I'm new to this so I'm trying to understand.
If I want to return rows, normally I would use a GET. But since one of my
input parameters is a structure I'm forced to either use a POST or a PUT.
So I'm sort of forced out of the convention that GET is to read records,
POST is to create records and PUT is to update records.
So it's ok to do a POST only to read records?

Is there anyone else using IWS from an RPG perspective that has found or
could share some useful information?

the suffix _LENGTH must be capital because that is what IWS currently
looks for. It should not matter because it is not part of payload.

If you have a structure that is an input parameters, then the HTTP method
is POST or PUT.

Other than what we have for doc on web site, and articles, that is
all the doc there is. We are in process of updating the doc.

@Nadir, your assumption is correct, pFilterDs is indeed input. So you
saying that I can have a data structure as input?

Why must the "_lenght" be in upper case. I've never seen nor understand
this requirement.

Which parameters are input and which output?

And "_length" suffix should be "_LENGTH"

Assuming pFilterDs is input, you may want to define a length
for it as well so that you know how many entries are being passed

I want to have a filter(s) for my api.
An individual filter is defined as

dcl-ds filterTmp template qualified;
type char(20);
value char(20);

But there may be multiple occurrences of filter. For example,

'Warehouse': '95,96,97'
'DateRange': 'LastWeek'

I was hoping to do something like
dcl-pi *n;
pFilterDs likeds(filterTmp) dim(10) const;
transactionDs_length int(10);
transactionsDs likeds(transactionsTmp) dim(1000);
httpStatus like(httpStatusTmp);
httpHeaders like(httpHeadersTmp) dim(10);

But when I try this on Step 5 of 9 on the Deploy New Service Wizard
*Error:* ZUI_54411: The HTTP method must be PUT or POST when there
is an
input parameter that is not being injected with a value.

How should I be doing this?
