HTTP Request

Perform any HTTP request of any type.

This action effectively replaces the HTTP Get, Head and Post actions and those are now deprecated.

Examples

Inputs

URL
The full URL you want to call
Headers
List of key value pairs.
Separate keys from values with the : character. Make sure there are no extra spaces.
One header per line.
Example:
					Key:Value
					Content-Type:application/json
					Authorization:Bearer MY_ACCESS_TOKEN
					Other-Header:Some value
				
Query Parameters
List of key value pairs that you want to append to the URL as query parameters.
Same format as the Headers field.
File To Send
Some requests can have file attachments. Use this field to send them.
File To Save With Output
If you set this, the output will be saved to the selected file instead of the %http_data variable.
Timeout
Max number of seconds that the action will try to wait before giving up
Trust Any Certificate
Some HTTP (non-secure) servers will require you to enable this option so that the request can go through.

When Sending Content

If you want to send content to a server (with POST or PUT for example), you can send some data, a file, or both.

Body
A piece of text data that you want to send to the server. This can be a number of different things depending on what the server is expecting. This should be written exactly how the server is expecting it. Tasker will not change it at all. For example, if the server expects a key-value list with a POST request it's most probably expecting something like key1=value1&key2=value2&key3=value3.
File To Send
A file to send to the server. This can be sent in conjunction or instead of the Body depending on server requirements.
Note: if you send both Body and File, it'll send them both as a multipart/related request.
Note 2: If the server is expecting the file parameter to be named (usually on multipart/form-data requests) you can set the file's parameter name by prepending the file path with name:, for example, photo:Images/photo.jpg
