Allow parameters to be passed to a request body in the Batch Controller
I would like the ability to pass response values from one request into the body of a dependent request using the batch controller to avoid making 2 calls to the PI Web API.
Currently, I can only use Parameters in subsequent URLs, but not bodies.
We have reviewed this idea, and it’s not something we plan to implement at this time. Even though we are declining this idea for now, it is still open to comments. We do want to hear your opinion. Thank you for the feedback, and please, keep sharing!
It is really strange to why it is declined. It is counterintuitive to be able to use Parameters in GET request but cant do the same thing inside a POST request. The idea of batch request seems a lot less useful since you can't make a dynamic POST request inside the batch controller using the result of some request made before.
And since im developing some customs symbols in PI Vision with the PI Web API, its getting more and more difficult to do what we need.
