# HTTP pull source

Kuiper provides built-in support for pulling HTTP source stream, which can pull the message from HTTP server broker and feed into the Kuiper processing pipeline. The configuration file of HTTP pull source is at etc/sources/httppull.yaml. Below is the file format.

#Global httppull configurations
default:
  # url of the request server address
  url: http://localhost
  # post, get, put, delete
  method: post
  # The interval between the requests, time unit is ms
  interval: 10000
  # The timeout for http request, time unit is ms
  timeout: 5000
  # If it's set to true, then will compare with last result; If response of two requests are the same, then will skip sending out the result.
  # The possible setting could be: true/false
  incremental: false
  # The body of request, such as '{"data": "data", "method": 1}'
  body: '{}'
  # Body type, none|text|json|html|xml|javascript|form
  bodyType: json
  # HTTP headers required for the request
  headers:
    Accept: application/json

#Override the global configurations
application_conf: #Conf_key
  incremental: true
  url: http://localhost:9090/pull

# Override the default settings

If you have a specific connection that need to overwrite the default settings, you can create a customized section. In the previous sample, we create a specific setting named with application_conf. Then you can specify the configuration with option CONF_KEY when creating the stream definition (see stream specs for more info).

Sample
