HTTP POST requests with JSON ?

6 posts in this topic

My friends would like to know how to use AutoIt to perform an HTTP POST request to a URL.

For example in Virustotal there is a python script that does this exact action to send a url for scanning.

is there a UDF that helps with this.

Thank you for any help.

Hi,

You can send HTTP requests with POST-data using the WinHtpp UDFs (link in my signature).

You should be able to find a JSON-parser in the forum, too. Or simply use String... functions.

If you do use willichan's example don't forget TCPStartup at the beginning as well as changing the host, user agent and POST URL.

I've used WinHttp and it's pretty decent.

      hi guys !
      how are you ? fine ? yeahhh
      Here is my problem:
      I have 2 autoit applications, a.exe and b.exe
      In a.exe, i call b.exe with a json as parameter:
      FileWrite("N:\+++ Dev\ClientServeur\FolderMonitor.nca", "lejson in A:" & Json_Encode($json_tmp)& @CRLF) Run(@ScriptDir & "\FolderMonitor.exe " & Json_Encode($json_tmp) )                        
              In program B:
      ;Firstline of program: FileWrite("N:\+++ Dev\ClientServeur\FolderMonitor.nca", @CRLF & "json in B:" & $CmdLine[1] & @CRLF)        
              Output:
                     
              lejson in A:{"DOSSIERS":{"Dossier_Hidden":"N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\","Dossier_du_script":"N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\","Fichier_Historique":"N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\Historique.log","Fichier_DEBUG":"N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\FolderMonitor.nca"}}
              json in B  :{DOSSIERS:{Dossier_Hidden:N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\,Dossier_du_script:N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\,Fichier_Historique:N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\Historique.log,Fichier_DEBUG:N:\\+++ Dev\\ClientServeur\\FolderMonitor.nca}}
      As you see, i lost my quote in my json so it's au problem to parse my json.
      I use THIS library
      I tried different type of encoding (ex JSON_STRICT_PRINT), but i don't think that it's the problem. Maybe i'm wrong
       
      thanks
      Nicolas.

      Hello there,
      since I spent some time to access the REST-API of the web shop system Shopware, I'd like to share a few lines to make life easier for others.
      With this you can access your Shopware database, reading and writing all kind of data. 
      Replies are JSON style.
      To work with JSON I usually depend on either just own AutoIt string operations or this AutoIt library:
      ; File        : Json.au3 (2015.01.08)
      ; Purpose    : A Non-Strict JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) Parser UDF
      ; Author    : Ward
      $UserName="xxxx" ;Shopware credentials of Shopware user who has the API checkbox ticked $PassWord="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" ;API-Key of this user, NOT the Password $URL="www.XXX.com/api/" $Command="orders/64682?useNumberAsId=true" ;A list of commands and options is available through shopware REST-API help; Here we read order number 64682 $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://" & $URL & $Command , False) $oHTTP.SetCredentials($UserName, $PassWord, 0) $oHTTP.Send() $response = $oHTTP.ResponseText ConsoleWrite ($response & @CRLF & @CRLF)

      Hello.  I have a program that has used ADO database connection to return a query and then subsequently put the query results into an array using getrows.  See snippet below:
      $constrim="DRIVER={SQL Server};SERVER=xxx-xxxxx\CSC;DATABASE=xxxxxxxxx;uid=xxxxxxxxxx;pwd=xxxxxxxxxxxx;" $adCN = ObjCreate ("ADODB.Connection") ; <== Create SQL connection $adCN.Open ($constrim) ; local $sQuery = "select * from tbl_Apps"                     ; get all applications in the database local $oAppRecordSet = $adCN.Execute($sQuery) local $aAppsInDB = $oAppRecordSet.Getrows(5000) With the code above I can perform array operations very efficiently. 
      Now I need to get this data via JSON which is working (using Ward's JSON UDF)  but the data set returned is large (approx 4MB) and I'm wondering what is the most efficient way to get this data into an array.  
      Dim $obj = ObjCreate ("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1") $obj.Open("GET", $URL, false) $obj.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/json") $obj.Send() $json = JSON_decode( $obj.ResponseText ) Any help would be appreciated!!

      I'm trying to get an array from a website so that I can just get the url, but I am not sure how. I read a bit of arrays but I have a feeling I'd have to be writing a lot more than what I should be. I will include the script I have so far and the API url for what I want.
       
      API: https://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1 (I want the 'url' array that contains the url)
       
      Code:
      #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <Inet.au3> #include <Array.au3> $site = _INetGetSource('http://api.fast.com/netflix/speedtest?https=true&token=YXNkZmFzZGxmbnNkYWZoYXNkZmhrYWxm&urlCount=1') MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Title", $site[1])
