Understanding Request types

What is a Request?

WebAutomation monitors your usage based on the number of requests you make to a website. The simplest way to describe a request is one page or URL e.g. if your extractor gets data from 10 product pages that would be considered as 10 requests

 

Request types

Depending on the complexity and type of data that is being extracted different request types are required

Regular requests: This is used to extract static HTML content from websites

Browser request: This type of request is best used to extract dynamic content most commonly using Javascript libraries like Jquery or ReactJs or Angular to dynamically create HTML data. Headless chrome are used for this request type

Advanced request: This type of request is best used to extract data which is protected by anti-bot systems like re-captcha
