From Protobuf's Google, Protocol buffers are Google's language-neutral, platform-neutral, extensible mechanism for serializing structured data – think XML, but smaller, faster, and simpler.
You define how you want your data to be structured once, then you can use special generated source code to easily write and read your structured data to and from a variety of data streams and using a variety of languages.
Proxyamn is capable of reading a Protobuf Binary and parsing to JSON Format with given Protobuf Schema.
2. Protobuf Schema
This guide describes how to use the protocol buffer language to structure your protocol buffer data, including .protofile syntax and how to generate data access classes from your .proto files.
Proxyman supports both proto2 and proto3 syntax. Read more
3. Protobuf Rules
Defind a Protobuf Config for matching URL:
3.1 Matching Rule:
Matching URL (Support wildcard)
Include all subpaths
All subpath of this URL is automatically matched
ANY or Exact certain HTTP Method
3.2 Protobuf Config:
Add .proto schema file if need
The Class name of the root object in Protobuf binary. Must include Package name
Payload Type: Auto
Auto detect if the Protobuf Binary is encoding as a Single Message or Delimited Message
Payload Type: Single Message
Single Mesage in a Protobuf Binary
Payload Type: Delimited Message
Multiple Messages in a Protobuf Binary (Length-Prefix)
4. How to use?
There are two ways to parse Protobuf properly with qualified name fields:
Define Protobuf Rules
Read from Content-Type Header
4.1 Define Protobuf Rule
Make a request, which has Content-Type: application/x-protobuf or Content-Type: application/protobuf
You can see the Warning that Proxyman couldn't parse properly due to the absence of Message Type. Click Add to open Protobuf Settings
3. Add Schema and fill Message type and Payload Type
4. Click Add and see qualified JSON Format
4.2 Read from Content-Type Header
You can dynamically provide the Protobuf Config from Content-Type
For example: Your Content-Type in the Request or Response might look like:
