Hi,

Thanks for Fiddler and FiddlerCore.  I have been using them to mock my https requests to a server and send back my customized response.

(Autoresponder).

 

Is it possible to achieve the same for websocket requests. 

I need to intercept the websocket requests, send my own JSON file as a response.

 

Any leads please?

 

Thanks,

Malleswari

Hi Malleswari,

At this time, Fiddler doesn't expose functionality to manually modify WebSocket messages as they pass through. For now, you can modify messages using FiddlerScript and the OnWebSocketMessage handler. Let me provide an example for what this would look like.

The following logic would append the string  "... bazinga!" to the payload:

static function OnWebSocketMessage(oMsg: WebSocketMessage) {
    // Conditionally modify message content
    var sPayload = oMsg.PayloadAsString();
    if (sPayload.Contains("time")) {
        oMsg.SetPayload(sPayload + "... bazinga!");
    }
    // FiddlerApplication.Log.LogString(oMsg.ToString());
}

We do have existing feature requests for WebSocket message manipulation. These can be viewed at the WebSocket playback and Send Direct Messages threads. Additionally, I have increased the priority of the 2 items and encourage you to cast a vote as well. 

Please let me know if you have any additional questions and thank you for using Fiddler.

Thanks for the reply Eric.

The event handler OnWebSocketMessage()  is invoked after we establish a WS connection. 

My requirement is to write a test method which removes all external dependencies.  

Hence, I am looking out if there is a way to send a hardcoded response even if the server is not responding, that means, to intercept the request before it reaches the server like OnBeforeRequest() + Autoresponder.

 

Thanks,

Malleswari

Hi Malleswari,

At the present time, this feature isn't available for WebSockets. I encourage you to follow the WebSocket playback and Send Direct Messages feedback requests. Additionally, the Release History will provide the most relevant information for releases.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions. Thank you.
