HTTP -- get HTTP headers

  • Called with the name of an HTTP header field, returns its value. Capitalization and the use of hyphens versus underscores are not significant.
  • Syntax: %HTTP%
  • Syntax: %HTTP{"Header-name"}%
  • Examples:
    %HTTP%  
    %HTTP{"Accept-language"}%  
    %HTTP{"User-Agent"}% ia_archiver
  • Limitation: For security reasons, the COOKIE field value cannot be retrieved. You can add or delete hidden fields by changing the {HTTP}{HiddenFields} configuration parameter.
  • Note: You can see the HTTP headers your browser sends to the server on a number of sites e.g. http://www.ericgiguere.com/tools/http-header-viewer.html
