how to check in a flow service if an external webservice is available


I need to build a flow service that regularly checks if an external json webservice is available.

Do you know if there is an existing service that can be used for this? I imagine a ping service of some sort.

kind regards Mikael

Ask the webservice provider if they have any ping or query service to check the status and you can use to build a resource monitoring service.

Yes that is the only approach you have to ping the WS endpoint and get the status in real-time monitoring scenario’s.


You can define a scheduler task and use http client service under wmPublic folder. So see if the service is available or not ?
