SendCustomRequest Method

Sends a custom request to the server.

procedure SendCustomRequest(HttpMethod: String; KeyName: String; VersionId: String; Action: String);


This method can be used to send arbitrary requests to the server.

Valid values for HttpMethod are:

  • GET (default if empty)
  • HEAD
  • POST
  • PUT

KeyName and VersionId are optional. The former must be specified if the latter is specified; both are ignored if KeyRing is empty. Action is also optional.

When this method is called, the component does the following:

  1. Builds a request URL, including query parameters, like{GoogleProjectId}/locations/{Location}[/keyRings/{KeyRing}[/cryptoKeys/{KeyName}[/cryptoKeyVersions/{VersionId}]]][{Action}] using:
    • The GoogleProjectId, Location, and (if non-empty) KeyRing properties.
    • The KeyName, VersionId, and Action parameters.
    • All query parameters from QueryParam*.
  2. Adds an Authorization header with the value specified by Authorization.
  3. Adds any request headers from OtherHeaders.
  4. Adds any request body supplied via the stream specified using SetInputStream, the specified InputFile, or InputData.
  5. Sends the request to the server.
  6. Stores the response headers in the ParsedHeader* properties; and the response body in the stream specified using SetOutputStream, the specified OutputFile, or OutputData.

If the response body is JSON data, the XPath, XText, and other X* configuration settings can then be used to navigate and extract information from it.
