Error info as

When creating an HTTP request you'll notice that you can set the variable error info as. This variable collects error information about the request. It currently holds the following data:

  • success Was the request successful?
  • message The (error) message the service returned

The data is stored in JSON:

{"success":false,"message":"Failed to reach web service within 20 seconds"}

Getting the error information

The variable you declared in the field error info as can be used to get more information about a possible error. You can get information out of the variable using the following expression:


You can use this in a text expression variable.
