Filter user actions by a http method


Hey all,

I'm trying to define a couple of user actions same xhrurls, but a different http method.

Any way to do this? I tried to add a placeholder "httpMethod" linked to metadata + define user action with xhrurl + httpMethod equal to my verb, but it seems to not work.

Would the "session and action properties" work with the custom-defined property / server-side request feature? Any example of how to do this?

Thanks for your help!

Hello @laurent


My opinion below :

HTTP method is only available on request side not on user actions side.
So you can create a request attribute to catch the HTTP Method and define this request attribute as a user action properties (it will work only for XHR actions because you will have lot of values during loading page action) :



However, you can't use user action property as a placeholder in naming rules :



On your case, I recommend using data dtname :

"If the standard action name detection doesn't serve your purpose, you can also set the data-dtname custom attribute within the HTML tags and use it as a caption. " :

Hi @laurent, did the comment above help you solve your issue? Or maybe you found your own solution? Thanks for letting the Community know!

The only constant is change. Finding ways for great things to happen!


Another way:
If no one agent (only rum)

If no time to mark dtname for all XHR (usually if dtname marks is not a part of SDLC - you will wait for implementation CR)

Ask developers add add parameter or anchor in the query dispatcher method,
than You can parse is via placeholders and create a rule

e.g. {method} {xhr url}

it will be cheap, fast generic solution applied automatically to all XHR you have
