Hello everyone, I'm trying to make an HTTP POST request to an external API which needs to pass url-encoded parameters (OAuth2) into the body of the request. In the HTTP command Execute HTTP Request what is the proper way to pass in these parameters into the body of the request? Which option is url encoded? Thanks in advance?

Hi FREFIS001,

For the above query, I would suggest the header name and header value keep the same. For the body please choose the format as Raw Json. For the command, the other input is Raw Data. There you need to assign values, which are available in the postman Body - (x-www-form-urlencoded) tab. The format to assign values in Raw Data field is - "Username=" + vUsername+ "&Password=" + vPassword+"&client_id"+vClientID

The name should match the names available in postman created in the body (x-www-form-urlencoded) tab. and to connect multiple variables with &. Please let me know in case of any queries

Thank you POOMAL001, I've added the headers as recommended but the body needs to be of type urlencoded as well. If I make a Postman query for the Oauth response to work correctly it has to have a header of type and also a body of type. Any way to do this in openBots? In Postman, If I try to use Json with the header of urlencoded it says that it's the wrong query language format. Any thoughts? Thanks

Hi FREFIS001,

Thankyou for sharing your query. For the url-encoded parameter, please pass your header name as - "Content-Type" and Header value as - "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" The body you can choose the format as - Json/Raw Json as per your need.

Please let me know in case of further queries.
