  • 1.  Remove Progress Output From XOG Client

    Posted 04-22-2017 10:32 PM

    Hello,

     

    I am running the XOG client from a Groovy script that runs the following command line argument:

     

    /tmp/xogclient/bin/xog -propertyfile /tmp/xogclient/bin/test.properties -input /tmp/xogclient/xml/prj_projects_read.xml

     

    I want to be able to parse the XML output, but the problem is the XOG client prints out progress as it's printing the output, such as " *********** 52.0% Completed [ 28 of 54 ] ***********"  Sometimes this progress output happens in the middle of an XML tag, like

    <scenariodependenci ***********="" 80.0%="" completed="" [="" 43="" of="" 54="" ]="" es=""></scenariodependenci>.

     

    This throws off the XML parser.  Is there a way to turn off progress output when running the XOG client via command line?

    Instead of shelling out to run the XOG client, you could just call the OBJECT web service passing it your /tmp/xogclient/xml/prj_projects_read.xml request payload.

     

    Not done any Groovy scripts but a quick search found this: Groovy Goodness: Use GroovyWS to Access SOAP Web Services - Messages from mrhaki 

     

    The other option if you need to shell out is to wrap you prj_projects_read.xml request payload into a GEL script using SOAP to get your response payload.  Using a GEL wrapper would eliminate the printing the output.

     

    V/r,

    Thanks Gene.  I am looking into running the XOG client through a SOAP request using the Groovy WSLite library (GitHub - jwagenleitner/groovy-wslite: Lightweight SOAP and REST webservice clients for Groovy).

     

    Currently, I am trying to perform a Login operation using the following script:

     

    @Grab('com.github.groovy-wslite:groovy-wslite:1.1.2')
    import wslite.soap.*


    def loginRequest = """
    <?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
    <SOAP-ENV:Envelope xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
    <SOAP-ENV:Header/>
    <SOAP-ENV:Body>
    <Login xmlns="http://www.niku.com/xog">
    <Username>USERNAME</Username>
    <Password>PASSWORD</Password>
    </Login>
    </SOAP-ENV:Body>
    </SOAP-ENV:Envelope>
    """

    def client = new SOAPClient("https://SERVER_NAME/niku/wsdl/Object")
    def response = client.send(loginRequest)

     

    I am getting a 405 Method Not Allowed response.  Is my endpoint URL correct?  Is my request header and body correct?

    EDIT: I've found that the wslite package automatically uses POST for all SOAP requests.  Do I need to change it to GET for the XOG SOAP API?

    So to xog out Ideas, I think it is:

     

    Endpoint https://cppm.ondemand.ca.com/niku/xog
    SOAPAction: http://www.niku.com/xog/ReadIdea
    Operation: ReadIdea

     

    SoapPayload:

     

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:obj="http://www.niku.com/xog/Object">
         <soapenv:Header>
              <obj:Auth>
                   <obj:Username>admin</obj:Username>
                   <obj:Password>password</obj:Password>
              </obj:Auth>
         </soapenv:Header>
         <soapenv:Body>
              <obj:ReadIdea>
                   <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_read.xsd">
                        <Header version="8.0" action="read" objectType="idea" externalSource="NIKU">

                             <args name="include_allocations" value="true"/>
                        </Header>
                        <Query>
                             <Filter name="objectID" criteria="EQUALS">admin</Filter>

                   </NikuDataBus>
              </obj:ReadIdea>
         </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>

     

    V/r,

    Thank you very much for the help.  I tried running the code above, changing some of the parameters (like username/password) and it gave me a 500 Internal Server error.  I also adjusted the code above to read a list of active projects, here is my code:

     

     

    @Grab('com.github.groovy-wslite:groovy-wslite:1.1.2')
    import wslite.soap.*

    def request = """
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:obj="http://www.niku.com/xog/Object">
         <soapenv:Header>
              <obj:Auth>
                   <obj:Username>username</obj:Username>
                   <obj:Password>password</obj:Password>
              </obj:Auth>
         </soapenv:Header>
         <soapenv:Body>
              <obj:ReadProject>
                   <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_read.xsd">

                            <args name="include_estimates" value="false"/>
                            <args name="include_actuals" value="false"/>
                            <args name="include_custom" value="false"/>

                        </Header>
                        <Query>
                             <Filter name="active" criteria="EQUALS">true</Filter>
                        </Query>
                   </NikuDataBus>
              </obj:ReadProject>
         </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>
    """
    def client = new SOAPClient("https://instance.ondemand.ca.com/niku/xog")
    def response = client.send(SOAPAction: "http://www.niku.com/xog/ReadProject", request)

     It gives me a 500 Internal Error as well.

    Finally, after some trial and error and debugging with SoapUI, I was able to get the script working.  This will read a list of companies and print out the result

     

     Thanks for the help, much appreciated!
