Send Actions to IDOL Server

IDOL Server actions are HTTP requests, which you can send, for example, from your web browser. The general syntax of these actions is:



host is the IP address or name of the machine where IDOL Server is installed.
port is the IDOL Server ACI port. The ACI port is specified by the Port parameter in the [Server] section of the IDOL Server configuration file. For more information about the Port parameter, see the IDOL Server Reference.
action is the name of the action you want to run.
parameters are the required and optional parameters for the action.

Separate individual parameters with an ampersand (&). Separate parameter names from values with an equals sign (=). You must percent-encode all parameter values.

For more information about actions, see the IDOL Server Reference.


As an alternative to sending ACI actions directly, you can run any IDOL action from the IDOL Admin interface. For more information, refer to the IDOL Admin User Guide.
