Custom API Action

Make a custom, authenticated HTTP request to the DataGrail API.


Field Definition Type Required
Request Type This is one of the supported HTTP request methods, or HTTP verbs, in a custom API call (see HTTP request methods).
  • GET: Retrieves data from a web server based on parameters. This method requests a representation of the specified resource. If a request is successful, a 200 (OK) response message is returned with the requested content.
  • POST: Sends data to a web server based on parameters (for example, uploading a file). Multiple POST requests may result in a different outcome than a single POST. Caution should be exercised to avoid sending multiple POST requests unintentionally. If a request is successful, a 200 (OK) response message is returned.
Dropdown TRUE


Field Definition Type Required
Relative URL

URL address on the web server to which you're attempting to interact. Specify the relative URL as /{version}/{insert_remaining_URL}.

You can specify query parameters in the relative URL using "?", or specify the query parameters as an object key pair in the Query input.

For example, for the DataGrail endpoint: the relative URL is: /privacy_requests.

Query Specify any additional query parameters that should be included in object format (key value pairs). Object FALSE
Headers Specify any headers required in addition to authorization or content-type, as this connector already handles these. Object FALSE
Body Specify a request body in JSON format. Only available for POST requests. Object FALSE


Field Definition Type


Status Code

Result of the operation. The connector returns an HTTP status code that indicates whether the action taken by the card succeeded or failed. For example:

  • A 201 Created status code indicates success where a new resource was created.
  • A 403 Forbidden error indicates that the HTTP request wasn't processed because the necessary permissions were missing.

For a full list of possible status codes, see HTTP status codes.



Detailed context for the status code, unrelated to the output body. Response headers depend on your selected HTTP request option. Not all headers are response headers. This is similar to {"Content-type":"application/json"}.



Data returned from your selected HTTP request.

For example, the data from a GET request.
