Microsoft Flow is not adding the Accept Header but OpenAPI specifies proper "produces" value

Everything I've been reading suggests that if the OpenAPI / Swagger file specifies a value for "prod...

 

However, I have the following OpenAPI file, which to me says I should be getting an "Accept" header on the request of "application/pdf":

{
  "swagger": "2.0",
  "info": {
    "title": "Accounting API",
    "version": "2.0"
  },
  "host": "MyWebSite",
  "basePath": "/api",
  "schemes": [
    "https"
  ],
  "paths": {
    "/Invoices/{InvoiceID}": {
      "get": {
        "summary": "getInvoice - Allows you to retrieve any sales invoices or purchase bills",
        "operationId": "getInvoice",
        "consumes": [
          "application/json"
        ],
        "produces": [
          "application/pdf"
        ],
        "parameters": [
          {
            "required": true,
            "in": "path",
            "name": "InvoiceID",
            "type": "string",
            "format": "uuid"
          }
        ],
        "responses": {
          "200": {
            "description": "A successful request",
            "schema": {
              "$ref": "#/definitions/Invoice"
            }
          }
        },
        "security": [
          {
            "basicAuth": []
          }
        ]
      }
    }
  },
  "securityDefinitions": {
    "basicAuth": {
      "type": "basic"
    }
  },
  "definitions": {

. . . TRUNCATED . . .

When I dump all the headers in my Azure Function which is called by the Microsoft Flow there is not an "Accept" header set. As a result the web service does not return PDF content.

 

Does anybody know how to get Microsoft Flow to pass that information?

Re: Microsoft Flow is not adding the Accept Header but OpenAPI specifies proper "produces"

This appears to be a bug. Based on everything I'm reading on how the OpenAPI specifications should be set the "produces" header should be set as the "Accept" header on any requests. Microsoft Flow does not do this.

 

As a work around you can specify a header parameter for "Accept" and then define that in my flow:

"parameters": [
{
"required": true,
"in": "header",
"name": "accept",
"type": "string"
}
]

 

As a result I have something working, but Microsoft should take a look at this and fix the behavior of Microsoft Flow to match the expected behavior.
