Thanks Nadir, After watching Tim's video the first option became clear.
Thanks for mentioning the second option.
I just wish I hadn't spent so much time trying to find how to do this. I'm
not sure if I was searching for the wrong terms but now I am on the right

Thanks to everyone for the help and guidance.

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

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.

Sent by: "WEB400" <web400-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Hi All,

I'm creating a REST webservice/api and using IWS. I'm then using
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
I pass a parameter of whid. So the endpoint now becomes
/web/server/claims/?whid=93 which will call the RPG procedure
but this time I need to extract the parameter passed in the QUERY_STRING
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
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..
