OnRequestSend Handlers

The OnRequestSend handler can be used in Synchronous and Asynchronous service outbound operations. It allows you to manipulate the message content before it get to the subscribing node and before any transformations happen. You can use this to customize the message or the connector properties specific to a node.

From PeopleBooks:

Any content data that is changed on the message or XMLDoc is sent to the subscribing node or used within a transformation.

  • Types of Service Operations: Synchronous and Asynchronous
  • Direction Used: Outbound Service Operations
  • Inputs: Message Object of outbound request
  • Outputs: Manipulated message object to be sent to subscribing node.
