[MarkLogic Dev General] How to pass parameters between JavaScript functions?

ML JavaScript newbie question…

I’m simply trying to pass the response from my httpGet call into my parseFlights function. The httpGet call returns a valid JSON document. However, it looks like the parameter that gets passed to the parseFlights function is always blank.



var username = 'moody1';
var apiKey = '#########';

var fxml_base_url = 'http://flightxml.flightaware.com/json/FlightXML2/';
var url_endpoint = 'SearchBirdseyeInFlight?howMany';
var url = fxml_base_url + url_endpoint;

function getFlightsInAir() {
  var resp = fn.subsequence(xdmp.httpGet(url, {"authentication":{"method":"basic","username":username,"password":apiKey}}), 2, 1);

  // return resp;          // this displays a valid JSON document
  parseFlights(resp);      // pass the JSON document to parseFlights function

function parseFlights(flights) {
  return flights;          // this data is always blank


Any help would be appreciated!!
