I have a client using Akana, and we are trying to pull metrics from Akana through a restful API. However, with the Rest Plugin available on the community we are not able to do this. As we first need to Login to Akana through a POST then do some string manipulation to a token and cookie which will be used for the GET requests to pull metrics.
I was wondering if anyone has written or modified the current rest plugin to do so, and if you have, then would you be able to share it?
I think in this case its best to develop your own plugin. If you have some custom logic to login first and then probably use a token to make the next REST Calls its better to do this with a custom plugin
There is plenty of documentation out there on how to create your own plugin. We also have some youtube tutorials on http://bit.ly/dttutorials
