Power Automate omits/strips off the HTTP Content-Type Header  from Flow HTTP GET Requests?

Currently Microsoft Power Automate omits/strips off the HTTP Content-Type Header  from Flow HTTP GET Requests.

 

This behaviour is mentioned in the documentation:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-nl/azure/connectors/connectors-native-http#omitted-http-headers

 

But this behaviour seems to conflict REST API specification and makes it impossible to consume REST APIs that require the Content-Type Header in HTTP GET Requests from Microsoft Flow.

 

there seems to be at least some debate/unclarity on to whether Content-Type should or should not be required in HTTP GET requests:

 

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5661596/do-i-need-a-content-type-header-for-http-get-requests 

https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231#section-3.1.1.5

 

but currently the fact remains, that Flows is unusable when trying to consume REST API that do require the Content-Type header being set on GET requests.

 

thanks in advance,
