How to use LUA in NAS to execute external REST API calls?

Hi People,


We're looking to perform REST API calls via a LUA script in the NAS using JSON objects.


In fact this has been singled out as a critical piece of work within the solution being implemented...


Has anyone in the community attempted to do this before?

I wanted to ask before I embark on this potentially complicated solution


Currently we're looking at installing OpenSSL and utilising LuaSocket, LuaSec and json.lua libraries...


This will allow UIM to potentially integrate with any other tool with a REST API.


Any advice welcome.


Kind Regards
