Hi , thanks for the response.

I went through the docs again and I managed to get the Authentication token from the header of the first authentication call.

I managed to set the token on the actual REST call , It passes though now, I don't get a "User not authenticated" XML returned anymore.

I do get a HTTP status 505 now, I see a 505 is a HTTP version not supported.

Any ideas?

To create the handle I use: tHandle = axiscTransportCreate(uri:AXISC_PROTOCOL_HTTP11)

Regards

PS I do get a status Http status 200: Success message back from the authentication call

You didn't mention if your IBM i is making a request TO a service, or
acting as the server.

But, with your authentication it most likely is using some form of OAuth so
you probably need to pass the authentication information back in an HTTP
header (if you're making the request to a service). Normally it's
something like this:

Authorization: Bearer 0b79bab50daca910b000d4f1a2b675d604257e42

I am not familiar with how to add HTTP headers with the application you're
using since I always use GETURI for my HTTP requests. But I'm sure you can
find that or someone else can help as well. I would just make sure you
study the docs and most have sections on authentication/authorization that
are fairly specific.

Dealing with quite a few services over the past few years most use OAuth or
some "version" of that.

Hi, I need to initiate a REST service on a PC server, after a RPG job
completes.

There are a set of JSON requests available on the PC server.

I had a look on IBM developerworks that gives very good examples how to
initiate a REST service.

1)The first one is a Authentication call.

I managed to make the authentication call with the supplied login
credentials (I get a "SUCCESS" XML back)

Uri = <url with the user and password supplied>
Uri2= <url with the actual call ti initate the job on the PC>

tHandle_A = axiscTransportCreate(uri:AXISC_PROTOCOL_HTTP11);
if (tHandle_A = *NULL);
PRINT ('TransportCreate() failed');
return;
endif;


propBuf = 'GET' + X'00';
axiscTransportSetProperty(tHandle_A: AXISC_PROPERTY_HTTP_METHOD:
%addr(propBuf));
flushAndReceiveData();




2)I'm struggling to find a way to pass this Authentication handle/token
(tHandle_A) back to the next call that initiates the actual service.

In the next call, that will initiate the job on the PC server, I create
new Handle , with a new URL (Uri2) to pass the necessary info to be able to
make the call .

I tried to rather set the authentication properties on the second call by
utilizing:

rc =axiscTransportSetProperty(tHandle:AXISC_PROPERTY_HTTP_
BASICAUTH:%addr(propBuf1):%addr(propBuf2));

That doesn't work.

What I need is something like this: rc =axiscTransportSetProperty(
tHandle_B:AXISC_PROPERTY_HTTP_BASICAUTH:thandle_A);

Where I pass the original handle (tHandle_A) that I got when I
authenticated with the first call.

Or any other method to supply the authentication token with the next call.

Any advice would be appreciated.
