HTTP adapter request and response for a POST action

The POST operation sends data to a specified URL. The adapter request with a POST action uses the following formats:

  • Single element
  • Parent and child
  • Entry, key-value

When you use a context item as an input for an adapter request, you must enclose the adapter request in the<request-data> elements. However, when you create a static request, <request-data> is not required and the adapter request starts with the <httpadapterrequest> element. 

You can also upload multiple files and data by using the multipart/form-data specified in the <Content-Type> element in the the HTTP request header.

The following table describes the elements of an HTTP adapter request with a POST action.

Use the adapter request XML when you create a custom process by using the Call Adapter activity in TrueSight Orchestration Development Studio.

Elements of an HTTP adapter request with a POST action

Element

Description

Required

<adapter-name>

Specifies the name of the adapter to be used for this request

Default value: HTTPAdapter

No
<action>Specifies the URL of the content to be sentYes

<use-ssl-certificate>

Specifies whether to establish a secure connection 

Set the value of this element to true when <action> uses HTTPS. 

Set the value of this element to false or leave it blank when<action> uses HTTP. 

Valid values: true, false (default)

No

<install-certificate>

Specifies whether to install certificates 

Set the value of this element to true if you prefer to have security certificates installed automatically (a common practice). 

Set the value of this element to false if you prefer to manually export the security certificate from the specified target server and manually import it into the TrueSight Orchestration's local peer's cacerts file (a rare practice). 

Valid values: true, false (default)

No

<allow-unsigned-certificate>

Specifies whether to allow unsigned certificates from trusted zones 

Set the value of this element to true, if you are using self-signed SSL certificates (a common practice). 

On ecommerce sites or military installations, if you need to use signed certificates such as Verisign or Thawte, set the value of this element to false (a rare practice). 

Valid values: true, false (default)

No

<passphrase>

Specifies the Java Standard Trust Key Store passphrase

Warning

  • The value of the <passphrase> element is the passphrase for the cacerts certificate stored on the TrueSight Orchestration local peer (CDP or AP) and not the specified target host.
  • Changing the passphrase can be tricky and might destroy the cacerts security file integrity.

Verify the cacerts passphrase using the following command in UNIX or Linux: 

$ /opt/bmc/ao/cdp/jvm/bin/keytool -list -keystore 
/opt/bmc/ao/cdp/jvm/lib/security/cacerts 

Default value: changeit

No

<data-format>

Indicates the data type for the adapter response 

The JSON string in the response is parsed to XML only if <Content-Type> is set to application/json and <data-format> is set to XML. 

Valid values: XML, HTML (default)

No

<user name>

Specifies the user name to be used for basic authentication

No

<password>

Specifies the password corresponding to the user name provided for basic authentication

No

<http-connection-properties>

Specifies an XML document that includes HTTP connection properties, which contain the <user-name> and <password> elements for basic or NTLM authentication 

The XML document also includes information such as <content-type> in the HTTP request header before executing the HTTP request. 

Example
<http-connection-properties>
   <Content-Type>text/html</Content-Type>
   <Accept>Yes</Accept>
   <Blob></Blob> 
</http-connection-properties>


Example for multiple file upload
<http-connection-properties>
   <Content-Type>multipart/form-data</Content-Type>
</http-connection-properties>

Note: The user name and password properties are not set in the request header and are case sensitive.

Conditional; required if you want to send multiple files in the request. Specify <Content-Type> as multipart/form-data in the HTTP request header.

<user-name>

Specifies the user name required for basic or NTLM authentication specified in <http-connection-properties>

No

<password>

Specifies the password corresponding to the user name specified in <http-connection-properties>

No

<data>

Contains the data to be posted 

Data can be used in three ways:

  • Simple text form
  • Parent and child format
  • Key and entry format

Note: When you specify the <Content-Type> as multipart/form-data in the HTTP request header, you must specify at least one <entry> for the request.

NEW IN 20.19.01 For a multipart/form-data request, you can specify the content type as application/json in the request body.

For a sample adapter request, see Sample adapter request for a multipart/form-data request when the content-type is application/json.

Yes

<character-set>

Specifies the supporting CharSet 

Also called character set, it includes identifiers describing a series of universal characters. 

Note: If you do not specify the supporting character set, the adapter response is parsed based on the character set in the HTTP response header.

No

<signature-properties>

Contains the elements that specify information about the public key (X.509 certificate) and the private key that are used for the digital signature 

Note: If you specify <signature-properties> in the adapter configuration and an adapter request, the values in the request override the values in the configuration. 
The <signature-properties> element can contain the modeattribute that specifies the format in which the public (X.509 certificate) and private keys are provided for signing the HTTP request. 

You can provide the keys using one of the following formats:

  • Java Keystore (JKS)
  • Privacy Enhanced Mail (PEM)
  • Definite Encoding Rules (DER) files
  • Base64-encoded PEM 

    Valid values:
  • <signature-properties mode="keystore"> (default)
  • <signature-properties mode="key-files">
  • <signature-properties mode="key-data">

No

<file-path>

Specifies the file name and local path of the file to be sent to the URL 

Examples: 
For Windows:

C:\\adapters\\testfile.txt


For UNIX or Solaris: //home//user//testfile.txt

No

<file-content-type>

Specifies the content type of the file to be uploaded 

Valid values:

For text: text\plain

For files: application/octet-stream (Required for using multipart/form-data for sending multiple files over the adapter request)

Conditional; used if the adapter request contains a <file-path> element

<ntlm-authentication>

Indicates whether to use NTLM authentication for the target server for the specified user credentials 

The adapter supports both NTLMv1 and NTLMv2 authentication. 

Valid values: true, false (default) 

If the value of the parameter is true, the adapter uses NTLMv1 or NTLMv2 authentication (based on the server configuration) to authenticate the user. Else, the adapter uses basic authentication.

No

<private-key-file>

Specifies the file containing the private key that is used to sign the HTTP request 

The adapter supports the following formats:

  • Base64-encoded PEM
  • DER

Conditional; required when <signature-properties mode="key-files">

<certificate-file>

Specifies the file containing the public key (X509 Certificate) 

The adapter supports the following formats:

  • Base64-encoded PEM
  • DER

Conditional; required when <signature-properties mode="key-files">

<private-key-data>

Contains an XML file specifying the private key in an Base64-encoded PEM format 

For example:

Conditional; required when <signature-properties mode="keystore">

<enable-json-conversion>

Specifies whether the adapter should treat the input data in the request and the data received in the adapter response as a JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) string 

If <enable-json-conversion> is set to true, the input data in the request (XML format) is converted to a JSON string after parsing.  

Valid values: true, false (default) 

Notes:

  • If you specify <enable-json-conversion> in the adapter configuration and the adapter request, the value in the adapter request overrides the value in the configuration.
  • The response maintains the order in which the fields are specified in the request.

No

<enable-redirects>

If true, the line break markups are ignored and the response is returned as a single line. If false, the line break markers (if specified in the adapter response) are retained.

Valid values: true (default), false

No

Recommendation

The HTTP adapter supports both <httpAdapterRequest> and <http-adapter-request> tags for an adapter request; however, only the <httpAdapterResponse> tag is supported for an adapter response. 

BMC recommends that you use the <httpAdapterRequest> root tag for the adapter request.

The HTTP adapter generates a response to the HTTP request (URL) defined in the adapter request. The response format depends on <Content-Type> of the HTTP server response.
