What to do if your operation isn't supported#

If this node doesn't support the operation you want to do, you can use the HTTP Request node to call the service's API.

You can use the credential you created for this service in the HTTP Request node:

  1. In the HTTP Request node, select Authentication > Predefined Credential Type.
  2. Select the service you want to connect to.
  3. Select your credential.

Refer to Custom API operations for more information.
