    • Anonymous - No authorization is required.
    • Password - Authentication is based on a login and a password.
    • By API key - This option allows you to select API key. Selected key is used to generate JWT token for request, which lets you skip the authorization header.
      WARNING: This works only for Synerise API for Synerise users.

Examples of use


In this example, you can launch a workflow which retrieves a Synerise catalog by means of HTTP protocol and send it further to a SFTP server. If needed, the workflow can perform a transformation of data retrieved from the catalog in order to meet data structure requirements in the SFTP server.

Important: If you decide to use the Data Transformation node you must build a data transformation workflow.
