Microsoft Online OAuth2 Token cannot handle Content-Type with given Charset


i am trying to get the oauth token via post to


If i try to post with given charset, does not matter what charset, i always get an error and cannot get the token!

This should be fixed! Microsoft should be able to handle given charset inside the header. 


curl --request POST \ --url \ --header 'Accept: */*' \ --header 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset="UTF-8"' \ --header 'Postman-Token: 99b8afdb-b4fc-4cfc-812e-059a256ef6d2' \ --header 'cache-control: no-cache' \ --data 'grant_type=password&client_id=abc&resource=abc&scope=openid&username=abc&password=abc'


A post like this should work! But it does not! I get invalid_request! So please fix this issue, so that given charset parameter are excepted when posting to get microsoft token.
