I need to just passthrough a RESTFUL web service through datapower to SIEBEL.
Can I find any examples on this.Just REST calls no SOAP at all.

Re: RESTFUL API calls in datapower2012-10-29T21:13:50Z in response to happyhomeHere is a document on RESTful basics:
If you just want to passthrough to backend system you may do so by:
- MPGW (Multi Protocol GateWay)
- with http or https FSH (Front Side Handler)
- request and response type "pass-thru"
- "default" policy
But in that case DataPower does nothing (no validation, no transformation, ...), not sure if that is what you want.
Re: RESTFUL API calls in datapower2012-10-30T16:33:45Z in response to HermannSWYes ,I do not need to do any validations and transformations.Just need to pass-through the request from Siebel to 3rd party vendor.
So I just would create the MPGW policy.
During the creation,does the 3rd party vendor URL be the value of my back-end url and the hostname /URL of Siebel be the value for my Front side handler?
If at all I need to use https ,then create a SFTP server front-side handler?

The 3rd party vendor URL will be the value of the MPGW's back-end URL
Siebel should send it's request to the hostname and port the front side handler is configured to listen on

Because you mention REST, I am assuming you need either HTTP or HTTPS (HTTP over SSL). If Siebel will be connecting to your DP MPGW using HTTPS, then you will want to configure an HTTPS front side handler. Otherwise, you can configure an HTTP front side handler. Actually, a MPGW allows multiple front side handlers to be attached to the service, so you could have both an HTTP and HTTPS front side handler configured on the same MPGW.
You mentioned SFTP server, and this is a completely different protocol (secure file transfer protocol) not typically used for REST.
