QvRestConnector - update connection string

Hi all,

I use the QvRestConnector to access an internal REST Api. My script was originally developed to work with QvRestConnector v1.0, but now I need to upgrade it to work with QvRestConnector v1.2+.
Apparently, there were breaking changes: additional properties are now required in the connection or you get an 'QVX_UNEXPECTED_END_OF_DATA: The connection format is obsolete' error.

Can someone please explain how I would need to change a connection string like this to comply with the requirements:

CUSTOM CONNECT TO "Provider=QvRestConnector.exe;url=http://mywebserver/api/myWebMethod;timeout=30;method=POST;autoDetectResponseType=false;keyGenerationStrategy=-1;useWindowsAuthentication=false;useCertificate=No;certificateStoreLocation=CurrentUser;certificateStoreName=My;PaginationType=None;XUserId=userIdHash;XPassword=passwordHash;";

Thank you!

You should recreate the connection using the REST connector dialog and the connection string will be automatically generated for you.

In case this is not possible, below is a connection string generated by the latest REST connector (v 2.11)

CUSTOM CONNECT TO "Provider=QvRestConnector.exe;url=https://postman-echo.com/post;timeout=30;method=POST;requestBody=Test POST body;httpProtocol=1.1;isKeepAlive=1;bodyEncoding=UTF-8;sendExpect100Continue=1;autoDetectResponseType=1;checkResponseTypeOnTestConnection=1;keyGenerationStrategy=0;authSchema=anonymous;skipServerCertificateValidation=0;useCertificate=No;certificateStoreLocation=CurrentUser;certificateStoreName=My;addMissingQueryParametersToFinalRequest=0;PaginationType=None;allowResponseHeaders=0;allowHttpsOnly=0;XUserId=WHGXecB;XPassword=NFHQWYA;";


Hope this helps.
