This function executes an HTTP request. It supports HTTP methods GET, POST, PATCH, PUT and DELETE.

The HTTP response is cached in memory. A response consists of a status code, a number of headers and a body, any of which can be queried by using the corresponding TurboIntegrator functions: HttpResponseGetStatusCode, HttpResponseGetHeader, and HttpResponseGetBody.

The Planning Analytics Engine only keeps one HTTP response at a time. A new successful HTTP request execution update and overwrites the cached response.

The Planning Analytics Engine only keeps the first 100 KB of a response body and discards the rest. This prevents running out of evaluation memory for strings.

For convenience, the engine reuses the cookie it found in the previous responses in new requests when the Cookie header is absent.
