Remember to include a Content-Type header set to application/json in your request.

Hi

 

I am trying to create HTTP Request "When a HTTP request is recevied". Whenever i add "Request Body JSON Schema" the Flow designer prompts me "Remember to include a Content-Type header set to application/json in your request.". I know that i have to define the content-type but how to do it??

 

My Schema is as below

 

 
{
"type": "object",
"properties": {
"type": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/type",
"title": "TheTypeSchema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"profile"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"fired_at": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/fired_at",
"title": "TheFired_atSchema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"2009-03-2621:31:21"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[id]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[id]",
"title": "TheData[id]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"8a25ff1d98"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[list_id]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[list_id]",
"title": "TheData[list_id]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"a6b5da154"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[email]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[email]",
"title": "TheData[email]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"api@mailchimp.com"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[email_type]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[email_type]",
"title": "TheData[email_type]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"html"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[merges][EMAIL]": {
"type": "string",

],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[merges][FNAME]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[merges][FNAME]",
"title": "TheData[merges][fname]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [

"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},

"title": "TheData[merges][lname]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [

],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[merges][INTERESTS]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[merges][INTERESTS]",
"title": "TheData[merges][interests]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"Group1,Group2"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
},
"data[ip_opt]": {
"type": "string",
"$id": "#/properties/data[ip_opt]",
"title": "TheData[ip_opt]Schema",
"default": "",
"examples": [
"10.20.10.30"
],
"pattern": "^(.*)$"
}
},
"definitions": {},
"$schema": "",
"$id": "http://example.com/root.json",
"title": "MailChimp",
"default": null,
"required": [
"type",
"fired_at",
"data[id]",
"data[list_id]",

"data[merges][EMAIL]",
"data[merges][FNAME]",
"data[merges][LNAME]",
"data[merges][INTERESTS]",

Hi @majidb,

 

I am sorry that the link provided does not actually help you, and my explanation above may also confuse you.

 

I mean there is no problem with the flow created by the content you provide. At least the format is in line with the requirements of Flow creation.

 

The flow designer prompts that after you create this flow, you need to include a Content-Type header set to application/json in your request when you send the Http request, such as when you test or send an http request to trigger the flow, not adding a Content type here.

 

For example, using postman to create and send an http request, you could edit the request parameter and the content type header, and add the content type here.

Please take a try.

Hi @majidb,

 

I have made a test on my side using the Schema and Payload you provided and there are indeed such tips, but this is not your flow design error,  just a hint from Flow Designer.

 

When you are editing your Http request, you need to include a Content-Type header.

 

You could click on "Do not show again" and there will be no such prompts in the future.

 

If you want to define the content-type, you can refer to the following link:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/logic-apps/logic-apps-content-type

 

Please take a try and let me know if issue still exist.

 

Best Regards,

Thanks Barry for your reply.

 

I have been through this page, it says that "make sure you include a Content-Type header and set the header's value to application/json" but it does not show where and how?

 

I added below line above my Schema right on the top as 1st line but it did throw errors

 

Content-Type: application/json
