postdata

Hi,

I'm trying to learn how to use postdata with webgrab, what am I doing wrong that I'm not getting any response? If I prase it using python the response is just fine.

channel update="i" site="pl.canalplus.com" site_id="309" site_channel="http://m-tvguide.pl/ikony/PL/25.05.2021/tvn_24_pl.png" xmltv_id="TVN 24 PL">TVN 24 PL

your postdata is wrong

But the request payload looks like this: {"id":"309","logical_date":"2021-09-07T00:00:00+02:00"}

I also tried writing it as a string postdata=id='channel'&logical_date='urldate' without luck.

How can it be wrong, what am I missing?

what is your urldate ? Is in format yyyy-MM-dd
so it will be 2021-09-07...what is missing compared to request postadata ?

Yes, so the missing part is T00:00:00+02:00 but when I tried using a python request the date 2021-09-07 was enough to get a response. I will read the documentation and try to add the missing part in webgrab.

you can just add it after urldate because it doesn't change
url_index.headers {postdata={"id":"'channel'","logical_date":"'urldate'T00:00:00+02:00"}}

your url_index ends with wrong character should be }
