POSTing to url

 [1/5] from: jblake::arsenaldigital::com at: 12-Jul-2007 14:27

Ok. What am I doing wrong? I'm reading in a csv and using the data to post to a url. The url is a php script that opens a ticket in our ticketing system. I can read the file info. When I post, the response is that it's not seeing all of the items needed. I'm doing; result: read/custom http://x.x.x.x/api/portal.php reduce ['post mold host ip category customer] host, ip, category and customer are all populated from the csv. I tried putting ['post mold "?&host="host "&ip="ip ...snip..] but that didn't work either. I feel like I'm hitting all around it but not quite there yet. Thanks John

> result: read/custom http://x.x.x.x/api/portal.php reduce ['post mold > host ip category customer]
I would have thought this would give you the right format for the URL (subject to the keywords being right) (It's the way I do it, anyway): target: http:... parameters: rejoin ["host=" host "&ip=" ip "&cat=" category ....] read/custom target compose [POST (parameters)] If that fails, see what you get with: read join target ["?" parameters] You may need to escape some of the parameter values -- eg if your customer names contain "=", "&" or space. Is it possible you are being returned a HTML page that you need to parse for usable content? Sunanda

That's for the response. The page is returning the error designed for when it doesn't get the items. Here's the php code; ////////////////////////////// // Check for required field(s) if(!isset($_POST['host'], $_POST['ip'], $_POST['category'], $_POST['subject'], $_POST['site'], $_POST['customer'], $_POST['contact'], $_ POST['body'])) { echo <prov-req-response><transtatus>12112</transtatus><ticketnum>-1</ticketn um></prov-req-response> ; die(); // CATCH ERROR } ///////////////////// When I print my result; I see the "-1" line which is the error line. Let me try your suggestions. Thanks John

Hi John, there are url-encode.r functions floating about that might help. in extreme cases when you *know* your request is valid and still do not get the expected response I have had to (temporarily) disable rebols auto redirects ... here is a snippit ... ;; un-redirect monkey-patch inspired by Ryan Cole o: second get in system/schemes/http/handler 'open ora: find/tail o to-set-word 'response-actions poke first ora 16 pick first ora 4 page: read/custom compose/deep[POST (req) [Cookie: (cookie)]] ;; un-un-redirect monkey-patch poke first ora 16 pick first ora 14 ....

Thanks for the help Sunanda. Posting to users for searches Here's what I did to get it working. parameters: rejoin ["product=" prod "&host=" host "&ip=" ip &categorycat "&subject=" subj "&site=" site "&customer=" cust "&contact=" contact &body data "&"] result: read/custom target reduce ['post parameters] print result When I had the ticketing sys guy insert some code so I could see what it was receiving; I got that it was only seeing "product=<br" Then I was able to figure it out.
