HTTP redirect for 307

I am working with the the http functionality to gather data from a variety of API's to write to Log Analytics. I have one API which requires the ability to handle a 307 redirect (details are below). Currently the Flow errors out at the 307 with a "Temporary Redirect" error. I'm not seeing any options to do http redirect or url forwarding in the http functionality.

 

Handling 307 redirects

When making REST or REST streaming calls, your product will need to handle 307 redirects. Also known as URL forwarding, a 307 Temporary Redirect response provides a new URL for the browser to resubmit a request.

When a 307 redirect happens, you'll need to make the call again with the new URL information. When you do this, you should cache the host and port number for use in future calls with that user/access token. Remember, each call counts toward the rate limit. Consider how your user is interacting with your product. Some users will press a button or choose a setting repeatedly, so if you make a call for every user action, it can impact rate limits very quickly. If a user makes a series of changes in rapid succession, you should only make an API call for the last (most recent) value.

For more information and an example, see How to Handle Redirects.

Re: HTTP redirect for 307

I'm having the same problem. I'm starting to learn about Flow, and I'm trying to call my API by building a custom connector. In postman, the api call works fine, but when I try to replicate this call in the custom connector, I get a 307 in my server. Were you able to solve it?

 

The server is IIS

Re: HTTP redirect for 307

After you make the original HTTP request you can check the Response Code as one of the properties it returns. Does this show you it as a 307? If so, you can query the response body for the redirect url a re-submit the http request, otherwise read the data.
