Hi Rob, we are in process of updating doc so hopefully that will give
some relief. But if you get stuck, please search the mailing list and if
no answer found post your question. I try to respond when I see posts.

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
path.

Thanks to everyone for the help and guidance.

Rob

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..
