HTTP Client

📣 Note: This feature is unlocked by the HTTP Client extension.

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:
