How-to: Interact with virtual actors using scripting

Invoke the actor method for state management

Learn how to use virtual actors by calling HTTP/gRPC endpoints.

Invoke the actor method

You can interact with Dapr to invoke the actor method by calling HTTP/gRPC endpoint.

POST/GET/PUT/DELETE http://localhost:3500/v1.0/actors/<actorType>/<actorId>/method/<method>

Provide data for the actor method in the request body. The response for the request, which is data from actor method call, is in the response body.

Refer to the Actors API spec for more details.

Save state with actors

You can interact with Dapr via HTTP/gRPC endpoints to save state reliably using the Dapr actor state management capabaility.

To use actors, your state store must support multi-item transactions. This means your state store component must implement the TransactionalStore interface.

See the list of components that support transactions/actors. Only a single state store component can be used as the state store for all actors.
