Overview

The SetIntegrationRequest policy lets you create a request object for an integration that you want to run. In the policy, you must configure the details of the API trigger and the input parameters required to run the integration. When you run the SetIntegrationRequest policy, it creates a request object and saves it in a flow variable. The request object has all the information required to run the integration. At this stage, the integration is still not run. To run the integration, you must either call the IntegrationCallout policy or set an IntegrationEndpoint. Both the IntegrationCallout policy and IntegrationEndpoint require the request object to run the integration.

<SetIntegrationRequest>

Specifies the SetIntegrationRequest policy.

    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
</Parameters>

Example

The following example initializes the my_str_param parameter and the my_array_param parameter array:

<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="my_str_param" type="string" ref="flow_var_1">someText</Parameter>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="integer" ref="flow_var_2">
    <Value>1</Value>
    <Value ref="flow_var_3"/>
    <Value ref="flow_var_4">3</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
</Parameters>

Apigee treats empty <Parameter> and <ParameterArray> elements as null values. For example, declarations like <Parameter></Parameter> and <ParameterArray></ParameterArray> are treated as null values.

<Parameter>

Specifies an input parameter.

Default Value N/A
Required? Optional
Type String
Parent Element <Parameters>
Child Elements None

You can specify the parameter value in the following ways:

  • <Parameter name="my_param" type="string">val</Parameter>: Use val as the parameter value. If val is invalid, Apigee reports an exception.
  • <Parameter name="my_param" type="string" ref="refval"/>: Resolve the refval flow variable at runtime and use its value. Apigee reports an exception if the resolved refval value is invalid or if refval is unresolved.
  • <Parameter name="my_param" type="string" ref="refval">val</Parameter>: Resolve the refval flow variable at runtime and use its value. Apigee reports an exception if the resolved refval value is invalid. If refval does not resolve, Apgiee uses val as the parameter value.

The <Parameter> element uses the following syntax:

Syntax
<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="PARAMETER_NAME" type="PARAMETER_DATATYPE">PARAMETER_VALUE</Parameter>
  <Parameter name="PARAMETER_NAME" type="PARAMETER_DATATYPE" ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
  <Parameter name="PARAMETER_NAME" type="PARAMETER_DATATYPE" ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">PARAMETER_VALUE</Parameter>
</Parameters>
Example-1

The following example declares my_str_param parameter as a string and sets the value to someText.

<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="my_str_param" type="string">someText</Parameter>
</Parameters>
Example-2

The following example declares my_double_param parameter as a double and assigns the value of the flow_var flow variable to the parameter.

<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="my_double_param" type="double" ref="flow_var"/>
</Parameters>
Example-3

The following example sets value to the my_int_param_1 integer parameter.

<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="my_int_param_1" type="integer" ref="flow_var_1">96</Parameter>
</Parameters>

In this example, if the flow_var_1 flow variable resolves successfully, my_int_param_1 is set to the value of the flow variable. However, if flow_var_1 fails to resolve, my_int_param_1 is set to 96.

Example-4

The following example sets values for the my_json_param_1 and my_json_param_2 JSON parameters.

<Parameters>
  <Parameter name="my_json_param_1" type="json" ref="flow_var_1">{name:"Apple", color:"Red"}</Parameter>
  <Parameter name="my_json_param_2" type="json">{name:"Banana", color:"Yellow"}</Parameter>
</Parameters>

In this example, if the flow_var_1 flow variable resolves successfully, my_json_param_1 is set to the value of the flow_var_1 flow variable. However, if the flow_var_1 fails to resolve, my_json_param_1 is set to {name:"Apple", color:"Red"}. The my_json_param_2 parameter is set to {name:"Banana", color:"Yellow"} as there is no ref attribute specified.

The following table describes the attributes of <Parameter>:

Attribute Required? Type Description
name Required String Name of the parameter.
type Required String Data type of the parameter. The supported types are integer, string, boolean, double, and json.
ref Optional String Specifies the flow variable from which Apigee should read the parameter value. Apigee uses the following criteria to set the parameter value:
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime and is valid, Apigee uses the value of the flow variable.
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime but is invalid, Apgiee reports an exception.
  • If the flow variable doesn't resolve at runtime, Apigee uses the <Parameter> element value. If the element value is invalid, Apigee reports an error.

<ParameterArray>

Specifies an input parameter array.

Default Value N/A
Required? Optional
Type Complex type
Parent Element <Parameters>
Child Elements <Value>

The <Parameters> element can have multiple <ParameterArray> elements within it. For a parameter array you can set the value of the array elements either by specifying the actual value or by specifying a flow variable in the ref attribute. If you specify a flow variable, the array elements are set to the value of the flow variable. The examples in this section describe the various ways in which you can configure the <ParameterArray> element.

The <ParameterArray> element uses the following syntax:

Syntax
<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="ARRAY_NAME" type="ARRAY_DATATYPE" ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">
    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
    <Value>PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
  <ParameterArray name="ARRAY_NAME" type="ARRAY_DATATYPE" ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
  <ParameterArray name="ARRAY_NAME" type="ARRAY_DATATYPE">
    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
    <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
    <Value>PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
<Parameters/>
Example-1

The following example declares my_array_param as an integer array and sets the value of the array elements to 1, 2, and 3:

<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="integer">
    <Value>1</Value>
    <Value>2</Value>
    <Value>3</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
<Parameters/>
Example-2

The following example declares my_array_param as a double array where:

  • First element is set to the value of the flow_var_1 flow variable.
  • Second element is set to 3.0.
<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="double">
    <Value ref="flow_var_1"/>
    <Value>3.0</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
<Parameters/>
Example-3

The following example declares my_array_param as a boolean array and sets it to the value of the flow_var_1 flow variable.

<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="boolean" ref="flow_var_1">
    <Value>true</Value>
    <Value>false</Value>
    <Value>false</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
<Parameters/>

In this example, if flow_var_1 resolves successfully, my_array_param is set to the values of the flow_var_1 array. However, if flow_var_1 fails to resolve, the my_array_param array is set to the values of the Value elements.

Example-4

The following example declares my_array_param as a JSON array and sets it to the value of the flow_var_1 flow variable.

<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="json" ref="flow_var_1"/>
<Parameters/>

In this example, if flow_var_1 resolves successfully, my_array_param is set to the values of the flow_var_1 array. However, if flow_var_1 fails to resolve, Apigee reports an exception.

Example-5

The following example declares my_array_param as a string array and sets it to the values of the flow_var_1 flow variable.

<Parameters>
  <ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="string" ref="flow_var_1">
    <Value ref="flow_var_2"/>
    <Value>test_string</Value>
  </ParameterArray>
<Parameters/>

In this example, if flow_var_1 resolves successfully, my_array_param is set to the values of the flow_var_1 array. Only if flow_var_1 fails to resolve, my_array_param is set to the values specified in the <Value> elements.

The following table describes the attributes of <ParameterArray>:

Attribute Required? Type Description
name Required String Name of the parameter array.
type Required String Data type of the parameter array. The supported types are integer, string, boolean, and double.
ref Optional String Specifies the flow variable from which Apigee should read the array values. Apigee uses the following criteria to set the parameter value:
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime and is valid, Apigee uses the value of the flow variable.
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime but is invalid, Apgiee reports an exception.
  • If the flow variable doesn't resolve at runtime, Apigee uses the values specified in the <Value> elements.
<Value>

Specifies the value of an array element.

Default Value N/A
Required? Optional
Type String
Parent Element <ParameterArray>
Child Elements None

Each element of the array must be a separate <Value> element. You can specify the value in the following ways:

  • <Value>val</Value>: Use val as the element value. If val is invalid, Apigee reports an exception.
  • <Value ref="refval"/>: Resolve the refval flow variable at runtime and use its value. Apigee reports an exception if the resolved refval value is invalid or if refval is unresolved.
  • <Value ref="refval">val</Value>: Resolve the refval flow variable at runtime and use its value. Apigee reports an exception if the resolved refval value is invalid. If refval does not resolve, Apgiee uses val as the element value.

The <Value> element uses the following syntax:

Syntax
<ParameterArray name="ARRAY_NAME" type="ARRAY_DATATYPE" ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">
  <Value>PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
  <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME"/>
  <Value ref="FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME">PARAMETER_VALUE</Value>
</ParameterArray>
Example-1

The following example declares my_array_param as an integer parameter array with values 1, 2, and 3:

<ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="integer">
  <Value>1</Value>
  <Value>2</Value>
  <Value>3</Value>
</ParameterArray>
Example-2

The following example declares my_array_param as a string parameter array with values of the flow_var_1 and flow_var_2 flow variables:

<ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="string">
  <Value ref="flow_var_1"/>
  <Value ref="flow_var_2"/>
</ParameterArray>
Example-3

The following example declares my_array_param as a string parameter array:

<ParameterArray name="my_array_param" type="string">
   <Value ref="flow_var_1">string_1</Value>
   <Value ref="flow_var_2">string_2</Value>
</ParameterArray>

In this example, if the flow variable resolves successfully, the array element value is set to the value of the flow_var_1 flow variable. However, if flow_var_1 fails to resolve, the array element value is set to string_1.

The following table describes the attributes of <Value>:

Attribute Required? Type Description
ref Optional String Specifies the flow variable from which Apigee should read the parameter value. Apigee uses the following criteria to set the parameter value:
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime and is valid, Apigee uses the value of the flow variable.
  • If the flow variable resolves at runtime but is invalid, Apgiee reports an exception.
  • If the flow variable doesn't resolve at runtime, Apigee uses the <Value> element's value. If the element value is invalid, Apigee reports an error.

<Request>

Specifies the flow variable name for saving the request.

After the policy executes, it creates a new request message object, and saves the object in the FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME variable which you can query to read the request.

If you do not specify a flow variable name, the policy saves the request in the request message, overriding the existing request message if any.

Default Value request
Required? Optional
Type String
Parent Element <SetIntegrationRequest>
Child Elements None

The <Request> element uses the following syntax:

Syntax

<Request>FLOW_VARIABLE_NAME</Request>

Example

The following example saves the request object in the my_request_var flow variable:

<Request>my_request_var</Request>

Error codes

This section describes the fault codes, error messages, and the fault variables set by Apigee when this policy triggers an error. This information is essential if you are developing fault rules to handle faults. To learn more, see What you need to know about policy errors and Handling faults.

Runtime errors

These errors can occur when the policy executes.

Fault code HTTP status Cause
steps.setintegrationrequest.EmptyParameterArray 500

This error occurs when the <ParameterArray> element has the name and type attributes, but doesn't have the ref attribute or a <Value> element.

steps.setintegrationrequest.EmptyParameterArrayValue 500

This error occurs when the <Value> element is empty and the ref attribute is not set.

steps.setintegrationrequest.InvalidResolvedFlowVariable 500

This error occurs when the flow variable specified in the ref attribute of an element fails to resolve to a valid value.

  • For the ProjectId, IntegrationName, or the ApiTrigger elements, this error occurs if the flow variable resolves to a null, an empty string, or an invalid data type.

    A valid value for these elements is as follows:

    • ProjectId: See the naming requirements for Project ID in the Before you begin section.
    • IntegrationName: See the naming requirements for the IntegrationName element.
    • ApiTrigger: The name should start with api_trigger/.
  • For the ParameterArray element, this error occurs if the flow variable resolves to an empty string.
steps.setintegrationrequest.MismatchedTypeAndResolvedRef 500

This error occurs when the flow variable specified in the ref attribute of the <Parameter> element resolves, but the flow variable value's data type doesn't match the data type specified in the type attribute.

steps.setintegrationrequest.MismatchedTypeAndResolvedRefOfParameterArray 500

This error occurs when the flow variable specified in the ref attribute of the <ParameterArray> element resolves, but the flow variable value's data type doesn't match with the data type specified in the type attribute.

steps.setintegrationrequest.MismatchedTypeAndResolvedRefOfParameterArrayValue 500

This error occurs when the flow variable specified in the ref attribute of the <Value> element resolves, but the flow variable value's data type doesn't match with the data type specified in the type attribute of its parent element (<ParameterArray>).

steps.setintegrationrequest.RequestVariableNotMessageType 500 This error occurs when the flow variable specified by the Request element is not of message type.
steps.setintegrationrequest.RequestVariableNotRequestMessageType 500 This error occurs when the flow variable specified by the Request element is not of Request message type.
steps.setintegrationrequest.UnresolvedVariable 500

This error occurs when Apigee can't resolve the flow variables specified in the <Parameter>, <ParameterArray>, or the <Value> elements.

Fault variables

Whenever there are execution errors in a policy, Apigee generates error messages. You can view these error messages in the error response. Many a time, system generated error messages might not be relevant in the context of your product. You might want to customize the error messages based on the type of error to make the messages more meaningful.

To customize the error messages, you can use either fault rules or the RaiseFault policy. For information about differences between fault rules and the RaiseFault policy, see FaultRules vs. the RaiseFault policy. You must check for conditions using the Condition element in both the fault rules and the RaiseFault policy. Apigee provides fault variables unique to each policy and the values of the fault variables are set when a policy triggers runtime errors. By using these variables, you can check for specific error conditions and take appropriate actions. For more information about checking error conditions, see Building conditions.

The following table describes the fault variables specific to this policy.

Variables Where Example
fault.name The fault.name can match to any of the faults listed in the Runtime errors table. The fault name is the last part of the fault code. fault.name Matches "UnresolvedVariable"
SetIntegrationRequest.POLICY_NAME.failed POLICY_NAME is the user-specified name of the policy that threw the fault. SetIntegrationRequest.set-integration-request-1.failed = true
For more information about policy errors, see What you need to know about policy errors.
