Component Version macOS Windows Linux Server iOS SDK
CURL 2.5 ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes ✅ Yes
MBS( "CURL.GetRedirectURL"; curl )   More


Parameter Description Example
curl The CURL session handle. $curl


Returns the requested value or nothing on error.


Queries redirect URL.
Get the URL a redirect would take you to if you would enable CURL.SetOptionFollowLocation.
This can come very handy if you think using the built-in libcurl redirect logic isn't good enough for you but you would still prefer to avoid implementing all the magic of figuring out the new URL.


Do not follow, but return redirect URL:

# Start new session
Set Variable [ $curl ; Value: MBS("CURL.New") ]
# Set URL to load
Set Variable [ $result ; Value: MBS("CURL.SetOptionURL"; $curl; CURL Test::URL) ]
# RUN now
Set Field [ CURL Test::Result ; MBS("CURL.Perform"; $curl) ]
# Check result
Set Field [ CURL Test::Text ; MBS("CURL.GetResultAsText"; $curl; "UTF8") ]
Set Field [ CURL Test::newURL ; MBS("CURL.GetRedirectURL"; $curl) ]
Set Field [ CURL Test::debug ; MBS("CURL.GetDebugMessages"; $curl) ]
# Cleanup
Set Variable [ $result ; Value: MBS("CURL.Release"; $curl) ]
