HTTP Question

What is invalid about this header: Accept: */*; q=0.5; application/json

My app makes a post to an aspnetcore controller.

It is throwing this error message:

FormatException: "Invalid values '*/*; q=0.5; application/json'."


I don't see what is wrong with it.

This is the raw post:

POST /api/attachments/save HTTP/1.1
Host: localhost:4000
Connection: keep-alive
Content-Length: 130897
Pragma: no-cache
Cache-Control: no-cache

Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.8
Cookie: ai_user=7qQV6|2016-06-29T23:52:02.982Z


How do I resolve this?

Answer

You should use , instead of ; before application/json:

Accept: */*; q=0.5, application/json

Syntax and semantics of standard HTTP/1.1 header fields are described in Header Field Definitions
