cfhttp + redirect not working

Hi,

  I am using cfhttp with the "redirect=yes" attribute.  The Responheader DOES return a location AND a 302 statuscode.  However, it is not redirecting.  I am using CFMX 6.0 on Windows.  

  All I am trying to do is submit some info to a site (which is working), and then it normally redirects you to another page using the values from the cookies that were set.  So if there is any way to get the redirect working OR if I can use cfhttp off of the first cfhttp, than that would work as well.

Thanks
Ben

Just tried it on my CFMX 6.1 Linux box and the redirect works, however the page that it redirects to does not show proper page.  I wonder how I keep the same JSESSIONID or does the redirect keep this info when it goes to the next page?

coldfusions redirect attribute executes a request to the target of the redirection after the first request and handles the response of the second request like it was the result of the first request.

There are two ways you can possibly use the data you're looking for.

A: The cfhttp.fileContent variable may have the data you're looking for.

B: get rid of the 'redirect' attribute, and do a <cflocation url="#cfhttp.resonseHeader.location#">

Hope this Helps.

Thank for the response umbrae.  I am aware of the cfhttp.responseHeader.location variable.  I am not trying to redirect it on the client side, but on the server side.  The redirected page will give me a TAB-Delimeted file that I need to be able to read and then automatically put the file into a db.  I know how to do the last part, but I need to be able to get to the redirected page to get the tabbed file first.  So I am looking for NO client intervention.

Thanks

I see, I believe I misunderstood your question to begin with. You might be able to execute another cfhttp with some 'cfhttpparam's in order to shove the cookies to the new request.

It might look something like this:

<CFHTTP url="#cfhttp.responseHeader.location#">
<CFHTTPPARAM type="Cookie" name="Cookie1" value="Cookie1Data">
<CFHTTPPARAM type="Cookie" name="Cookie2" value="Cookie2Data">
</CFHTTP>

Again, hope this helps, and hope I understood what you were looking for more clearly.

As an addendum, you'd probably loop through the cookies array from your first cfhttp to pass the cookies most effectively with cfhttpparam.

Yeah, it seems like you are on the same page now :).  Anyways, I have tried passing the cookies manually.  However, there seems to be problems within problems here, because I tried to access the cookies by doing this:

CFHTTP.responseHeader.Set-Cookie

and

CFHTTP.responseHeader[Set-Cookie]

And I get an error that it can't find the "CFHTTP.responseHeader.Set" variable.  I assume this is the only way to loop through the cookies.  Plus, if I was able to get that "Set-Cookies", I am unsure as to how I would get the cookies and their values.  Is there a way to do this without parsing each line as a string?  Simple way to pull the cookie info out of the header?

Thanks

Try CFHTTP.responseHeader['Set-Cookie'], with the quotes. Also, as far as getting just the cookie data, I think a ReReplace(CFHTTP.responseHeader['Set-Cookie'][ArrayIndex],"([^;]*;.*)","\1;") would probably get the relevant data out of the string nicely.

Whoops. Bug!

REReplace(CFHTTP.responseHeader['Set-Cookie'][ArrayIndex],"([^;]*;).*","\1;")

is correct. Sorry bout that.

Whoo hoo!!!! it works.... my biggest downfall is good old regexp.  I have to get familiar with it.

Thanks umbrae!

Here is my loop for the second cfhttp to grab the cookies, just in case anyone else comes along the same problem:
============================================
      <cfloop from="1" to="16" index="num">
            <cfset cookstring = REReplace(CFHTTP.responseHeader['Set-Cookie'][num],"([^;]*).*","\1")>
            <cfhttpparam type="cookie" name="#ListGetAt(cookstring,1,'=')#" value="#ListGetAt(cookstring,2,'=')#">
      </cfloop>
============================================
I used 16 because I wasn't sure how to do a count on CFHTTP.responseHeader['Set-Cookie'].  I got an error on ArrayLen, so I just counted the number of cookies from the first cfhttp.

Thanks again, here are your points.
