I am trying to setup my workflow for SharePoint in which it needs to make a call to an external server using POST on a HTTP web service. I am new to setting this up and created the following request headers and body -

Request Headers

Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,/;q=0.8
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Request body


I have built 2 different dictionaries to do this with, one for the headers and one for the body.

Dictionary8 -

Accept - String -
Content-Type - String - application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Dictionary9 -

appName - String - Current Item:App Name
serverName - String - Current Item:Server Name

When I submit this it does not work, I have used the same headers and body in a test request in Fiddler and it works. Is something configured wrong?

First you have to build DynamicValue:

Properties for this activity should look like this:

Then you have to place HttpSend activity in the WF designer:

And pass it RespContent variable which you have built in the first step:

  • Hi. Thanks for your response. So it looks like I have to submit using application/json;odata=verbose and there is no way to submit using my current content type of application/x-www-form-urlencoded. So I will need to reconfigure my app to accept the content type if this is correct. Thanks. Commented Nov 11, 2014 at 10:41
