    Is there any way to make request data arguments optional?

    I mean I am trying to virtualize a webservice which can take dynamic arguements, and depending on how many arguments you pass, data will be returned for those many arguments.

    The service accepts upto 25 arguments, and I want to avoid creating 25 different transactions.

    Hi Mahesh,

     

    I am wondering if the Request Data Manager DPH would help you in this case.

    When creating the VSI add the Request Data Manager DPH in the request side and add actions to keep the arguments that are mandatory in your request and leave the optional arguments.

    The created VSI will show the arguments you selected to 'keep' and your request should match even if it contains the optional arguments.

    Hope it helps.
