Pull Execution History from the http API

Postby Paulhbartosik » Mon Oct 01, 2018 2:15 pm

I wanted to get a listing of the job status for the last day's activity. This is a very simple graph, but it was difficult for me to get it to work.

There were two challenges:
1. Getting the HTTP parameters correct. Remember that if you add parameters through the input mapping, you must delete them from the URL. Otherwise you get completely unhelpful error messages.

2. Reading the output in XML. You have to navigate the XML tree structure to pull the relevant data. The XML Extract can be sort of flakey.

See the attached graph. I have removed my password info.
