Recording Requests to File

Record all requests made to Broadsign Server from Broadsign Administrator to debug your applications and refine how you use our API methods.

Start and stop recording requests to file from within Broadsign Administrator.

To record requests to file:
  1. In the top-right corner of the Broadsign Administrator interface, select the domain menu icon.

  1. From the drop-down menu, select Record Requests to File.

  1. Windows’ file explorer opens with the title “Record dscp to file”. Choose the location in which you want to save the recording.
  2. Give the file a name. We recommend using the .xml file type.

  1. Click Save.

Broadsign Administrator will now continually save all requests to file.

To stop recording requests to file:

Go to the domain menu, and select Stop Recording Requests to File. Broadsign will immediately stop recording.

The “record requests to file” feature provides details about the WSDL requests Broadsign Administrator makes to Broadsign Server.

Key to navigating the data in the file is knowing the ID# of resources in question.

In our example, we will look at the API calls made using the reservation_mgr_add WSDL (among others) to book campaign ID# 9881.

To interpret the request file:
  1. Open the file in a text editor.
  2. For our example, search for “9881”. You will see the WSDLs involved in creating our new campaign.
