HTTP Services, formerly known as Remote Web Services, allow DreamFactory to extend its API by adding a generic interface to connect to remote web services. HTTP services are also treated like native services in regards to role-service-access, lookup usage, live API documentation, and caching. With DreamFactory managing the service, many of the complex details of the remote web service can be hidden from the client. Service credentials, URL parameters, and headers can all be configured once and stored on the instance. This provides the client a simple, secure, and consistent way to access any remote web service via the DreamFactory REST API.
