Send HTTP request and get a response

Hi Guys,

 

is there a sample code where I can  basically send a HTTP request given a URL and authentication and handle the JSON response?

 

Thanks

Hi.

Set request=##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
Set request.Server="something.com"
Set request.Port="some_port"
Set request.Username="some_username"
Set request.Password="some_password"

Set status=request.Get("some_url")
Do request.HttpResponse.Data.Rewind()
Set jsonString=request.HttpResponse.Data.Read(request.HttpResponse.Data.Size,.sc)

Set jsonObject={}.%FromJSON(jsonString)
Write jsonObject."some_property"
...

Something like that...

Regards,

Hi

Set jsonObject={}.%FromJSON(jsonString) doesn't seems to work and couldn't find %FromJSON in Docs is this available in Ensemble 2014 which I'm using?

thanks

Sure, here's one:

set req = ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
set req.SSLConfiguration="MBTA" // Set this up in the management portal under Security Management > SSL/TSL Configurations; this is the SSLConfig's "Name"
// For HTTP Basic authentication, simple route is e.g.:
set req.Username = "foo"
set req.Password = "bar"
// For other modes, e.g.:
do req.SetHeader("Authorization","Bearer abcd")
set sc = req.Get("https://api-v3.mbta.com/routes")
// TODO: check sc / $$$ThrowOnError(sc)
// TODO: check req.HttpResponse.StatusCode to make sure it's 200 and error handle appropriately
set obj = {}.%FromJSON(req.HttpResponse.Data)
zw obj // There's your object!

sorry also set obj = {}.%FromJSON(req.HttpResponse.Data) is not working, is this available in Ensemble 2014?

Thanks

mybe you mean this ##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%ConvertJSONToObject(SampleJsonData,,.list) ,I tried that but I got an empty list?

in all cases, after doing the below, I should be able at lease read the JSON string but I'm getting an html file, so I'm missing something in my code?  

set Httprequest = ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()                   
Set Httprequest.SSLConfiguration="RTLS"                              
Set Httprequest.Server="serverurl"                 
Set Httprequest.Https=1                                              
Set Httprequest.Timeout=30                                           
set Httprequest.ContentType="application/json"                       
Do Httprequest.SetHeader("Accept","text/plain") set Httprequest.Username="user"                      
set Httprequest.Password="password"                              
S stat= Httprequest.Get("someurl")

Set Resp=Httprequest.HttpResponse.Data.Read()

Status= 1 justteslls you tht the HTTP connection was processed OK.
Next you need to take a look into your response object.

set res=Httprequest.HttpResponse
in terminal then ZW res to see in the Status is 200 OK
otherwise what you see I  res.Data might be just an error page.
Which is also OK for HTTP but not for your content.

• property ReasonPhrase as %String;

This is the human readable reason that goes with the StatusCode.

• property StatusCode as %Integer;

The HTTP status code. This is useful to determine if the request was successful. Look in the rfc for HTTP to see which codes are supported and what they mean. A human readable form of this code is stored as the ReasonPhrase

• property StatusLine as %String;

The HTTP status line. This is the first line of the response and signals if the request was successful or if there was a problem.

So I did the following from the Terminal:

set Httprequest = ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()                   
Set Httprequest.SSLConfiguration="RTLS"                              
Set Httprequest.Server="serverurl"                 
Set Httprequest.Https=1                                              
Set Httprequest.Timeout=30                                           
set Httprequest.ContentType="application/json"                       
Do Httprequest.SetHeader("Accept","text/plain")
 
set Httprequest.Username="user"                      
set Httprequest.Password="password"                              
S stat= Httprequest.Get("someurl")

W stat
1

so given the status =1 that means everything went ok isn't if not how can I check?

then I did the following to read the JSON file : 
Set Resp=Httprequest.HttpResponse.Data.Read()

but when I cheked what's in Resp I get the below html output:

I thought I'll be getting a JSON string, FYI I'm supposed to a get a Token in a JSON file?

Thanks

Hi.
You are getting pure html, not a JSON serialized string. You need the correct URL/port where the REST server is listening.
