As mentioned in your first thread...

It's passed by IWS as an environment variable..

The Request Information tab of the properties panel (shown in Figure 60 on
page 99) allows you to
display the transport and request information that is to be passed to the
web service implementation
code. You can update, remove, and modify the information that is to be
passed to the program object. The
information is passed to the program object in environment variables.

Page 98 of the IWS Server Admin & Programming guide

Simply use the Get Environment Variable (QtmhGetEnv) API to retrieve it..

Hi All,

I'm creating a REST webservice/api and using IWS. I'm then using Postman
to test the webservice. All the endpoints call procedures in a service

I have an endpoint /web/server/claims which will call the RPG procedure
GetAllClaims which returns all claims. I have tested this with Postman
and it works correctly.

My next step is to add a filter. So I call the same endpoint but this time
I pass a parameter of whid. So the endpoint now becomes
/web/server/claims/?whid=93 which will call the RPG procedure GetAllClaims
but this time I need to extract the parameter passed in the QUERY_STRING to
return only claims for warehouse 93.

Can someone point me to either documentation or an example of how to
specify and extract from the QUERY_STRING. I've done a lot of searching on
Google but I must not be searching on the correct terms because I can't
find anything on QUERY_STRING other than that you may specify it..
