http response from restful webservice via HTTP job

  • 1.  http response from restful webservice via HTTP job

    Posted 07-20-2018 01:12 PM

    When using the HTTP job to send a post request to a RESTful web service, is it possible to configure acceptable return codes, similar to how we define them using EXITCODE for Windows/Linux jobs? 

     

    If the agent receives 200 as an HTTP response, it shows as failed in ESP. Does the web service need to be modified to return 0 on success (instead of something in the 200-299 range), or is this a configuration problem on the ESP side?

     

     

    Thank you!

    Hi, 

    There is no option in ESP to code that a 200 is acceptable for a HTTP_JOB type. It will need to be coded so it ends with a zero. The only valid parameters are shown below. 

     

    Optional Statements

    You can specify the following optional statements for an HTTP job:

    This is what I assumed, but was wondering if there were other solutions on the agent/plugin side that might be available. Thank you for your reply!

    Hi,

    When the agent gets 200 from the application (HTTP), it will automatically send completion code of 0 to the manager.

     

    TCP/IP Controller Plugin.Transmitter pool thread <Regular:1>.CybTargetHandlerChannel.call[:687] - Attempting to send:    20180723 0XXXXXXX+0400 DE_R12 AGENT HTTP_WS/ON_HOLD_TEST.1/MAIN STATE COMPLETE SetEnd Status("Code:200 Status: OK") Cmpc(0) Plugin(appservices) User(AGENT) Host(de_linux)

     

    The manager should receive exit code 0, if you are not getting something like above (check transmitter.log), then Application plugin may not have been configured/installed properly.

     

    Thank you,
