    This does not answer the question. Your link provides a way to make a REST call within a workflow which is the opposite of what the user asked for. – Dinerdo Jun 16 '16 at 23:38
  • It may not be what original poster was asking, but this exactly what I needed. But I hope there were any updates on this. This article seems to be old. Anyway, thank you @Marc! – Aamir Jun 17 '16 at 23:34
  • why just a link? No effort... this is not a MS site! – Marpio Dec 14 '17 at 10:06

I would suggest the best way would be to have a workflow that waits for a field to = x then you use the api to update an item and set the field to x.

I have shared how you could start a workflow in sharepoint online on office 365 by calling the REST API at _vti_bin/client.svc/ProcessQuery, basically you will need to do HTTP Post at the end point twice, one to get the workflow subscription and the other to trigger the workflow instance to start, find it here https://community.nintex.com/community/tech-blog/blog/2017/01/18/stronger-together-nintex-workflow-cloud-office-365

No, there are no coverage for workflow or taxonomy in SP REST API.

But you can use CSOM: Start SharePoint 2013 Workflows with JavaScript Client Object Model
