    REST call:  how to use x-www-form-urlencoded authentication

    The following command is working:


    curl -X POST --header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded' --header 'Accept: text/plain' -d 'apiKey=1234' 'https://www.telemetry.com/webservice/token'


    But the following code returns empty string.


    var request = "https://www.telemetry.com/webservice/token";

    var content = new Object();


    content.apiKey = '1234';

    var headers = new Object();

    headers.Accept = "text/plain";

    var params = {

    headers: headers /* JSON */,

    ignoreSSLErrors: true /* BOOLEAN */,

    url: request /* STRING */,

    content: content /* JSON */,

    timeout: 60 /* NUMBER */


    // result: JSON

    var result = Resources["ContentLoaderFunctions"].PostJSON(params);


    How to handle the REST call? how to use x-www-form-urlencoded authentication? How to pass the apiKey?

        Hey Mahboob,


        You can post a x-www-form-urlencoded request using the PostText service on the ContentLoaderFunction resource. Here is an example:


        var params = {

                headers: {

                    "Content-Type": "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"      


                url: "" /* Your auth url*/,

            content: "" /* Your auth content. This is usually a param list like param1=one&param2=two. I usually use Postman to create and test the request, then use it to generate a code snippet for http and this will be the last line. */




        var result = Resources["ContentLoaderFunctions"].PostText(params);


        If you're expecting JSON as a result, you can parse it normally using something like:


        result = JSON.parse(result);


        Hope this helps!
