Data requests: Edit page

Review and edit a data request implementation in your NLX Dialog Studio workspace

Access a data request

To access a particular data request, open Data requests from your workspace menu and select the one you'd like to view:

Duplicate, Save, & Test

In the top right of your data request's page, you'll find the Duplicate, Save, and Test options.

  • Duplicate: For cloning the data request, including its implementation and model setup. This is also an alternative approach if renaming your data request is necessary

  • Save: For committing all changes made while on the data request's edit page

  • Test: For testing the response model and/or the request model of your data request

Testing your data request

Quickly confirm your data request is set up and configured properly by using the Test feature:

Sample setup:

 curl -X POST
 -H 'content-type: application/json' -d '{ "variables": [{ "variableId": "Profile", "payload": { "email": "
" } }] }'

The sample endpoint should receive a POST request with a body that sends the variableId and payload attribute. The response returns the resolvedVariables attribute with variableId variable and value object that can be mapped

  • Select Response model tab > Select the type of object returned. In this example, the value attribute returns an Object with attributes firstName, lastName, and id

  • Select Request model tab > Add the payload field. In this example, the payload field is email

  • Click the Implementation tab and switch to External mode > Add the URL for the endpoint in the URL field

  • Add the necessary headers, if applicable. Some webhook endpoints need an API key. For this example, none is needed

  • Click Save

  • Click Run Test to test the endpoint

The response should look identical to your expected response, indicating a successful setup.

Description & Tags

If set up, a short description and any tags given to the data request display under the data request name. You may add or modify these in the data request's Settings.
