Parasoft BUG - requestBody correlation for x-www-form-urlencoded POST requests

I came across a problem while trying to correlate or return the requestBody of a POST request x-www-form-urlencoded. Parasoft sees/returns an empty requestBody.
It would work for all request types (GET/PUT/DELETE) but not for POST, is this a bug?
Can confirm that it works for other requestBody types, raw/json/etc.

    Can you clarify what you mean by "correlate or return the requestBody of a POST x-www-form-urlencoded"? Are you using a REST Client in SOAtest? If so, what configuration are you trying to make to the REST Client? It's not clear to me exactly what you are trying to set up.

    Apologies, first time posting here and it shouldn't be posted in SOATest I guess.

    I created a virtual asset in Parasoft Virtualize and I am trying to correlate the response based on a parameter in the request body.

    I am using Postman to test the virtual asset.

    The problem is that the Virtual Asset sees the request body empty when it receives a POST request x-www-form-urlencoded.

    Use a correlation on "URL Parameters" the request body of form-urlencoded is treated as parameters by tomcat and other containers so for Virtualize you correlate on them the same way you would for any normal query parameter.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi William,

    Thank you for your reply, I have tried to correlate on "URL Parameters" matching on the body parameters from request when sending the request type POST and request body x-www-form-urlencoded and the correlation still fails.

    Apologies, tried again and it worked.
    Huge thanks!
