Key REST Concepts

The components of a REST operation are the following:
  • Resource Path
  • HTTP Verb
  • Body
  • Header

The URLs in the application’s REST URL name space provide the targets for the read (GET), write (POST), or update (PATCH) HTTP request types. The parameters of the REST operations always include a URL and an access token that authorizes access to the services. The following sections describe more about these concepts.
