We are trying to implement a client side data provider as a component (ZEN) that will use JQuery to do rest calls to a desired URL, in this case, a %CSP.Rest service implemented by ourselves.

This component will be used within our application that is authenticated with a correct user configured on Caché management portal and therefore using one license unit. As we are using a Ajax call from client side this connection creates a new session that will use a new license.

We are using an F5 load balancer to route public traffic to our IS server. My goal is to block public access to the Management Portal, and only allow what we want to expose, such as REST/SOAP services. At the F5, they can block URL wildcards or specific ports, so those are our options.

Since the URLs for the web services are in the same path ([host]/csp/healthshare/[namespace]/*), I can't see any URL wildcards happening. That leads me to ports; is there a way to put services on a specific port for all services, and everything else stay on a standard web port?

I'm getting mad trying to get data from an external REST service that uses Basic Authentication from Ensemble. The BO worked fine when I was using a test server without authentification, but as soon as we need to go to production I cannot have it working.

So far, I've created the username/password at the credentials page (Ensemble-Configure-Credentials). I've setup the BO to use this credentials. But nothing happens.

I've tried with the Rest Client (addon for Mozilla), and using the same address, port and user/pwd works just fine.

REST and CSP Sessions


We are using Rest Service with inheritance of  %CSP.Rest, and we are having the following problem: when we receive 100 request from single IP adress - this creates 100 CSP sessions and takes 100 user licence for each request for few seconds. What can we do do about this? We've  set this parameter:

Parameter UseSession As Integer = 1;

Thank you in advance!

I'm trying to setup a REST server with CORS support. I have created a class that handles a specific part of the service (printer control). This class I have referenced in my main REST class by adding <Map Prefix="/print" Forward="myClass.PrintAPI" />

My main class does have its own <Route>s and handles CORS requests perfectly. But in my subclass OnHandleCorsRequest() is only run when requesting from same origin and never run when making a CORS request. I have set Parameter HandleCorsRequest = "true" in both my main REST class and the subclass.

Hello All,

I am just wondering if there is any inbuilt function or utility available in IRIS to clean up "null" elements from JSON e.g. I want to remove "null" elements from payload below before I do any processing with it.


recipients: [ 

{ "name":"Utsavi", "email":"utsavi@gmail.com"},

{ "name":"Utsavi 1", "email":"utsavi1@gmail.com"},

null, null


content:[null, {"title":"Test.pdf", "data":"ygwehfbnwfbhew"} ]


Thanks & Regards,

For those that, at some point, need to test what means that of ECP for horizontal escalability (computing power and/or users and processes concurrency), but they're lazy o have no much time to build the environment, configure the server nodes, etc..., I've just published in Open Exchange the app/sample OPNEx-ECP Deployment .

Our company is looking for someone with expert object script skills and experience developing with REST using Caché. We have an existing application that currently supports a mobile application and a web application. The API is up and running but we need another developer to add new features and keep up with demand.

Experience with Amazon AWS is highly desired as the api is running on Windows in EC2. Familiarity with GitHub is also required.

Pay can be negotiated on a per hour basis after you provide an estimate for the time required to complete a given feature.

Hi everybody,

I created my own REST service class by extending   EnsLib.REST.Service.

In some particular conditions of  the parameters of the request,  the REST  service should respond to the client with an HTTP status response code 400 "Bad request".

I read the article "RESTful Exception Handling "  and I try to use the suggested:

do ..ReportHttpStatusCode(400)

But the server seems ignore it and  get back to client  the 500 http response code.

Any suggestions?

I have a DB server (ser-app-db) where cache is installed as server.

I have a Web server (ser-app-w) where cache is installed as web server and configured as CSP gateway.

I followed the configuration guide (https://docs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY...) and ser-app-w perfectly display the CSP and CLS pages.


But that's not working for my REST service, for exemple with the REST sample:

CreateProperty with curl


I have a question about creating properties with curl.

I already did create properties in Java with the following command.

<DO db.%CreateProperty("TotalSteps","%Integer","$.TotalSteps")>

It created the property TotalSteps with the type %Integer and the data path $.TotalSteps (since the header of my data source is also TotalSteps).

Now I would like to create the same property in curl with the following command

We have a Cache database in Azure, and want to expose it as an OData source (link).

My first attempt was to use Microsoft's Visual Studio 2017 and Entity Framework to create the data models...but it seems as if EF and Cache don't work together.  (I do have those instructions from 2013, but they don't work.  (See other post. Best answer seems to be "migrate to IRIS 2019.1.")  

Is there any other form of OData support?

However it does not work.


I tried downloaded the v2.0 schema.json of the OpenAPI specification and pasted it on Postman with the parameters as speicifed, but I get this error message back:

I've added a REST service which worked fine on our test system but failed on the production environment because UnknownUser does not have %All set and I really don't want it set on production (in fact I've also switched it off on test).

Is there a way to allow a single REST service to have unauthorised access?

I was thinking adding a resource/role to UnknownUser specifically for that service but I've never touched on Users/Roles/Resources so I'm struggling to work out what needs adding where.

Hi All,
I am implementing REST API's in IRIS using the below link as a guide. 
I chose this approach so i could have a single entry point for requests regardless of namespace


a sample form the HIHLib.REST.Server class i am using is below. my question is does IRIS and CSP cache responses for requests to the CSP.REST class?
and if so what parameters or properties do i need to enable?
