# Example Scripts

This section contains example scripts in PHP, Python, and NodeJS. For additional examples please consult these resources:

# NodeJS Custom Logging

This script monitors usage of a particular service, saving history in a database table. Each time a GET call is made on an API endpoint, write the transaction details to a 'TransactionHistory' table. Record the user name, application API key, and timestamp.

// To enable Node.js scripting, set the path to node in your DreamFactory .env file.
// This setting is commented out by default.
// DF_NODEJS_PATH=/usr/local/bin/node
// Use npm to install any dependencies. This script requires 'lodash.'
// Your scripts can call console.log to dump info to the log file in storage/logs.

var payload = {

    user_name: platform.session.user.email,
    api_key: platform.session.api_key,
    timestamp: (new Date()).toString()

platform.api.post("db/_table/TransactionHistory", {"resource": [payload]}, '', function(body, response){

    console.log(response.statusCode + " " + response.statusMessage);
    event.setResponse(JSON.parse(body), response.statusCode, 'applicaton/json');

# PHP Dynamic Authorization Headers

This PHP script is retrieving the configuration details for a particular Service and modifying the authorization headers. It can be very useful to have a script automatically do this for you if you are maintaining many Services that rotate passwords. The $randomNum variable can even be replaced with a seperate API call to an OAuth endpoint for example that returns a JWT for authentication against your Service. Finally this script can be attached to our Scheduler feature to automatically run this script to ensure you are always authenticated.

// Configuring variables
$url = 'system/service/<service_id>';
$api = $platform['api'];
$get = $api->get;
$options = [];
$randomNum = rand(1000000000000,5000000000000000000);

// Retrieve the service details
$calling = $get($url);
$configAuth = $calling["content"];
// Set the new Auth Header for the Service
$configAuth["config"]["options"] = "abc".$randomNum;

// Setting the payload to have the new Auth Header
$payload = $configAuth;

// Execute a PATCH to replace the previous Auth Header of the Service
$postURL = 'system/service';
$patch = $api->patch;

$result = $patch($url, $payload, $options);

return $result;
