    Solid Question. Is there a way to use this to handle downloading files and setting them to a specific location on user machine? Trying to create a updating system using php and my webhost. so far ive gotten it to compare users version with posted version on my server and if returns that update is available it will open url in browser and download the update. but that leaves it to the user having to unzip and put the file directly into the content/paks directory. is there a way to bypass having to open the url externally and just download it to the projects directory?

    Hi, great plugin... i see early on in this thread you added support for nested json - can you tell me/point me at how to access the nested data? For eg: get the ID below...
    Code:
    {
        "user": {
            "data": {
                "ID": "1"
                 }
          }
    }
    I want to get user.data.ID

    Thanks!

    Hey,
    First of all I want to thank you for the plugin! working great so far.

    I am trying to implement a PATCH request to a server, but can't seem to get it to work. it crashes with the errors provided in the pictures.
    it seems there is no support for PATCH method in the libcurl library..
    I would be happy to know if any of you have encountered the same issue, and how did you manage to get around it?

    Any help will be highly appreciated!

    SOLVED: I fixed my own problem I am editing post to reflect solution.

    My application of this plugin is retrieving information from Elasticsearch using its rest api. I have been able to send a simple get request and confirm that I can reach my server, but I cannot figure out how to use the blueprint nodes to construct my request. I am used to using the curl command when sending json to the api and so that is how I will show you what I am trying to accomplish. I am trying to do the equivalent of the following. curl -X GET "localhost:9200/twitter/_search" -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
    {
    "query" : {
    "term" : { "user" : "kimchy" }
    }
    }
    '

    I tried to understand how to send this using this blueprint plugin but have become very frustrated and thus I am asking for help. I think I need to somehow set the request body but I am not sure how to do this. If anyone is willing to help that would be greatly appreciated.

    What I was doing wrong was not setting the request object after making the request. I also learned that the request object needed to be a json object using the field body and then my above json as the value(using the construct json object combined with set string field), I am attaching a quick screenshot of this for anyyone in the future.

    Having a little bit of a problem parsing the data within the blueprints my API is returning this as a JSON object but i can't seem to figure out how to break the object up to use the data.

    API Response:
    Code:
     
     {"playerinfo":{"Friends":"none","Lifetime_Score":0,"Facebook_ID":"0","User_ID":141,"Stars":"0","UserName":" ","Google_ID":"0"},"scores":{"Level":1,"Chapter":1,"Score":200,"Player_ID":141}}
    Blueprint is attached. Thanks in advance this plugin has saved me a lot of time!

    I'm currently trying to use VaRest to login to a server via a third party api.

    I should be able to login by either processing a cURL or by passing headers and a body via a url.
    I've not be able to get VaRest to post correctly to the server.

    If I copy the cURL link from the api dashboard and into the Process URL node then the request fails and i get the same if i follow the logic in the attached screenshot. When i'm using the Set String Request Content, i'm only doing so because I couldn't find anything else relating to adding body content.

    I have experience working with PHP before inside of Unity but this is my first time using posting JSON so i'm sure there is something really simple that i'm missing.

    EDIT:
    So it seems to be working now using the Set String Field and Set Fields. How ever nesting a JSON field inside a field adds in square brackets and not curly brackets along with another formatting issue. Can anyone suggest how to get around this. I'll attach a screen shot.

    Hey @ufna
    I just wanted to ask if it is possible to use the Bing Speech API with your Plugin.
    It works like this: First you send a Authentication Key and audio file to the server and then you get a response in form of a JSON.
    Does this work with your plugin?

    I am having some trouble doing this in C++
    any help to do the BindEvent To OnRequestComplete Function To another Function call "TempFunction"


    this is what I have so far::

    FLatentActionInfo latentInfo;
    Request = UVaRestRequestJSON::ConstructRequestExt(this, ERequestVerb::GET, ERequestContentType::x_www_form_urlencoded_url);
    Request->ApplyURL(UrlGetIp, RequestObject, this, latentInfo);
    Request->OnRequestComplete;

    been trying for over 4 hours to figure out.

    This is working perfectly so far, except, I don't get any difference between the 'Encode JSON' node and the 'Encode JSON to Single String' node. Both are creating single-line JSON nodes, and as I am exporting these to external .json files this is a bit messy.

    Anyone else experiencing this on 4.20?

    I really can use some help here:

    on the web side I encode my Data and it returns some thing like this:
    {"status": "online","username": "shakoor","email": "shakoor@sh.com","banned": "no","kills": "0","wins": "0"}
    so i will use "Get Field" and it works fine but when I have some thing like this on the server:
    {"status": "online","username": "shakoor","email": "shakoor@sh.com","banned": "no","kills": "0","wins": "0"}{"status": "online","username": "shakoor2","email": "shakoor@sh.com2","banned": "no","kills": "0","wins": "0"}

    So I have more than 1 json object and let's say I want to show the second result
    I just don't know how proceed
    you see the same code works fine for 1 json object but when it is more than 1 it doesn't work
    so please please
    help me
    all I want to do is to have list of specific data on the server encoded as json and show them all
    that is it
    "GetResponseContent" will print everything I guess, but it does not work anymore (Deprecated)

    thank you again for your attention

    Respects
