How to use and share a cookie from authentification API REST call?
First of all, I am using Mendix 8.6.0 (build 715). [the choice was not available to me in the drop down menu] I want to design a Proof of Concept (PoC) showing that Mendix can connect to a Bonita database through REST API calls. I just want to connect to the Bonita service, get some data (for instance, a object of “Employe” type) and then disconnect from the service. My main microflow looks like this: When I connect to my service via Postman, I get a token cookie for the session (called X-Bonita-API-Token for instance), which I have to copy and paste for all the subsequent REST API calls: How can I use it in Mendix as a parameter for my second API call? So far, I guess I have to specify it as a Custom HTTP Header, but I just cannot find what is the correct expression to put in the “Value” field. I am actually wondering where this token is stored in my Mendix application. Did I have to specify an import mapping as a response of the first authentification API call? Edit: The cookie I am looking for is located in the response header in Postman: But when I have a look at the REST calls log (at “trace” level), I can only see one “Set-Cookie” header, and not the one I am looking for: Is this part of my problem, also?
As Reinout said you can retrieve the list of HTTP headers by association of the $latestHttpResponse/HttpHeaders:
After this you can loop over them or do a find(list operation) to retrieve the JSESSIONID & Bonita token:
Hope this helps.
The httpresponse will have a header list connected. YOu can retrieve the list and loop over the list to find the right header. Then you have the vlue you can send with your next request
