AngularJS Question

Symfony 3(FOSrestBundle) + Angular 1 POST request is empty

Here is my Angular service :

restFactory.getCalcPrice = function (data) {
return $http({
url:"/api/calc",
method:"POST",
data:{"data": data},
headers: {'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'}
})
};


FOSRestBundle config:

fos_rest:
param_fetcher_listener: true
body_listener: true
body_converter:
enabled: true
routing_loader:
default_format: json
view:
view_response_listener: 'force'
mime_types:
json: ['application/json', 'application/json;version=1.0', 'application/json;version=1.1']
format_listener:
rules:
- { path: ^/api, priorities: [ json ], fallback_format: json, prefer_extension: true }
- { path: ^/, priorities: [ 'html', '*/*'], fallback_format: ~, prefer_extension: true }


And Symfony 3 contoller:

/**
* @Post("/calc")
* @View()
* @return array
*/
public function getCalcPrice(Request $request)
{
$req = $request->request->all();
$data = $req['data'];
$data = array(
"data" => $data // in Angular recieving null
);

return $data;
}


So the problem is when I posting some data from Angular I can't get it in Symfony. GET request working fine. Any suggestions? :)

Answer

According to the API doc for Request class property $request->request gives you access to all $_POST params but you're sending your data as JSON in payload:

So you should call method getContent() and decode it manually:

$content = $request->getContent();
$json = json_decode($content, true);
$data = $json['data'];
