Accept Bulk Data in IIB REST API

  • 1.  Accept Bulk Data in IIB REST API

    I have a requirement to expose IIB v10 REST API which should accept bulk data as JSON payload for a POST operation. Is there a limit on JSON payload imposed by IIB with respect to performance of IIB runtime and JSON parser?

    Hi Neeraj, 

    To begin with it's not best practice to process the single bulk of data via single rest end point via IIB but again that depends on the size of your bulk json. if its very small json it should be ok to process that. but consider the following designs based on your requirement if there are hundreds of records in your json and you need to process them inside message flow ie. insert into db or calling backend service etc 

    1. Go for async processing like MQ as communication layer which can handle the bulk messages more efficiently. if MQ available. 
    2. Got for file based processing. 
    3. If still needs to go with rest then also make it async processing
