How to use an HTTP request to restart an Approval action

I need to restart an Approval action (not an entire flow!) because we have users who suffer from the 30 day max timeout and not being able to approve. We need to preserve the original approval task link.

I've read that an HTTP request can do this but how?

That's handy and we will give it a try if no-one can provide the HTTP Request?

I searched the web could not find any way to restart the flow using http action (btw http action will need premium license, not sure if you know) but will follow the post to see if someone has implement else you have a lot of options to implement this with free connectors 😀
