Yes - effectively a procedure in RESTSERV2 with the query string representing the parms.

I guess I could try the rewrite and do it that way - but surely the original should be workable.

So in this case, what does quantityquery represent?

Is it supposed to be a procedure in RESTSRV2?

Or are you trying to rewrite the url to:

partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2?function=quantityquery&partnum=0000011&quantity=5&partnum=0000011&quantity=5

If that's the case then you could try a rewrite rule just prior to your scriptaliasmatch:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/CGI/restsrv2/(.+)$ /CGI/restsrv2?function=$1 [QSA,PT]
ScriptAliasMatch ^/CGI/(.*) /QSYS.LIB/PARTNER400.LIB/$1.PGM


The QSA appends any current query string to the end of url, and PT the new url to be passed back through URL mapping.

I was as sure as I can be Chris. But I am beginning to doubt my sanity.

There are only two alias entries in that config file - one for regular CGI and one for REST web services. I know I had both working. But ...

I am no longer chasing what obviously is not supposed to work and need now to try and find a solution that will work.

I need to route to a program based on the first part of the URL and use the main jury string for the parameters for the specific function so ...

partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2/quantityquery?partnum=0000011&quantity=5&partnum=0000011&quantity=5

Should route to a program identified by "restsrv2" to invoke the "quantityquery" (as opposed to price query, quantity reserve, etc. functions) using the provided parts and quantities.

The Apache server interprets that URL as
/QSYS.LIB/PARTNER400.LIB/RESTSRV1/PART1.PGM

Which is probably why you are having the issue.

Are you saying this actually worked on V7R1?

Subject: [WEB400] Changes/Bugs in Apache?

I have this directive in my Apache config (actually in the vhosts but
...)

ScriptAliasMatch ^/CGI/(.*) /QSYS.LIB/PARTNER400.LIB/$1.PGM

I have not changed it (honestly) and I am sure that it has been working for years. This might be the first time I have used it since moving to V7R3.

When I try to use it with a REST web service (i.e. additional data in the URL) I am getting very strange results.

This URL http://partner400.com/cgi/prodrpt2oa <http://partner400.com/cgi/prodrpt2oa> works just fine and runs the script correctly.

This one http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv1/part1
<http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv1/part1> gives

Not Found
The script request is not valid. The script is not executable.

The log indicates that no PGM object was identified. So just for
chuckles I added .pgm to the base URL i.e:
http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv1.pgm/part1
<http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv1.pgm/part1>

That works - kind of ... the correct routing takes place and the script is called BUT the ".pgm" text then gets _added_ to the end of the URL. i.e. "part1" is actually passed to the script as "part1.pgm". If I add a / following "part1" then ".pgm" is seen as the next element in the path.

I've searched for PTFs on the topic but am seeing nothing.

Anyone got any ideas? This is an Apache feature that we use a lot and the .pgm workaround will not work for some scripts. For example this URL http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2.pgm/quantityquery/?partnum=0000011&quantity=5 <http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2.pgm/quantityquery/?partnum=0000011&quantity=5> tags the ".pgm" onto the end of quantityquery <http://partner400.com/cgi/restsrv2.pgm/quantityquery/?partnum=0000011&quantity=5> even when the trailing / is present as shown.
