Access APIs using the REST data source

The REST data source is a powerful integration in Budibase that allows you to connect to data over HTTP.

Add a new REST datasource

To add a new REST data source click:

  • Data > Sources > Add > Rest > Continue


Add additional configuration to your data source in the form of queries, default headers, authentication and variables. Use the Save button when you have completed your changes.


By default the REST data source will have a name like REST or REST-1, you can change this to something recognisable if desired.


A query is an individual request in the rest data source. Either create one from scratch or import an existing. For more details see: Rest Bindings
