API Header with Host and Content-Length

Highlighted

Hi all,

 

I am currently struggeling with a workflow using the Download Tool. The calls work fine with Postman, but there are two required fields (Host and Content-Length), which I wasn't able to reproduce by now. Can somebody tell me how to solve this issue?

From the screenshot , it seems like this is something that might be calculated on the fly.

 

Could you share more details or a screenshot from Postman of the request body that is being sent when making the API call. 

 

We can then recreate the same calculations using a formula tool and feed it into the Download tool. 

 

Also , if you are facing issues with just using the Download tool directly , then you could use  a batch macro which can configure all the components required to make an API call. 

 

Happy to help.

I am trying to connect to a tableau server, which is hosted in the intranet of my company.

The body should allways (for this API call) look like this, but for other calls it might differ.

 

Is it possible to configure the host with a Batch Macro?

 

Best regards

Max
