Sending Request Body can be other than JSON in API Gateway in AWS

Can you accept a form request e.g. the classic application/x-www-form-urlencoded body content type. Answer is yes.

You could even use application/xml or any other format from your request but you have to tweak some settings.

Default mapping template in response:
{
    "body" : $input.json('$')
}

Now, if you send a typical application/JSON body…

{
    "foo": "bar"
}

you’ll get is a JSON object under the body key:

{
    "body" : {
       "foo": "bar"
    }
}


Now if you send a different format, say some XML you’ll receive the body key as a string:

{
    "body" : "my request body"
}

However, if you do so then you need your lambda to do the parsing further.

And Ah! ofcourse you need to redeploy your Api gateway after above changes.

Cheers :)
