    Using HTTP Server RunTime Log option as Interface

    Dear Users,

    On request we expanded the built in HTTP server to except some extra parameters of the log URL (i.e. http://127.0.0.1:8080/log )

    • Before we go further, please check if the HTTP Server is Enabled (Menu item: Server\HTTP Server)

    • Also the RunTime Log option must be enabled to use these extra parameters

    What parameters were already available:

    • ruleid
      • Show the RunTime Log of RuleID 4
        • http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?ruleid=4
    • exe
      • Execute RuleID4
        • http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?ruleid=4&exe=4

    Since v2019.1.20.0 we’ve added the following extra parameters:

    • status
      • Get the Status of RuleID 4 as HTML Status Code
        • http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?status=4
      • We are using unassigned Status codes as Rule Status (RFC7231: 227-299 Unassigned)
        • 250 = Hold Mode
        • 251 = Move Enabled
        • 252 = Copy Enabled
        • 253 = Delete Enabled
        • 254 = Move enabled, Check RunTime Log
        • 255 = Copy enabled, Check RunTime Log
        • 256 = Delete enabled, Check RunTime Log
        • 257 = Move Disabled
        • 258 = Copy Disabled
        • 259 = Delete Disabled
        • 261 = Move Running
        • 262 = Copy Running
        • 263 = Delete Running
        • 264 = Move Terminating
        • 265 = Copy Terminating
        • 266 = Delete Terminating
        • 270 = Scanning Disabled
    • report
      • Get the Report of RuleID 4
        • http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?report=4

    Quite some customers use a command line tool called curl to execute a rule from an external application. This command line tool (curl) uses the built in HTTP server options/parameters we explained before.

    Some examples:

    • Execute RuleID4 using curl
      • curl http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?ruleid=4&exe=4
    • Get Status Code of RuleID as HTML Status Code using curl
      • curl -sL -w “%{http_code}” -I “http://127.0.0.1:8080/log?status=4” -o /dev/null
    • Get Report of RuleID 4 in your browser

    Please let us know if you have any questions about these new parameters. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
