Additional HTTP REST commands requested
So I have been playing around with a lot of JSON as of late and noticed we have a System command for HTTP GET action like so:


So that's very cool for some of the stuff I want to do however I was thinking that having the ability to also do HTTP PUT & POST (Possibly PATCH and DELETE) methods as well.  Not sure what this would take to be added but thinking this could be very helpful for anyone trying to interact with CQC unsupported devices that may use a REST API.

Currently I am just using cURL from cygwin to handle these actions but this requires me to have cygwin installed on all my IV's and CQC boxes.  Not a huge issue but still having this functionality as a direct action from cqc would be more robust.

Generally for that sort of stuff you need to do it in CML. You can write a CML macro and invoke it from an action, passing in the info you want. It could get sort of messy getting the parameters formatted out correctly for POST operations. That stuff is way easier to do in CML, where there are lots of helper methods to get all the data correctly set up.

Fair enough Dean, let me try and dig into the macro option for that and I'll see how it goes!


You can find various examples I've posted around here if you search for HTTP and CML probably.
