Learn how to use web services to drive an automation flow, as part of our series about data-driven automation with LEAPWORK.
Web services are here to stay. Modern applications are increasingly built using a service-oriented architecture, and legacy applications are often re-built to use services or are having a service interface added. From an automation point of view, there are several interesting possibilities for using web services.
In LEAPWORK, the HTTP Request building block is for calling a web service, posting data to a form without using the UI, checking if a website is responding, and more.
This tutorial covers two examples of using web services in automation: Checking if a website is responding and inspecting results from a web services call. You will also learn how to use a combination of string manipulation and automation sub-flows to create a passer for JSON-based responses.
