    Sure, you could use Guzzle for example (this is most probably already installed as a dependency in your project, as Client to Zed request also use Guzzle behind the scenes, that’s way I would reuse it):

    $client = new GuzzleHttp\Client([
        'base_uri' => '<external_host>',
    ]);
    $response = $client->request('<METHOD>', '<endpoint>');
    
    if ($response->getStatusCode() === 200) {
        $content = (string)$response->getBody();
        //use the content for what every you want
    }
    

    The example above should be split, as the creation of the client should happen in the related Factory and be passed into a service which does the response parsing and act on the response result.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Yes, you could use curl, guzzle or whatever you like.
    A few weeks ago, we were having a discussion about when to use a client for external requests and when to do it from Zed directly: https://sprykercommunity.slack.com/archives/CKJRJM5FG/p1626076105439500
