Getting NULL Deserialize value using Web API Passing Token and ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-890662221 posted

    I am new to web api. I am not sure if my syntax is correct. Please if you can provide some guidance.

    the web api takes two "parameters". #1 A token (which I retrieved from another api) and #2 A ID from another table.

    I am calling a web api passing in a token in the header and a json id. But I am getting Null from JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<string>(myHttpWebResponse.Headers["ReqId"]);

    private string HttpPostRequest(string url, string token)
                GetID md = new GetID ();
                md.IdStr = Id;
                postData = JsonConvert.SerializeObject(md);
                HttpWebRequest myHttpWebRequest = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create(url);
                myHttpWebRequest.Method = "POST";
                byte[] data = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes(postData);
                myHttpWebRequest.ContentType = "application/json; charset=utf-8";
                myHttpWebRequest.ContentLength = data.Length;
                myHttpWebRequest.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer " + token);
                myHttpWebRequest.Timeout = 1200000; // 20 min
                Stream requestStream = myHttpWebRequest.GetRequestStream();
                requestStream.Write(data, 0, data.Length);
                HttpWebResponse myHttpWebResponse = (HttpWebResponse)myHttpWebRequest.GetResponse();
                if (myHttpWebResponse.StatusCode == HttpStatusCode.OK)
                    string reqID = JsonConvert.DeserializeObject<string>(myHttpWebResponse.Headers["ReqId"]);
                    Stream responseStream = myHttpWebResponse.GetResponseStream();
                    StreamReader myStreamReader = new StreamReader(responseStream, Encoding.Default);
                     pageContent = myStreamReader.ReadToEnd();
                    return pageContent;

    Got it working. I was requesting the wrong Header.
