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

      So I have been reading on how to use OAuth2 Service accounts(https://developers.google.com/identity/protocols/OAuth2ServiceAccount) and ran into an issue with autoit I can not solve. To keep this short to communicate to the Google API I need to use a JSON Web signature containing
      {Base64url encoded header}.{Base64url encoded claim set}.

      The Header and claim set work fine but I do not know how to convert them to a byte array using autoit. I have looked around on the forums and website but have not found anything that seems to work. Here is my code.
      #include-once #include <Array.au3> #include <Constants.au3> #include <Debug.au3> #include <File.au3> #include "Json.au3" #include <Process.au3> #include <ProgressConstants.au3> #include <String.au3> #include <WindowsConstants.au3> #include "WinHttp.au3" #include <UnixTime.au3> #include <StringConstants.au3> Global $UnixTime = _TimeGetStamp() $sJWTheader = '{"alg":"RS256","typ":"JWT"}' $sJWTclaimset = '{"iss":"Removed@forprivacy.com","scope":"https://www.googleapis.com/auth/spreadsheets","aud":"https://www.googleapis.com/oauth2/v4/token","exp":' & $UnixTime + 3600 & ',"iat":' & $UnixTime & '}' Local $taiData = DllStructCreate("BYTE[256]") Local $sText = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset) DllStructSetData($taiData, 1, StringToBinary($sText, 4)) Local $bvResult = DllStructGetData($taiData, 1) $sJWTSigature = $bvResult $sJWT = _base64($sJWTheader)&'.'&_base64($sJWTclaimset)&'.'&_base64($sJWTSigature) $POSTHeader = "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" $hOpen = _WinHttpOpen() $hConnect = _WinHttpConnect($hOpen, "https://www.googleapis.com/") $sRead = _WinHttpSimpleSSLRequest($hConnect, "POST", "oauth2/v4/token", Default, "grant_type=urn%3Aietf%3Aparams%3Aoauth%3Agrant-type%3Ajwt-bearer&assertion=" & $sJWT) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hConnect) _WinHttpCloseHandle($hOpen) ConsoleWrite($sRead & @LF) The whole bytes thing is beyond with what I know about auotit. I can't tell what I need to fix.

      I have been using the XML UDF successfully for sometime. I am now tring to add in error handling for some bad XML files I run into.
      $oXmlDoc = _XML_CreateDOMDocument(Default) _XML_Load($oXmlDoc,$sFileXML) ;<== ENTER XML FILE PATH HERE If @error Then ; ConsoleWrite(StringFormat("_XML_load error - @error = %s", @error) & @CRLF) ; ConsoleWrite("-" & $sFileXML & @CRLF) Exit -1 EndIf ConsoleWrite("-" & $sFileXML & @CRLF) ;If no specified nodes exist, log error and exit If Not _XML_NodeExists($oXmlDoc, "//Property") Then ; ConsoleWrite("No specified nodes exist" & @CRLF) Exit -1 EndIf ;Get number of Property nodes $oProperties = _XML_SelectNodes($oXmlDoc,"//Property/Data") $iNodeCount = @extended $oParents = $oXmlDoc.SelectSingleNode("//Property[@Name='Parents']/Data") There are no error upto this point. The XML file I am trying to handle has a Data node but when I try to
      $sParam = StringSplit($oParents.text, ";") I get a fatal error (requested action on object failed). How can I test for the problem before I try to do the string split? I tried using @error, and testing $oParents but no luck.
      Appreciate any tips.
