I cannot access to response object in a cloud code function?

I’ve searched a lot around and coudn’t find a way to access the response object of a cloud function (I’m using parse-server version 3.10.0). I’m missing something?

This is a basic need for every express developer. How can I add response headers, change the response statusCode, sending different Content-Type, pipe stream data to response etc. etc?

Please help. Thanks

That’s not the purpose of cloud code functions. If you want to handle the express.js request/response by yourself for more customized usage, you can just mount custom routes or middleware to the app. Something like:

var express = require('express');
var ParseServer = require('parse-server').ParseServer;
var app = express();

var api = new ParseServer({
  databaseURI: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/dev', // Connection string for your MongoDB database
  cloud: '/home/myApp/cloud/main.js', // Absolute path to your Cloud Code
  appId: 'myAppId',
  masterKey: 'myMasterKey', // Keep this key secret!
  fileKey: 'optionalFileKey',
  serverURL: 'http://localhost:1337/parse' // Don't forget to change to https if needed
});

// Serve the Parse API on the /parse URL prefix
app.use('/parse', api);

app.use('/your-custom-path', yourCustomMidleware);

app.listen(1337, function() {
  console.log('parse-server-example running on port 1337.');
});
