Creating a resource with createResource will return an object containing an actions key, with the following properties:
const resource = {
actions: {
resource: {
invalidate: func,
invalidateId: func,
reset: func,
actionName1: {
perform: func,
invalidate: func,
actionName2: {
perform: func,
invalidate: func,
These functions can be imported in components and directly dispatched.
resource.invalidate and resource.invalidateId respectively invalidate the requests performed on the related resource and resource id.
resource.reset removes resources and requests linked to the resource from your state.
actionName.invalidate invalidates the related request.
actionName.perform performs the request, accepting the following object as an argument:


  1. 1.
    (urlParams): (map<urlParam:value>) An object to replace dynamic parameters in the URL (see actions config documentation)
  2. 2.
    (query): (map<queryParam:value>) An object to prepend a query to the URL
  3. 3.
    (body): (map<bodyParam:value>) An object to specify the body of the request (e.g. POST)
  4. 4.
    (onSuccess): ((normalizedPayload, otherArgs) : undefined) A hook which will be invoked after the request has performed successfully. Useful to update the UI accordingly, at the component level
  5. 5.
    (onFailure): ((error) : undefined) A hook which will be invoked when the request fails. Useful to update the UI accordingly, at the component level
  6. 6.
    (...otherArgs): (any) You can also pass any other args you may need in beforeHook, normalizer, metadataNormalizer, afterHook, and onSuccess. They will be forwarded to these functions, as an object


This example demonstrates a sample call to an action.
import { actionName1 } from './rest-easy/resource';
const args = {
urlParams: { userId: 1 },
query: { page: 2 },
body: { age: 21 },
onSuccess: () =>
console.log('Success! Component will update the UI accordingly!'),
onError: error => console.log('Failed with error: ', error),
const mapDispatchToProps = dispatch => ({
action1: (arg1, arg2) => dispatch(actionName1(args)),
action2: () => dispatch(actionName1()),
