Identifies form data, in JSON format, on the local machine.
    -H, --header Defines the content type of the request data.
    -i Displays response header information.
    -o path Identifies the response output on the local machine. Use this option for export operations and to save a response to a file.
    -H 'Authorization: Bearer access_token??? Specifies the access token for the Oracle Integration account. See Security, Authentication and Authorization.
    -X, --request Indicates the type of request (for example, GET, POST, and so on).
The following example cURL command posts a comment to the task with the ID 123456:
curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJiO.eyJzdZ.tQ8_-9Jor5'
 -H "Content-Type:application/json"
 -H "Accept: application/json"
 -d '{"commentStr":"add test Comment"}'<version>/tasks/123456/comments
