How to create a virtaction with a generic path

Hi,

I am trying to create a VS from Empty REST. I want to add a virtaction that will take any path for GET or POST or any other operation. 

e.g. My VirtAction will have GET /{Any path}. So, during playback any GET requests will match with that virtaction path.

Please suggest if the tool allows defining generic paths using regexp or anything.

Thanks!

Hopefully this might help 
Create a new VirtAction, set the method as Get and Resource Path as /{operation}. Include the curly brackets

Set your dispatch style to Sequence and set up a response

so, as below,  when you visit the endpoint (regardless of the value for the operation parameter), you will get the same response
http://localhost:8082/xyz 
http://localhost:8082/efg

Hi,

Tried as you suggested. My VirtAction is GET /{operation} but when I send a request to the virtual service, I am getting a HTTP405 Method not allowed error.

 

Thanks!

In your Response, what is your Http Status Code, Content Type and response value (in the Editor tab)?

Have you any additional configuration set? Are you seeing anything in error logs?

Getting a HTTP404 because the URL in the incoming request is not able to match with the Virtaction path. I have a HTTP200 in my dispatch response file. It is not even trying to see what is there in the dispatch settings.
