You can trigger a custom action for that and call your API to query your db from there. You can find information about custom actions here: actions

i do that for weather API which comes as Key, but i need a clear instruction aboutt how to do that for HTTP API?

You can use the Requests library inside a custom action to make calls to your HTTP API.

It could be something like:

r = requests.get('<Employee Number>')
