Ivanti Automation powered by RES


REST (Execute)

Use the REST task to send API requests just like any other application would do (for example, Postman, available from https://www.getpostman.com). Construct the request with a third-party tool, like Postman, and get the request code pasted in the Request field.


  • If the target host uses a self-signed certificate and the targeted host is using HTTPS, select the option to Ignore SSL certificate validation. Otherwise, the request will fail.
  • The status code can be placed into an Ivanti Automation parameter by using the option to Set paramater with status code.
  • The request response can be placed into an Ivanti Automation parameter by using the option to Set parameter with request response.
  • Ivanti Automation parameters, variables and functions are supported within the request field.
  • Resources are also supported in the request field, by using the resource GUID. Eg:

    <Content-Disposition: form-data; name=""; filename="{0E1DE20C-F77B-45A6-BAE8-0F63FB062303}">

    Where {0E1DE20C-F77B-45A6-BAE8-0F63FB062303} is the GUID of an Ivanti Automation resource stored in the database. Resource Package type is not supported.

  • Supported authentication types in requests are: no auth, basic auth and OAuth 2.0. Other types of authentication might also work, but those are out of the scope of this task.
  • Note that if the target host is an HTTPS one, users should add this into the request code (Postman request does not do that).:

    Host: https://<URI>
