Note that not all data types are supported when sending out information to Bizagi OData services (HTTP POST).

For instance, Image or Files are not available for this use.

 

Values and format for data types

Whenever invoking a service via HTTP POST, consider the following notes on how you can send values according to each of the different data types:

For parameters of Boolean type, use "true" or "false" values.

For parameters of Numeric type, specify numbers without any formatting regarding thousands separator and use a dot (.) as decimal separator.

For parameters of DateTime type, specify dates using the standard format for interoperability (YYYY-MM-DD).

 

The above applies whenever executing a search and filtering it with parameters, or when sending information when executing an action that starts a process.
