Mapping REST Data Types to OutSystems Data Types

When consuming REST API Methods in your module, OutSystems automatically generates the Structures for the Request and Response from the example you provide for them and maps the attributes into OutSystems Data Types as follows:

JSON example OutSystems Data Type Comments
{"quantity": 123456789} Long Integer Highest value: 2^63-1
{"totalprice": 12345678901, "amount": -3935.120} Decimal If the value is an integer, but greater than or equal to 2^63, a decimal parameter is created.
{"createdon": "2014-12-31T23:59:59+01:00", "shippedon": "2015-01-01T19:00:00.256"} Date Time If the ISO date contains information about the time zone, it is automatically converted to the local time of the server, with daylight savings applied.
{"scheduledstart": "/Date(1388534400000)/"} Date Time WCF format
{"createdon": "2014-12-24"} Date Format: YYYY-MM-DD
{"canupdate": true} Boolean
{"name": "Christine Sharp"} Text

Data that cannot be converted to one of the above data types is converted to Text.
