Get Session Identifier



Retrieve the session ID of the current Mobile Device Manager connection to route HTTP commands to Appium endpoints so you can perform custom actions.

Use case example

You can use the WebAPI activity package to make HTTP requests by using the Get Session Identifier to build endpoint request.

In the following example, the HTTP request activity was used to retrieve the system time from an Appium endpoint. The endpointPath variable was used to concatenate the Appium session ID (e.g., "https://yourAppiumURL" + "/session/" + sessionId + "/appium/device/system_time").
