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

      I was asking @eltorro serveral times for any support  for XML DOM wrapper (COM) - with no success  
          So I took matters into my hands ..... I want to present XMLWrapperEx.au3 - BETA Version
      Want to join to the project ?
       
      Here is some description:
      ; #INDEX# ======================================================================================================================= ; Title .........: XMLWrapperEx.au3 ; AutoIt Version : 3.3.10.2++ ; Language ......: English ; Description ...: Functions to use for reading and writing XML using msxml. ; Remarks .......: BETA Version ; Author ........: mLipok ; Version .......: "1.1.1.01" ; _XML_MiscProperty_UDFVersion() #CS This UDF is created on the basis of: https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/19848-xml-dom-wrapper-com/ For this reason, I attach also the last known (to me) previous version ($_XMLUDFVER = "1.0.3.98" _XMLDomWrapper_1.0.3.98_CN.au3 ) For the same reason I continue to recognize the achievements of the work of my predecessors (they are still noted in each Function header). . . . . !!!!!!!!! This is BETA VERSION (all could be changed) !!!!!!!!! . . . WORK IN PROGRES INFORMATION: For now 2015-09-01 the descripion (Function Header) can not entirely correctly describe the function. TODO: in many places I used "TODO" as a keyword to find what should be done in future . I want to: PREVENT THIS: The unfortunate nature of both the scripts is that the func return results are strings or arrays instead of objects. .     I want to: USE THIS CONCEPT:     .   All function should use Refernce to the object as first Function parameter     .   All function should return in most cases objects. There should be separate functions to Change Object collection to array     .   All function should use COM Error Handler in local scope.     .   All function should return @error which are defined in #Region XMLWrapperEx.au3 - @ERROR Enums     .    All function should have the same naming convention     .    All variables should have the same naming convention     .    There should not to be any Global Variable - exception is $g__oXMLDOM_Events     .   It should be possible easy to use XML DOM Events     .        https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms764697(v=vs.85).aspx     .   It should be possible easy to Debug     .    Ultimately, you should be able to do anything with your XML without having to use your own Error Handler. #CE  
      More info inside zip archive.
      This UDF can be downloaded from here:
      REMARK:
      This UDF was formerly named:   XMLWrapperEx.au3

      This is yet another HTTP server written in AutoIt3.
      Originally based on jvanegmond's POST HTTP Server.
      It is designed to be used either as is, or by scripts for a HTTP communication between any browser and AutoIt3.
      It can run PHP and AutoIt3 CGI, if setup in the settings ini file.

      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.
