HTTP Form Posts and the PeopleTools Integration Broker

By Chris Malek | Thu, Feb 3, 2011

When integrating with 3rd Party applications the question often comes up can the PeopleTools integration broker handle http from post data either sending or receiving. The short answer is no.

Outbound from PeopleSoft

PeopleTools does not have PeopleCode methods exposed to set the http header to:


Additionally, no methods exists to set form field values in the header. The alternative is to pass values in the Query string of the URL. Of course you can always post XML in the form body.

Inbound into PeopleSoft

The integration broker cannot handle inbound http form data. You can use an iscript for this. In the Integration broker your options are: header fields, query string fields, and xml post.
