Create "Encoded" POST - Help

  • 9 December 2021

I am unable to POST "encoded".

I put under "content-type" head "application/x-www-form-urlencoded"

I dont think this converts the JAVA to "encoded" before posting.

I want to Post my Zap  but sending the data "encoded"

I look at this URL but could not follow along :( """

I appreciate any help! I think the use of the header is incorrect as it doesnt seem to be converting the Java to encoded!

HI @Troy Tessalone 


Thank you for the reply! I did inquire with “help” and they mentioned I should try here.


Please see my screen shots - I will not that I was not able to properly follow any help guides so I think my use of the header is wrong since my posts have not been sent “encoded”.



I have attached two screen shots, one of the JAVA (untouched) and one where I included the header addition.

Thank you so much once again!!
