No. Only parameters may be injected with data.

Hi Nadir, is there a plan to support mapping path/query parameters to
data
structures and its subfields?
Most of the APIs have multiple query/path parameters so we end up using
the
alternate approach getenv() to receive the entire query/path string and
parse it

Thanks,
Rajesh

Hi,

You have two options to getting access to query string variable. The
recommended way is to inject the query string parameter into a
parameter
automatically.

The alternative way is to pass the entire query string as an
environment
variable and within your code you would need to issue a getenv() call
and
then parse the query string variable.

Obviously, injecting an input parameter with value of query string
variable is easiest. And this method allows you to specify a default
value as well if not specified.

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
program..

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..
