Does anyone have an example or experience with REST/JSON post to an external webserver app (not on CCX server/cluster)?  I need to get two strings of data to a web server from my CCX application/script.

I have the MAKE REST Call setup with the url and params but it fails every time and I'm not sure how to debug it.

I'm pretty good with this, so I'll give it a shot.  What can you share with us about your setup/attempt?


Hey Anthony, thanks for the offer!  I'll share what I have so far -- basically I'm emailing the "message" now - we have a back end system that will take the email and parse it and then use the data for the alternate message delivery.

We want to post it to a new web app being developed with REST/JSON.  ... 


I think we may have an idea - http vs https.  our web app isn't allowing http right now.... CCX won't do https right?


So, first thing first, you're using HTTPS on that target server, and so UCCX will have to trust the Issuing CA of that SSL cert.  Did you take care of that already?  You will need to upload the CA cert to the Tomcat-Trust of UCCX.

The script uses the Tomcat-Trust keystore under OS Administration. This changed in version 10.

See here, scroll down a bit, or search the page for "keystore"


I am having the same issue. Permissions should allow me to post to the web server folder, but I continue to get the 405 error.

My script is creating a text file document from the repository and then trying to Post that file. 

Any ideas?



First, Why are you using the Create File Document and Cache Document steps?  If you simply need to refer to a document in the repo, just create a Document variable with a value of DOC[filename].  Then, whereever you reference it, the contents will be used.  You might have to cast it to a string first, which is like this

(String) myvariablename

Second, most REST based POST take  body and not a parameter.  I see you're putting your document in the parameters, and you might need to make it the body.

Can you confirm this with the REST server documentation or admin?

Otherwise, simply delete you parameter and move it into the Body.

Also, if you can, make it work in a REST client outside of the Editor first, to figure out things like this, then move it into the editor.  E.g., Firefox Plugin RESTED


So I changed my script to be:

dJCW  Create file  ("JCWReport.txt)  - Get's the file from the Repo

Set  sBody = dJCW  - Sets the file contents to a String variable

Make Rest - I deleted the Parameter and sBody is in the Body doing a Post

I get error 405 Method not allowed

Any ideas?


So I the web server admin finally got the permissions all corrected. Now when I run the REST it comes back with success however, the txt file is not updated. I know I am missing something simple here, but I dont see it.



I am actually trying to take a document from the Repo and put it on a web server.

Right now I can GET and xml file from the web server using the Make Rest, but can not GET a txt file. Also, I can not POST anything to the web server.

In FF RESTED I can Get both the xml and txt from the web server. I still have not figured out how to POST.



Hello Anthony,

I'm trying in my uccx script to refer to a json document in the repository but I'm getting the below error in the MIVR logs.

Attached you can find screenshots from my script. I would appreciate if you can take a look at them and advise on what I'm doing wrong.

Thank you in advance.
