Consume restful web service into console app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Guys,

    I use rest sharp to call web services. 

     var client = new RestClient("https://api.portasigma.com/v1/docs/");
                    client.Timeout = 120000; //2 min
                    client.ReadWriteTimeout = 120000;
                    var request = new RestRequest(Method.POST);
                    //header setting
                    request.AddHeader("authorization", "Basic *******");
                    request.AddHeader("accept", "application/json");
                    request.AddHeader("cache-control", "no-cache");
                    //final data
                    request.AddParameter("description", "Simple Invoice Format");
                    request.AddParameter("comments", "Sample Invoice Documents For Testing");
                    request.AddFile("file", filepath);
                    //execute request               
                    IRestResponse response = new RestResponse();
                    response = client.Execute(request);
                    if (response.IsSuccessful)
                        JObject jObj = JObject.Parse(response.Content);
                        docGuid = jObj["id"].ToString();
                        docGuid = string.Empty;

    In Above Code I got error when execute this line of code  

    response = client.Execute(request);

    The error is "The Operation has Time out"

    "StatusCode: 0, Content-Type: , Content-Length: 0)"

  • Perhaps https://api.portasigma.com/v1/docs/ timeout because you have no username and password setup for the request.

  • Thanks for your reply

    This api uses basic authentication so I create base64 header based on username and password

    I uses  request.AddHeader("authorization", "Basic *******"); this code for authentication

    actually data post successfully https://api.portasigma.com/v1/docs/ on this platform

    but prblm in getting response (this line of code)

    " IRestResponse response = new RestResponse();
      response = client.Execute(request);"

    I do not get response in "response" object error occur here I don't know why response not getting.

    Thanks !!!

  • RestSharp is a third party library. We only support MS products in the forums. I recommend you get help with their support.
