Hi to all,

I tried to do the same call with POSTMAN directly to LMS Endpoint

And i am receiving the json error.

    Hello Claudio,

    while Sriprasad Shivaram Bhat's answer is true for HTTP exceptions, it doesn't work in your setup because you use the Successfactors adapter which behaves differently compared to the plain http adapter.

    As you have seen (and mentioned in the comments) you can't call the "getResponseBody()" function, because the Successfactors adapter doesn't throw an AhcOperationFailedException but an ODataProcessingException which has no such method. By use of the following code snippet, you can check which functions an exception class does support:

    import groovy.xml.MarkupBuilder
    Message processData(Message message) {
       def sw = new StringWriter()
       def builder = new MarkupBuilder(sw)
       builder.methods {
 { m ->
       return message

    The result of this call shows, that there's no function which returns the HTML body:

      <method>public static</method>
      <method>public static,java.lang.Throwable)</method>
      <method>public java.lang.String java.lang.Throwable.getMessage()</method>
      <method>public java.lang.String java.lang.Throwable.getLocalizedMessage()</method>
      <method>public synchronized java.lang.Throwable java.lang.Throwable.getCause()</method>
      <method>public synchronized java.lang.Throwable java.lang.Throwable.initCause(java.lang.Throwable)</method>
      <method>public java.lang.String java.lang.Throwable.toString()</method>
      <method>public void java.lang.Throwable.printStackTrace()</method>
      <method>public void java.lang.Throwable.printStackTrace(</method>
      <method>public void java.lang.Throwable.printStackTrace(</method>
      <method>public synchronized java.lang.Throwable java.lang.Throwable.fillInStackTrace()</method>
      <method>public java.lang.StackTraceElement[] java.lang.Throwable.getStackTrace()</method>
      <method>public void java.lang.Throwable.setStackTrace(java.lang.StackTraceElement[])</method>
      <method>public final synchronized void java.lang.Throwable.addSuppressed(java.lang.Throwable)</method>
      <method>public final synchronized java.lang.Throwable[] java.lang.Throwable.getSuppressed()</method>
      <method>public final native java.lang.Class java.lang.Object.getClass()</method>
      <method>public native int java.lang.Object.hashCode()</method>
      <method>public boolean java.lang.Object.equals(java.lang.Object)</method>
      <method>public final native void java.lang.Object.notify()</method>
      <method>public final native void java.lang.Object.notifyAll()</method>
      <method>public final native void java.lang.Object.wait(long) throws java.lang.InterruptedException</method>
      <method>public final void java.lang.Object.wait(long,int) throws java.lang.InterruptedException</method>
      <method>public final void java.lang.Object.wait() throws java.lang.InterruptedException</method>

    So from my perspective you have only two options:

    1. Stick with Successfactors adapter and accept that you can't access the HTML body from the exceptions thrown.
    2. Switch from Successfactors adapter to plain HTTP adapter. Then you can access the body, but will lose all the comfort of the Successfactors adapter...

    Hello Raffael,

    As per my understanding this is not yet supported so I have already requested Claudio to open ticket to LOD-HCI-PI-GB.

    Hello Claudio,

    Please refer below script which provides details on how to retrieve HTTP Error Response ( use this script inside exception subprocess so that you will be able to capture the error whenever there is a failure ).

    • Hi Sriprasad,

      i used the script mentioned, but seems that it just extract the exception for

      In my case the exception seems be different, i tried to remove the if condition, but seems that the excepiton isn't able to manage the payload:

      Error Details An internal server error occured: No signature of method: is applicable for argument types: () values: []. The MPL ID for the failed message is : AF8n8pP3M_fklICuwcddZLp9sDF5 For more details please check tail log
