The site is very rudimentary. No API. Another third party I interact

used.

I've done similar things with GETURI (or HTTPAPI). It takes multiple
calls, storing the cookie or session ID for the logon and passing that
along with each other call.

I would first ask if the site has any API interfaces you can use. It can
be cumbersome simulating a user on a site, especially with signon cookies,
etc.

Just wondering if anyone has attempted this on IBM i with Python.


I have a need to login to a website, make some menu/dropdown selections,
and click a submit button. All in batch.


I've perused Selenium, Beautiful Soup, etc. but it's a bit overwhelming.


Thanks.
