Azure Custom API with Parameters

As the title says.

Hi.  I'm trying to pass parameters to an Azure Mobile Servce Custom API.

Client I have..

Dim result = Await App.MobileService.InvokeApiAsync("apitest", System.Net.Http.HttpMethod.Post, New Dictionary(Of String, String) From {{"Param1", "Value1"}, {"CompleteAll", "true"}})
MessageBox.Show(result.ToString)

Open in new window



Server I have..

exports.post = function(request, response) 
{
   if (request.parameter.CompleteAll == "true")
    {
    response.send(statusCodes.OK, { message : 'True' });
    }
    else
    {
    response.send(statusCodes.OK, { message : 'False' });
    }
};

Open in new window


The call completes but always returns False as if the parameter is not being read.

Any ideas ?






But the parameter is never evaluated it seems ?

Are you it's a string : << == "true" >>
and not a boolean : << == true >>

exports.post = function(request, response) 
{
   if (request.parameter.CompleteAll)
    {
    response.send(statusCodes.OK, { message : 'True' });
    }
    else
    {
    response.send(statusCodes.OK, { message : 'False' });
    }
};

The parameter is Dictionary(Of String, String)

force it to check what you receive :
exports.post = function(request, response) 
{

    response.send(statusCodes.OK, { message : request.parameter.CompleteAll, typeOf:typeof request.parameter.CompleteAll });

};

Sorted.

Request.Parameter is for use with CRUD scripts.

Request.Query for Custom APIs.

Obvious (not)!
