Function: string llGetHTTPHeader( key request_id, string header );

Returns a string that is the value for header for request_id.

• key request_id A valid HTTP request key.
• string header Lower case header value name.

Returns an empty string if the header is not found, if the request_id is not a valid key received through the http_request event, or if the headers can no longer be accessed. Headers can only be accessed before llHTTPResponse is called and with-in the first 30 seconds after the http_request event is queued.


Generated Headers

These headers are automatically generated by the simulator, they were not actually sent by the requesting client. They supply information about the request to make parsing easier.

Sample URL: https://sim3015.aditi.lindenlab.com:12043/cap/a7717681-2c04-e4ac-35e3-1f01c9861322/foo/bar?arg=gra

header description example
"x-script-url" The base url, as originally received from llRequestURL/llRequestSecureURL https://sim3015.aditi.lindenlab.com:12043/cap/a7717681-2c04-e4ac-35e3-1f01c9861322
"x-path-info" Any trailing path information from the requested url /foo/bar
"x-query-string" Any query arguments, the text past the first "?" in the url arg=gra
"x-remote-ip" IP address of the host that made the request

Common Headers

header description example
"user-agent" The user-agent header as reported by the requester

llHTTPRequest Headers

Headers sent by the simulator in the course of calling llHTTPRequest.
Header Description Example data
connection Connection options close
cache-control Maximum response age accepted. max-age=259200
x-forwarded-for Used to show the IP address connected to through proxies.
via Shows the recipients and protocols used between the User Agent and the server. 1.1 sim10115.agni.lindenlab.com:3128 (squid/2.7.STABLE9)
content-length The size of the entity-body, in decimal number of octets. 17
pragma The message should be forwarded to the server, even if it has a cached version of the data. no-cache
x-secondlife-shard The environment the object is in. "Production" is the main grid and "Testing" is the preview grid Production
x-secondlife-region The name of the region the object is in, along with the global coordinates of the region's south-west corner Jin Ho (264448, 233984)
x-secondlife-owner-name Legacy name of the owner of the object Zeb Wyler
x-secondlife-owner-key UUID of the owner of the object 01234567-89ab-cdef-0123-456789abcdef
x-secondlife-object-name The name of the object containing the script Object
x-secondlife-object-key The key of the object containing the script 01234567-89ab-cdef-0123-456789abcdef
x-secondlife-local-velocity The velocity of the object 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000
x-secondlife-local-rotation The rotation of the object containing the script 0.000000, 0.000000, 0.000000, 1.000000
x-secondlife-local-position The position of the object within the region (173.009827, 75.551231, 60.950001)
user-agent The user-agent header sent by LSL Scripts. Contains Server version. Second Life LSL/ (http://secondlife.com)
content-type The media type of the entity body. text/plain; charset=utf-8
accept-charset Acceptable character sets from the server. Q being the quality expected when sending the different character sets. utf-8;q=1.0, *;q=0.5
accept Media types the server will accept. text/*, application/xhtml+xml, application/atom+xml, application/json, application/xml, application/llsd+xml, application/x-javascript, application/javascript, application/x-www-form-urlencoded, application/rss+xml
accept-encoding Acceptable content encodings for the server. deflate, gzip
host The internet host being requested. secondlife.com
  • CGI environments may place the headers into variables by capitalizing the entire name, replacing dashes with underscores, and prefixing the name with "HTTP_", e.g. "x-secondlife-object-name" becomes "HTTP_X_SECONDLIFE_OBJECT_NAME".
  • HTTP header names are case insensitive [1]. Some ISPs may modify the case of header names, as was seen in BUG-5094.
