Can we capture IP Address of the user in vFlow?

Hi Team,

We have received a requirement where we need to capture IP Address of the user in our vFlow application for TU-YBL project and send that IP address in the request of an API.

As of now, In the data section of debugger there is no data of IP Address… so due to that its not possible to send data in request of API. I think this should be a new feature request-

@vipin.verma @nimesh.singh Can you please suggest if some workaround is possible for this.

Yes.

In Passthrough API you will get the all headers.

In REST/SOAP just add parameter in end point headers details get it from header as below:

Right now in vFlow, I don’t think this is possible as this is by default captured by api gateway and send in interfaces but in response we don’t get any data of this kind.
@ShraddhaDhoke : Pls confirm.

@tushar.jain Yes, we cannot save request header in vFlow and it cannot be sent as a C2S request through API task. By default, IP address is also not stored in vFlow.
