Sometimes you may need to use a message body to authenticate to a REST API. Here’s how to do that in Grow.
If the method type you use is POST, you can use a header of
content-type : form-data and then use the parameters for the message body.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Request method: POST
Parameters: the key/value pairs for your message body.
Please note that the headers will always be
form-data when sending a message body.
Below are two examples of requests, one in Postman and the same request in Grow.
In this screenshot, the
form-data header is outlined, along with the key-value pair for the message body.
Below, in Grow, the headers and parameters are outlined. The request method should be set to POST.
