Hi all, I’m trying to launch executions of a workflow via HTTP requests. Is there a GET method to start execution of a launch plan that’s already uploaded to the project/domain? Or are there only POST methods?

I’m trying to connect an HTML button to kick off an execution for a client demonstration. The person giving the demo (and the client) don’t want to see the Flyte dashboard. They want to use Tableau, which is tricky to set up a POST
HTML button or anchor link

it’s a mutating call, kicks off a workflow and a lot of database reads/writes etc.
a get is semantically incorrect i feel

Yeah, it makes sense. Just wanted to check before I do something crazy in Tableau. I’m not psyched that we’re restricted in this way in terms of having to use Tableau, but that’s the way it goes sometimes!
