5.1.8 Internet access

Inside Anatella, most of the actions that are connecting to a remote cloud service are actually using a small utily named “cURL” to manage the internet connection.


As an example, the following actions are using cURL to connect to the internet:

The clip0426 DownloadAndUpload action (see section 5.22.1), The clip0427 Multiple DownloadAndUpload action (see section 5.22.2), The clip0428 generic REST API call action (see section 5.22.3), The clip0429 VAT check action (see section 5.22.4), The clip0430 Tableau Publish action (see section 5.22.5), The clip0431 S3ListFilesInBucket action (see section 5.22.6), The clip0432 S3DownloadFile action (see section 5.22.8),
The clip0433S3UploadFile action (see section 5.22.9).


Using the “cURL” tool to access internet services has several advantages:


cURL supports a wide range of internet protols directly “out of the box”.
