Zenoss::Response(3)   User Contributed Perl Documentation  Zenoss::Response(3)

NAME
       Zenoss::Response	- Handles responses from Zenoss::Router

SYNOPSIS
	   use Zenoss;
	   use Data::Dumper;

	   # Create a Zenoss object
	   my $api = Zenoss->connect(
	       {
		   username    => 'admin',
		   password    => 'zenoss',
		   url	       => 'http://zenossinstance:8080',
	       }
	   );

	   # Issue a request to	get all	devices	from Zenoss
	   my $response	= $api->device_getDevices();

	   # $response is now an instance of Zenoss::Response
	   # now we can	do things like
	   print $response->json();
	   print $response->http_code();

	   # get the response in reference form
	   my $reference = $response->decoded();
	   print Dumper	$reference;

DESCRIPTION
       This module is NOT instantiated directly.  When the Zenoss API issues a
       response	to a request initiated by Zenoss::Router, a Zenoss::Response
       instance	is created.  To	call methods from this module create an
       instance	of Zenoss and issue a request to the Zenoss API.

       Please review the SYNOPSIS for examples.

ATTRIBUTES
       Attributes can be retrieved by calling $obj->attribute.

   sent_tid
       This attribute is set upon the creation of Zenoss::Response by
       Zenoss::Router.	Each request issued to the Zenoss API is coded with a
       transaction ID (tid).  This can be compared with	the received_tid to
       ensure that the proper response was received for	what was requested.

   received_tid
       This attribute is set by	extracting the transaction ID (tid) from the
       response	Zenoss sends.  This can	be compared with the sent_tid to
       ensure that the proper response was received for	what was requested.

METHODS
   $obj->json()
       Returns the response, from the Zenoss API request, in JSON format.

   $obj->decoded()
       Returns the result response, from the Zenoss API	request, in a PERL
       reference.

   $obj->raw_response()
       Returns a textual representation	of the response.

   $obj->http_code()
       Returns a 3 digit number	that encodes the overall outcome of a HTTP
       response.

       For example 200,	for OK.

   $obj->http_code_description()
       Returns a short human readable single line string that explains the
       response	code.

       For example, OK.

   $obj->http_status()
       Returns the string "<http_code> <http_code_description>". If the
       http_code_description attribute is not set then the official name of
       <code> (see HTTP::Status) is substituted.

   $obj->is_success()
       Returns true if the http	response was successful.  Note this does not
       mean the	API request was	successful or not.

       See HTTP::Status	for the	meaning	of these.

   $obj->is_error()
       Returns true if the http	response had an	error.	Note this does not
       mean the	API request was	successful or not.

       See HTTP::Status	for the	meaning	of these.

   $obj->error_as_HTML()
       Returns a string	containing a complete HTML document indicating what
       error occurred.	This method should only	be called when $obj->is_error
       is TRUE.

   $obj->header()
       This is used to get header values and it	is inherited from
       HTTP::Headers via HTTP::Message.

   $obj->request_time()
       Calculates the "current age" of the response as specified by RFC	2616
       section 13.2.3.	The age	of a response is the time since	it was sent by
       the origin server. The returned value is	a number representing the age
       in seconds.

   $obj->received_tid()
       Returns the transaction id (tid)	that was returned by Zenoss.

   $obj->sent_tid()
       Returns the transaction id (tid)	that was sent to Zenoss
