Response HTTP headers

Scraping Fish returns its own headers but preserves all the headers from the original website as well. The original headers are prefixed with Sf- prefix. The Content-Type header is set to original response Content-Type, if it's available.


If the website you want to scrape responds with the following headers:

Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Content-Length: 1256
Server: ECS (dcb/7F84)

then, Scraping Fish API will respond with headers:

<ScrapingFish headers>
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Sf-Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
Sf-Content-Length: 1256
Sf-Server: ECS (dcb/7F84)


If you want to access cookies set by the website, they are available in the Sf-Cookies header in the response from Scraping Fish API.
