How to send data in request body with a GET when using jQuery ajax

0 votes

I am using the following jQuery code however observing the request/response in fiddler I can see that the "data" I am sending is ALWAYS converted and appended to the query string despite me setting the "processData" option to false...

$.ajax({
   url: "htttp://api.com/entity/list($body)",
   type: "GET",
   data: "id1-id2-id3",
   contentType: "text/plain",
   dataType: "json",
   processData: false, // avoid the data being parsed to query string params
   success: onSuccess,
   error: onError
});

Anyone know how I can force the "data" value to be sent in the body of the request?

Hello @kartik,

Sending the data in your scenario,I would suggest you to use the query-string or query-parameters.

1.GET use of Query string as:

 {{url}}admin/recordings/some_id

here the some_id is mendatory parameter to send and can be used and req.params.some_id at server side.

2.GET use of query string as:

{{url}}admin/recordings?durationExact=34&isFavourite=true

here the durationExact ,isFavourite is optional strings to send and can be used and req.query.durationExact and req.query.isFavourite at server side.

3.GET Sending arrays

 {{url}}admin/recordings/sessions/?os["Windows","Linux","Macintosh"]

and you can access those array values at server side like this

let osValues = JSON.parse(req.query.os);
        if(osValues.length > 0)
        {
            for (let i=0; i<osValues.length; i++)
            {
                console.log(osValues[i])
                //do whatever you want to do here
            }
        }

Hope it helps!
Thank You!!
