Butler HTTP Request: GET with Headers

I have been using Butler's HTTP Requests features to POST updates to 3rd party software.  I use the "with headers" option so that I can set HTTP headers which are required for the API.

I am hoping to do something similar but with a GET request.  Is there anyway to pass the "with headers" option on a GET request?  If not, is there a good workaround for this?

I stumbled upon this same issue and your question prompted me to try again. And I found a way to do this.

post to url "" with payload "{\"yourURL\" : \"\"}"

My endpoint has a request module which will provide the header and yourURL  and return a json which will be available to Butler as {httpresponse}

You will notice that there is cardidlong in it. I had put it in the CRM record.

It can be make for general use by have a different payload since the request module can accept variables....for example

{"yourURL" : "", "yourAuth" : "your specific authorization string for Authorization", "yourConType" : "your content type details for Content-Type" }

 I have changed the endpoint to handle the above. See if it works for you. We can talk details later.

@Ryan Carlson if you can't see the option in the interface that means it's not available I'd say, the only workaround I can think of would be to post to a Zapier webhook, add the headers in there and then repost.

You could also do this in Trellinator which runs under Google Apps Script, you can read more about it here:

Thank you for confirming that this feature is not supported in the core product.

Zapier would definitely work (We are using this for some other automations).  For our use case, I am leaning against Zapier due to cost concerns.  I want to sync a lot of cards frequently and Zapier's task based pricing is not ideal for this.  

Trellinator looks interesting so thank you for providing that alternative.  I will check it out.
