REST API - Post XML data with HTTP

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I'm in the making of a script that needs to post XML data through HTTPS to our ServiceDesk Plus MSP service. I'm running into trouble because I have never made any scripts using HTTP with POST and I cannot see what I'm doing wrong here.

Can someone help me or should I find help somewhere else?

$URLSDP="" ;REMOVED - cannot publish this. this is the HTTPS url to our ServiceDesk
$TechnicianKey="" ;REMOVED
$ID="" ; Request ID

$sPostData = "OPERATION_NAME=ADD_NOTE&INPUT_DATA=<Operation><Details><Notes><Note><isPublic>false</isPublic><notesText>Text added to the note</notesText></Note></Notes></Details></Operation>&format=XML"
$oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1")
$oHTTP.Open("POST", $URLSDP & "/sdpapi/request/"& $ID & "/note?TECHNICIAN_KEY="& $TechnicianKey, False)
$oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "xml")
$oHTTP.Send($sPostData)
$oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText
$oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status

ConsoleWrite($oStatusCode & @CRLF)
ConsoleWrite($oReceived & @CRLF)
If $oStatusCode = 200 Then
    ;Process the response $oReceived
    ;ConsoleWrite(@CRLF & "Response" & @CRLF & $oReceived & @CRLF)
Else
    MsgBox(16, "Error " & $oStatusCode, $oReceived, 7)
EndIf

Response:

<operation name="POST"><result><status>Failed</status><message>Invalid operation</message></result></operation>

Search for some HttpDebugger to see how exactly header look like.

I suggest you to do something like this:

$objHTTP.open ("POST", "url", False)
$objHTTP.setRequestHeader ("Content-Type", "text/xml;charset=UTF-8")
$objHTTP.setRequestHeader("Content-Length",StringLen($YourXMLText))
$objHTTP.setRequestHeader("Connection","If is needed")
$objHTTP.setRequestHeader("User-Agent","If is needed")
$objHTTP.send ($YourXMLText)

Saludos

      About AutoIt-API-WS
      AutoIt-API-WS is a light weight web server with expressive syntax, with the sole purpose of wrapping your existing AutoIt app with little to no effort.
      With AutoIt-API-WS you can send and receive data between any application or framework, as long they can handle HTTP requests, which is an industry standard today.
      Like my other communcations UDF AutoIt-Socket-IO AutoIt-API-WS is heavily inspired from the big boys, but this time its Laravel and Ruby on Rails.
      Features Highlights
      No external or internal dependencies required RESTful mindset when designed Expressive syntax Small codebase Heavy use of Michelsofts Dictionary object Limitations
      Not complient with any RFC, so something important could be missing. Time will tell! One persons slow loris attack will kill the process forever. Example of implemetnation (With screenshots)
      This is a basic cRud operation with the RESTful mindset in use.
      #include "API.au3" #include <Array.au3> _API_MGR_SetName("My APP DB adapter") _API_MGR_SetVer("1.0 BETA") _API_MGR_SetDescription("This adapter allows you to get this n that") _API_MGR_Init(3000) _API_MGR_ROUTER_GET('/users', CB_GetUsers, 'string sortBy', 'Get all users, sortBy can be either asc or desc. asc is default') _API_MGR_ROUTER_GET('/users/{id}', CB_GetUsersById, 'int id*', 'Get user by id') While _API_MGR_ROUTER_HANDLE() WEnd Func DB_GetUsers() Local $userA = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") Local $userB = ObjCreate("Scripting.Dictionary") $userA.add('id', 1) $userA.add('name', 'TarreTarreTarre') $userA.add('age', 27) $userB.add('id', 2) $userB.add('name', @UserName) $userB.add('age', 22) Local $aRet = [$userA, $userB] Return $aRet EndFunc Func CB_GetUsers(Const $oRequest) Local $aUsers = DB_GetUsers() If $oRequest.exists('sortBy') Then Switch $oRequest.item('sortBy') Case Default Case 'asc' Case 'desc' _ArrayReverse($aUsers) EndSwitch EndIf Return $aUsers EndFunc Func CB_GetUsersById(Const $oRequest) Local Const $aUsers = DB_GetUsers() Local $foundUser = Null For $i = 0 To UBound($aUsers) -1 Local $curUser = $aUsers[$i] If $curUser.item('id') == $oRequest.item('#id') Then $foundUser = $curUser ExitLoop EndIf Next If Not IsObj($foundUser) Then Return _API_RES_NotFound(StringFormat("Could not find user with ID %d", $oRequest.item('#id'))) EndIf return $foundUser EndFunc When you visit http://localhost:3000 you are greeted with this pleasent view that will show you all your registred routes and some extra info you have provided.

      When you visit http://localhost:3000/users the UDF will return the array of objects as Json
       
      And here is an example of http://localhost:3000/users/1

      Hello,
      once more I have to see, that my knowledge about XML is too poor, even to use this existing XML UDF
      If it should be a better approach to make use of StringRegEx, or maybe a totally different approach, any suggestions will be mostly appreciated.
       
      I downloaded the ZIP XML_1.1.1.13 and tried to get how to use it from the sample AU3 files included in that ZIP file, well, I don't really get it😵
       
       
      What I want to do:
      My mobile phone's backup contain all the contacts in an XML file. This is an example of such a file, backupinfo.xml, shortened to show just one fictive entry:
       
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ContactRecords> <contact> <structuredName> <displayName>Max Mustermann</displayName> <givenName>Max</givenName> <familyName>Mustermann</familyName> <prefixName /> <middleName /> <suffixName /> <phoneticGivenName /> <phoneticMiddleName /> <phoneticFamily /> </structuredName> <organization> <company>Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH</company> <department /> <title /> </organization> <phones> <phone> <number>07652 881 8181</number> <type>home</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>0 800 435 2758</number> <type>work</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+49 160 4321 222</number> <type>mobile</type> <customLabel /> </phone> </phones> <emails /> <addresses /> <ims /> <WebSites /> <Events /> <note /> <nickName /> <photo /> <netPhone /> <groups> <group> <groupName>Ungrouped</groupName> </group> </groups> </contact> </ContactRecords>  
      Basically I want to search my mobile's contacts for phone numbers to, to see, what contact they belong to. Propably it will make the task much more easy, when standardizing the mobile's contact XML to hold all numbers in "international-notation-without-any-whitespaces" (thats no problem):
       
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <ContactRecords> <contact> <structuredName> <displayName>Max Mustermann</displayName> <givenName>Max</givenName> <familyName>Mustermann</familyName> <prefixName /> <middleName /> <suffixName /> <phoneticGivenName /> <phoneticMiddleName /> <phoneticFamily /> </structuredName> <organization> <company>Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH</company> <department /> <title /> </organization> <phones> <phone> <number>+4976528818181</number> <type>home</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+498004352758</number> <type>work</type> <customLabel /> </phone> <phone> <number>+491604321222</number> <type>mobile</type> <customLabel /> </phone> </phones> <emails /> <addresses /> <ims /> <WebSites /> <Events /> <note /> <nickName /> <photo /> <netPhone /> <groups> <group> <groupName>Ungrouped</groupName> </group> </groups> </contact> </ContactRecords>  
      What I would like to get from the XML file as a result, e.g. searching the phone number "+491604321222"
      Present in XML  or not (true) if present then return the values for... type (mobile) givenname (Max) familyname (Mustermann) company (Schlosserei Mustermann GmbH) optional: Other node names and their values within that contact, when not "empty" (like in this examle <emails /> or <middlename />)  
      The values from #2 - #6 would be perfect when returned in a 2D Array, Col0 = name, Col1 = value.
      Regards, Rudi.

      goodmorning autoit team

      the first problem
      is when opening a request
      my forums api allow me to delete any post using the api key
      all functions work, i mean post / get
      but when i tried to use the delete verb it's gave me an html 404 error
      here is what am tried
      #include "WinHttp.au3" ; Open needed handles Global $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen() Global $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, "xxxxxxxx.com") ; Specify the reguest: Global $hRequest = _WinHttpOpenRequest($hConnect, "Delete", "/vb/Api/posts/10447/?hard_delete=true", default, default) _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "XF-Api-Key:xxxxx") _WinHttpAddRequestHeaders($hRequest, "XF-Api-User:xxxxx") ; Send request _WinHttpSendRequest($hRequest) ; Wait for the response _WinHttpReceiveResponse($hRequest) Global $sHeader = 0, $sReturned = 0 ; If there is data available... If _WinHttpQueryDataAvailable($hRequest) Then $sHeader = _WinHttpQueryHeaders($hRequest, $WINHTTP_QUERY_CONTENT_DISPOSITION) ;Or maybe: ; $sHeader = _WinHttpQueryHeaders($hRequest, BitOR($WINHTTP_QUERY_RAW_HEADERS_CRLF, $WINHTTP_QUERY_CUSTOM), "Content-Disposition") Do $sReturned &= _WinHttpReadData($hRequest) Until @error msgBox(64, "", $sReturned) endIf ; Close handles _WinHttpCloseHandle($hRequest) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen)  
      and here is the error message
      <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head> <title>403 Forbidden</title> </head><body> <h1>Forbidden</h1> <p>You don't have permission to access /vb/Api/posts/10447/ on this server.<br /> </p> </body></html>  
      i hope you can help me 
      thanks in advance

      I can TCP/IP in AutoIt, hence, make a HTTP deamon. Now, how can I HTTPS to use SSL !??
      Well, Apache has this "mod_proxy.so" module that can let me have SSL and what not is in Apache.
      All that is needed is to tell Apache what I wanna do by editing httpd.conf .
      # Implements a proxy/gateway for Apache. # 1. Open /Applications/XAMPP/etc/httpd.conf # 2. Enable the following Modules by removing the # at the front of the line. # - LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so # - LoadModule proxy_module modules/mod_proxy.so # - LoadModule proxy_http_module modules/mod_proxy_http.so # # 3. Copy and Paste below to the bottom of httpd.conf # <IfModule mod_proxy.c> ProxyRequests On <Proxy *> Order deny,allow Allow from all </Proxy> ProxyVia Off ProxyPreserveHost Off ProxyPass /home/ http://127.0.0.1:84/home/ ProxyPassReverse /home/ http://127.0.0.1:84/home/ SetEnv proxy-nokeepalive 1 # ..since we are not using "keep-alive", we are using "close" </IfModule> ...et voila  
      I'm using XAMPP ( https://www.apachefriends.org/download.html )
      and this is my solution to avoid coding in PHP, as I feel more comfortable coding in AutoIt.
      A "muli-thread or concurrency" can be done by forking the socket ( https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/199177-fork-udf-ish/ )
      but responses are under 20 ms., so I feel fine with a single thread.
      I modified an example ( attached below ), so can try out the concept.
      PS: I am not an Apache guru. I just discovered this and it opens a world of possibilities. In my case, I'm thinking of an API to query SQLite 
      PS2: I'm not gonna make Poll but do click like if you do
