Issue with polling request
I'm currently working with LR 12.6 - web(http/html) protocol - URL mode. Application is sharepoint based with webservices calls to populate the form details.
I have recorded the script, correlated and done automatic ASYNC call scan and applied the same.
Problem: when the Async call is started only the primary request is getting 200 response. All other polling requests are getting failed with response message : 400 Bad Request.
from my observation I noticed that polling requests are having ENCTYPE as "TEXT/HTML". However the initial primary request has ENCTYPE as "APPLICATION/JSON". Im not sure where to change this and make it reflect as "Application/json" in the polling request and How can I make this request PASS.
please let me know if you have came across this issue or am I missing anything?
Below the script snippets :
//Enter your implementation for RequestCB() here.
//Call web_util_set_request_url() here to modify request URL:
//Call web_util_set_request_body() here to modify request body:
//TODO - Use snapshot view to see examples of request bodies sent.
const char * aResponseHeadersStr,
const char * aResponseBodyStr,
//Enter your implementation for ResponseCB() here.
//TODO - To make the script wait for a specific response, use web_sync in the relevant Action file.
//See the Modifying Callbacks section in the VuGen user guide for more details.
//enter your implementation for ResponseCB() here
//Increment long-polling response counter
//Set parameter value to indicate that 10 long-polling responses were received.
if (counter>2 || (strcmp(aHttpStatusCode,"200") == 0))
Recent I was fighting with async calls as well. I noticed that some not all headers are preserved, but when you setup an auto-header it is preserved with each async call. So you should try to add to your call web_custom_request() the argument
or add it as an web_add_auto_header("Content-Type", "application/json") and stop it after your web_custom_request.
Checkout also the help on web_custom_request's Attributes and look to EncType, RecContentType and Resource.
