    Posted 01-12-2017 08:52 AM

    Hello All,


    I have a query about Vordel SDK agent and how do we configure custom headers. 


    Example: I have to send few user attributes(LDAP Attributes like firstname,lastname) to API gateway. As of now there are few default attributes passed in the format of ATTR_***. I am trying configure to send the custom header in the same format. 


    I think I missed something or I am in a different direction. I have tried to set as a normal WebAgent http header but it send as "unknown" format like below 


    "unknown  FirstName: testuser"


    What we need to configure is 



    is there a way?

    The configuration should be same as for the normal agent.

    Can you share the screenshot of the Response configuration?

    Ujwol... I have attached the below screens. It look the above responses are part of SMSESSION where the API team captures..


    Could you share your thoughts? Is there any specific way to configure the headers for SDK agents?

    Hi Sarvanan,


    This is working for me.

    Here is what I have.


    1. Create Response as below.



    2. Tied the response to OnAccessAccept rule.

    3. Tested the response with custom Agent API, I can see that I am receiving an attribute with ID 224 (which is attribute reserved for custom agents) with the name "ATTR_FirstName" as configured in my response.



    Is this how you have configured as well ?

    Ujwol.. Thanks for your help... I have the similar configuration which sends the header name and the associated value. But the problem is, it is  in "Unknown" category like "unknown  FirstName: testuser"... I have asked for the screenshot from the API team who are consuming the Agent services. Will update you with the details.
