Post Serve Action¶
PostServeAction allows you to execute custom code after a response has been served in simulate or spy mode.
It is custom script that can be written in any language. Hoverfly has the ability to invoke a script or binary file on a host operating system. Custom code is execute after a provided delay(in ms) once simulated response is served.
We can register multiple post serve actions.
In order to register post serve action, it takes mainly four parameters - binary to invoke script, script content/location, delay(in ms) post which it will be executed and name of that action.
Ways to register a Post Serve Action¶
At time of startup by passing single/multiple -post-serve-action flag(s) as mentioned in the hoverfly command page.
Via PUT API to register new post serve action as mentioned in the API page.
Using command line hoverctl post-serve-action set command as mentioned in the hoverctl command page.
Once post serve action is registered, we can trigger particular post serve action by putting it in response part of request-response pair in simulation JSON.
Example Simulation JSON
"postServeAction": "<name of post serve action we want to invoke>"
