# Request

Mali Request class encasulates the request of a call. Clients to not create this. Mali does it for us. It is accessible via the context request property. Some ctx properties and methods are just delegated to the request object.

# Example

async function sayHello(ctx) {
  // get some value from request metadata
  console.log(ctx.request.get('foo')) // 'bar'

  // get the call type
  console.log(ctx.request.type) // 'unary'

  // get the request payload
  console.log(ctx.request.req) // { name: 'Bob' }
}

# Properties

# request.call

The internal gRPC call instance reference.

# request.req

The actuall call request object. In case of UNIRY and RESPONSE_STREAM calls it is simply the gRPC call's request. In case of REQUEST_STREAM and DUPLEX calls it's the gRPC call reference itself.

console.log(ctx.request.req) // { name: 'Bob' }

# request.metadata

The call's request metadata plain object.

console.log(ctx.request.metadata)
// { 'user-agent': 'grpc-node/1.7.1 grpc-c/1.7.1 (osx; chttp2)' }

# request.type

The call type. One of CallType enums.

console.log(ctx.request.type) // 'unary'

# Functions

# request.get()

Get a request metadata value.

console.log(ctx.request.get('foo')) // 'bar'

# request.getMetadata()

Get request metadata as a grpc.Metadata object.
