I am trying to perform CRUD operation for rest api.

Currently I am performing the update operation for a form on button click.

Problem :

In Postman

When I hit the api by passing api key in headers section and required parameters in body section and press "Send", the call completed successfully and I am able to see the response.

In code

When I click the button , the same api gets called but I get error with the below message.

{"status":"error","error":"Please provide a task id"}

What I have tried:

My api call :

Request URL :
Request headers :

:method: POST
:path: /tests/tasks/update
:scheme: https
accept: application/json
accept-encoding: gzip, deflate, br
accept-language: en-US,en;q=0.9
authtoken: MMPIUq9bM8zRUFDWzc7XMMGt8jix38q9
content-length: 104
content-type: application/json
origin: http://localhost:4200

Request Payload :

[{"taskid":"837","message":"stories","priority":"2","assigned_to":"1","due_date":"2020-11-08 12:12:12"}]

Response : {"status":"error","error":"Please provide a task id"}

As per the response , it asks me for a task id , but it is already provided in the payload section.

You need to talk to the provider of the API to see why it does not accept the taskid value.

Hi Richard,

The same request is working fine in postman but not working while calling the api from code.

Below is the documentation for the update api.

POST Update Tasks


BODY formdata

message Do xxx something dasasa
due_date 2020-09-19 12:12:12

priority 2
optional (1: normal, 2: mid, 3: high)

assigned_to 1

taskid 1

But that does not explain the format that the data must be sent in. You still need to find out why the taskid that you are sending is not being recognised by the API. It is not something that anyone here can guess.

What's the method signature of the api you're calling? Your passing an array of data rather than a single item so it might be that, without knowing how the method is defined it's impossible to say what the problem might be.

Below is the method for api :

updateTask(data) {
return + '/update', JSON.stringify(data),{
headers: new HttpHeaders({
"content-type": 'application/json',
"accept": 'application/json'

Method for calling the api :

updateTask() {
this.updateObject['taskid'] = this.filteredObject['id'];
this.updateObject['message'] = this.filteredObject['message'];
this.updateObject['due_date'] = this.filteredObject['due_date'];
this.updateObject['priority'] = this.filteredObject['priority'];
this.updateObject['assigned_to'] = this.filteredObject['assigned_to'];'spinner1');
var data = [];

The api accepts formdata as input in the body section and apikey in headers.
