HTTP Client

The GraphQL schema is provided with global fields to execute HTTP requests against a webserver and fetch their response.

Due to security reasons, the URLs that can be connected to must be explicitly configured (explained in Configuring what URLs can be HTTP-requested).

This query:

query {
  postData: _sendJSONObjectItemHTTPRequest(input: {
    url: ""
  } )

...retrieves this response:
