POST / GET request issues

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm trying to get data from http://poe.trade/ - disclaimer, although this site is about a game, my script will not in any way interact directly with the game in any way. The script is just to get data from the site.

To explain how it works - you submit a POST request and a custom URL is returned, then you do a GET request on that URL and you get the final URL you want.

 

First issue:

Now, I've tried doing so by using https://apitester.com/ and the first phase works. Here's how it looks like at APITester:

Request Headers
POST /search HTTP/1.1
Host: poe.trade
Accept: */*
User-Agent: Rigor API Tester
Content-Length: 43
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Request Body
online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion

When I submit this, the response I get is this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<title>Redirecting...</title>
<h1>Redirecting...</h1>
<p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme">http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme</a>.  If not click the link.

So I then do a GET request for 'http://poe.trade/search/ioritewoteteme', which results in this response:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
<title>Redirecting...</title>
<h1>Redirecting...</h1>
<p>You should be redirected automatically to target URL: <a href="http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito">http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito</a>.  If not click the link.

Great, this link (http://poe.trade/search/inamotezuakito) is exactly what we want.

However, when I try to do the same in autoit, the result is quite different:

Global Const $HTTP_STATUS_OK = 200

$test = HttpPost("http://poe.trade/search", "/online=x&name=kaom%27s%20heart&league=incursion")
ClipPut($test)
MsgBox(1, "", $test)

Func HttpPost($sURL, $sData = "")
    Local $oHTTP = ObjCreate("WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5.1")

    $oHTTP.Open("POST", $sURL, False)
    If (@error) Then Return SetError(1, 0, 0)

    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Host", "poe.trade")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("User-Agent", "Rigor API Tester")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Accept", "*/*")
    $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("Content-Type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded")


    $oHTTP.Send($sData)
    If (@error) Then Return SetError(2, 0, 0)

    If ($oHTTP.Status <> $HTTP_STATUS_OK) Then Return SetError(3, 0, 0)

    Return SetError(0, 0, $oHTTP.ResponseText)
EndFunc

The code above returns: ' 謟 '

Any ideas as to what I am doing incorrectly?

 

Second issue:

Once I get the final link using APITester and do a GET on that i get a bunch of hieroglyphs. A friend of mine advised that the data is GZiped, which is a pain in the butt to be honest. However, apparently curl can uncompres that.

How would I go about it?

 

Thanks

      Hi All
      i am currently trying to add a function to my project that can send SMS, i have gone with Twilio for the sms service that use a REST API.
      I have never worked with an API before, and could use some help.
      I can get my function working with using cURL.exe and copy past command from the website with the following code. And thats great unfortunately i am have issue with character like æøå when sending a SMS appears like a box or ?. this does not happen if i do it from the website so it looks like a Unicode issue in curl.exe.
      I have done some searching on the forum and understand that i should be able to implement this curl command with the WinHTTP UDF from @trancexx so i don't need a third part exe and it might fix my charater issue.
      Unfortunately i really don't understand how i am to change curl commands to the WinHTTP and i was hoping some good maybe give me an example i could learn from.
      Thanks in advanced
      i have removed the AuthToken number from the script.
      _SendSMS("00000000","SomeOne","SMS body info") Func _SendSMS($SendTo,$SendFrom,$Msgtxt) $AccountSID = "ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc" $AuthToken = "Auth Token number" $Data = '"https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/'&$AccountSID&'/Messages.json"'& _ '-X POST \ --data-urlencode "To=+45'&$SendTo&'" \ --data-urlencode "From='&$SendFrom&'" \ --data-urlencode "Body='&$Msgtxt&'" \ -u '&$AccountSID&':'&$AuthToken&'' ShellExecute(@ScriptDir&"\curl.exe","-k "&$Data) ;~ curl 'https://api.twilio.com/2010-04-01/Accounts/ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc/Messages.json' -X POST \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'To=+4500000000' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'From=Reception' \ ;~ --data-urlencode 'Body=Test Body' \ ;~ -u ACbb765b3180d5938229eff8b8f63ed1bc:[AuthToken] EndFunc

      Hello friends, i have a working curl command that show informations about my account on binance.com, but_it dont work with autoit code without curl.exe.
      I want to do it without curl, because the whole process much Slower_ with StdoutRead (I want get the response in variable.)
      My Curl command in Autoit:
      This 2 are works, but_ i would like to do it without curl.exe
      $apikey="XYZ" sCommand = @ScriptDir & '\curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: ' & $apikey & '" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?' & $request the same in .bat  file
      curl.exe -k -H "X-MBX-APIKEY: XYZ" -X GET "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account?timestamp=1514917812000&signature=85bdee77e53cd521e1d5229fbfb459d53799c42b3fa4596d73f1520fad5f965a" (I use curl with -k option which allows curl to make insecure connections, because there is problem with the sites certificate, (cURL error 60))
       
      I tried many variations, this is the latest... I cant get the same response.
      curl $error message (I changed ): {"code":-2015,"msg":"Invalid API-key, IP, or permissions for action."}
      autoit version $error message (Response code:400): Mandatory parameter 'timestamp' was not sent, was empty/null, or malformed.
       
      $request = $query & '&signature=' & $signature $oHTTP = ObjCreate("winhttp.winhttprequest.5.1") $oHTTP.Open("GET", "https://api.binance.com/api/v3/account", False) $oHTTP.SetRequestHeader("X-MBX-APIKEY", $apikey) $oHTTP.Send($request) $oReceived = $oHTTP.ResponseText $oStatusCode = $oHTTP.Status If $oStatusCode <> 200 then MsgBox(4096, "Response code", $oStatusCode) EndIf

      HttpHeaderWatcher v1.0.1.3
       

      Some time ago, some members asked how to see the Http Requests.
      There are quite a few external applications but not in AutoIt!
      HttpHeaderWatcher in association with WinPcap, very modestly solves this lack.
       
      Once done this http watcher, i asked me : why not Re-build a WinHttp Request in AutoIt from a selected Request in one Click ?
      So i have added a "Create au3" button who open the WinHttp Request of your choice in AutoIt format in SciTE Editor.
      Voila voila, hope it can help ! 
      Buttons were made online with chimply.com the easy and free buttons generator !

      Hi all,
      I have a bit of code that works on my old Win10 PC, that fails on my new Win10 PC, and I think the only significant difference is the version of Autoit - old PC has 3.3.12, new has 3.3.14.
      I couldn't find anything mentioned in the change logs though, so perhaps I'm wrong.
      Anyway, the code to replicate my issue is:
      Test('username', 'DOMAIN') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('localun', 'DOMAIN') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test(' ', ' ') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('', '') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('localun', '') ; THIS ERRORS: ;Test('', 'DOMAIN') Func Test($un, $dom) $compName = 'PCNAME' $FullName = '.' $Description = '.' ; get the WIM object $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts:\\" & $compName & "\root\cimv2") ; get default user full name and description $objAccount = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='" & $un & "',Domain='" & $dom & "'") If IsObj($objAccount) Then $FullName = $objAccount.FullName $Description = $objAccount.Description EndIf ConsoleWrite($FullName & @CRLF) ConsoleWrite($Description & @CRLF) Return EndFunc  
      On my old PC this code will output just . and . for each of those line currently commented out. Which is fine.
      On my new PC any of those commented out lines of code cause an error, and the script won't even compile.
      $objAccount = $objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='" & $un & "',Domain='" & $dom & "'") $objAccount = $objWMIService^ ERROR I'm very much a newb with the WMI stuff and objects, but it looks like the .Get property is failing when either $un or $dom aren't valid in v3.3.14, whereas in 3.3.12 the .Get would fail to return an object, which is then caught by the If statement.
      Am I on track with this? Is there some new/better way to code the example so that 3.3.14 will compile it?
