Automaat Processor: Redis Command

🚧 Work In Progress 🚧


An Automaat processor to execute HTTP requests.

This processor allows you to make simple HTTP requests. It supports request headers, setting a request body, and asserting the response status.

If more power or functionality is needed, we can add it as needed. However, you can always use the Shell Command processor combined with a utility like cURL if you need more advanced functionality.



A GET request with headers attached.

use automaat_core::{Context, Processor};
use automaat_processor_http_request::{HttpRequest, Method, Header};
use url::Url;

let context = Context::new()?;
let url = Url::parse("https://httpbin.org/headers")?;
let headers = vec![
    Header::new("accept", "application/json"),
    Header::new("content-type", "text/html"),

let processor = HttpRequest {
    url: url,
    method: Method::GET,
    headers: headers,
    body: None,
    assert_status: vec![],

let output = processor.run(&context)?;


Simple POST request with a query parameter and a body.

use automaat_core::{Context, Processor};
use automaat_processor_http_request::{Method, HttpRequest };
use url::Url;

let context = Context::new()?;
let url = Url::parse("https://httpbin.org/response-headers?hello=world")?;

let processor = HttpRequest {
    url: url,
    method: Method::POST,
    headers: vec![],
    body: Some("universe".to_owned()),
    assert_status: vec![200],

let output = processor.run(&context)?;
