WebSphere Datapower Configurations for HTTP (GET and POST) Requests

Configuring Datapower services for the browser-based HTTP type requests

The purpose of this article is to describe the steps involved in configuring Datapower services for the browser-based HTTP type requests. The commonly used methods for such requests are either the POST or GET HTTP method.

Datapower Configurations

1. For the testing purpose create a loopback pass-through XML Firewall.

2. Create a new Multi-Protocol Gateway with the following values

Input

Values

Name

HTTPBrowserMPGW

Type

static-backend

Response Type

Non-XML

Request Type

Non-XML

Backend URL

<to the loopback XMLFirewall>

 

3. Create a HTTP Front side handler with the following values

Input

Values

Name

HTTPBrowserFSH

Local IP Address

<setup on one of the Ethernet Interface>

Port

81

Allow Methods and Version

GET (and all the other default values)

4. At the Multi-Protocol Gateway screen, click on the "Advance" tab menu and click on "Process Messages Whose Body Is Empty"

5. Click on Apply.

6. Create the httpReqType.xslt file and type the following. Upload the file on the Datapower

<xsl:stylesheet

xmlns:dp="http://www.datapower.com/extensions"

xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

extension-element-prefixes="dp"

exclude-result-prefixes="dp"

version="1.1">

<xsl:variable name="reqType" select="dp:variable('var://service/protocol-method')"/>

<xsl:template match="/">

<html><body>

<p>HTTP request submitted using

<b><xsl:copy-of select="$reqType" /> </b> method.

</p>

</body></html>

</xsl:template>

</xsl:stylesheet>

7. On HTTPBrowserMPGW, create a new Policy and named it "HTTPBrowserPolicy"

8. Create a new "Client to Server" rule and configure Match action icon for "* " for URL (match all)

9. Assign a "Convert Query Params to XML" action to the rule (convert-http action)

10. Click "Apply Policy"

11. Create another "Server to Client" rule and configure Match action icon for "* " for URL (match all)

12. Assign a "Transform" action to the rule and assign the "httpReqType.xslt" file.


13. Click "Apply Policy" and then "Close Window". Click on "Apply" at the Multi-Protocol Gateway screen

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
