    Posted 02-16-2016 03:01 AM

    Hello,

     

    I have a request parameter objectId in the form /v1/getProduct/{objectId}. I want to use this objectId in the JSON response to display appropriate message like:

    {

    "status": 404

    "error": "Not Found"

    "message":"{objectId} is not found"

    }

    How do I store objectId in a variable and use that in response? I'm using DevTest 9.0

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Sharath,

     

    If your Virtual Service is created correctly, your request should already have an argument created for this parameter (by default it is named URLPARAM0. )

    Each argument value is automatically saved by Devtest into a property by the name request_<arg_name> , in this case it will be called request_URLPARAM0

     

    You can change your response to contain the following

    {

    "status": 404

    "error": "Not Found"

    "message":"{{request_URLPARAM0}} is not found"

    }

     

    Hope that helps

    Regards

    Tanveer
