JSON trouble. content length is Zero.

Hi there, 

 

I am using a flow to gather in put from wordpress via a gravity form. 

My flow starts with a HTTP request  then sends an email the email should contain the data from the json. 

( this is not the final aim of the flow but a good way to test that the data is coming through correctly ) 

 

I post my data from a PHP function with in the functions.php of my word press theme. 

My flow is activated correctly. I get the email BUT there is no content.  

my Json seems to parse correctly but when I test it the content lenght says zero?

 

I have checked to see that there is data in the array prior to the JSON being sent to the flow. 

here are some images that may hep expalin what is happening.

Re: JSON trouble. content length is Zero.

Yes SOLVED.

 

so if any one else is encourntering a similar problem:

 

Check you are doing your header correctly. 

and  generate your JSON payload then use the genertae schema button on the flow component.

 

Then there should be no troubles! 

 

Cheers

Jennie.

Re: JSON trouble. content length is Zero.

Hi @Jennie ,

Could you please share a full screenshot of the Schema in the INPUTS ?

Please make sure the "name" field has value.

Re: JSON trouble. content length is Zero.

hi @v-zhos-msft   Thanks for your quic response. 

 

here is what I am sending from my wordpress funcitons file and headers looks like this. 

 

$header = array('Content-Type' => 'application/json; charset=utf-8');
$response = $request->post( $post_url, array('headers'=>$header), array('body' => $body ) );

 and body is sent like this... 

 

$body = array(
'name' => "jennie",//$namef." ".$names,
'email' => rgar( $entry, '3' ),
'phone' => rgar( $entry, '4' ),
'book_inspection' =>rgar($entry,'6'),
'message'=>rgar($entry,'16'),
'property_to_inspect_line1' => rgar($entry,'2.1'),
'property_to_inspect_line2' => rgar($entry,'2.2'),
'property_to_inspect_city' => rgar($entry,'2.3'),
'property_to_inspect_region' => rgar($entry,'2.4'),
'property_to_inspect_postal_code' => rgar($entry,'2.5'),
'property_to_inspect_age'=>rgar($entry,'10'),
"property_to_inspect_size"=>rgar($entry, '11'),
"property_to_inspect_levels"=>rgar($entry,'12'),
"property_to_inspect_os_contact"=>rgar($entry, '13'),
"property_to_inspect_os_phone" =>rgar($entry,'14'),
"real_estate_agent_name" => rgar( $entry, '18.3' )." ".rgar( $entry, '18.6' ),
"real_estate_phone" =>rgar($entry,'19'),
"real_estate_company" =>rgar($entry,'21')
);

 

 

As you can see I have hard coded the name  in so that it definetly has a value. 

my JSON in the HTTP requested recived trigger.

 

is like this... 

{
    "properties": {
        "name": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "email": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "phone": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "book_inspection": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "message": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_line1": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_line2": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_city": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_region": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_postal_code": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_age": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_size": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_levels": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_os_contact": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "property_to_inspect_os_phone": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "real_estate_agent_name": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "real_estate_phone": {
            "type": "string"
        },
        "real_estate_company": {
            "type": "string"
        }
    },
    "type": "object"
}

Do I have to define the content type in that section ? 

This is the response i recive back code side

I am thinking that the problem lays in the way that I am passing the header content type? 

would love some help figuring it out though! 

 

Thank you for your time.

Hi @Jennie ,

Thanks for your feedback.

I can't figure out where is the problem currently, I will do more research on this issue.

Thank you for your patience.

Re: JSON trouble. content length is Zero.

I got it! 

 

So my body ( the JSON schema ) produced in the PHP was not matching, even though it appeared too.

It had the object tag at the bottom instead of the top, I used the payload to generate the scheme button, and it then worked. Thank you for taking the time to help, expaining my problem really helped me find the issue.

Yes SOLVED.

 

so if any one else is encourntering a similar problem:

 

Check you are doing your header correctly. 

and  generate your JSON payload then use the genertae schema button on the flow component.

 

Then there should be no troubles! 

 

Cheers

Jennie.
