REST response headers mapping

Posted by pedrorodriguez on 11-May-2017 06:21


 I am aware that I can map an individual parameter to a specific response header to output it in the response header.

 But I am also able to map an output parameter to the generic headers response section, should that be possible? If so which format should I use to output all headers? Would it overwrite standard response headers or add it to them?

Ideally I would like to use this option as it would give me a lot more flexibility to decide in the back end which headers I should output.

If you want this level of control over the response, I’d look into using the WEB transport rather than the REST transport. You need 11.6.0+ but it gives you pretty much everything and in ABL.

Peter, I'm intrigued by "pretty much everything", which implies there's something missing (or not possible). What would that be?

The “Authorization” header is not passed in as part of the request to PASOE/WEB. We are working on providing access to it as part of the Spring authentication process via a callback mechanism (I’ll confirm the when and let you know).
