Automation Nodes

Request Node

Request node - a node that allows you to automatically create requests and send them.

Request Node

Inputs

There can be a lot of input sockets by adding new sockets

Default Input Sockets

There are only one default input socket. It is responsible for starting the node work. Only when any value is received on this socket, a request is generated and sent. No matter what data comes in, the main thing is that the original socket was the same type as the current one.

Name Data Type Description
RUN value allows to send the request

Additional Input Sockets

The additional input sockets can be added using Inputs Settings. All added sockets can be divided by Parameter Type and Input Type. These types can be combined in any way.

Outputs

This node has only one output socket.

Default Output Sockets

The only output socket of the node returns the request data as an object. This allows you to see the sent data and requests, as well as transmit them to the following nodes.

Name Data Type Description
Object object returns the sent request

Additional Output Sockets

There are no settings to add additional output sockets.

Options

The current node has two groups of settings. The first one, called Request Settings, configures the request itself. And the second group, called Inputs Settings, allows you to add headers, parameters, and query parameters to the request. In parallel with new headers and parameters, sockets that accept data for them are created.
