Send Request Body on $resource

I take a look on Angular API for $resource and I didn’t find some way to send a Request Body to a RESTful service.

I know this is possible using $http approach, like here, so, is it also possible to do using $resource?

Apparently this is the options for $resource.

action – {string} – The name of action. This name becomes the name of the method on your resource object.

method – {string} – HTTP request
method. Valid methods are: GET, POST, PUT, DELETE, and JSONP

{object=} – Optional set of pre-bound parameters for this action.

isArray – {boolean=} – If true then the returned object for this
action is an array, see returns section.

At the moment I didn’t found any way to send a request payload containing an JSON object.

Solution 1

Building on @gargc‘s answer, you can pass parameters and a body to a resource’s method:{ param: myParam }, myObject);

Solution 2

As long as the action supports a body message (e.g. POST, but not GET), you can pass a data parameter to the action method of your resource, which will be sent in the body of the request:


Note: Use and implement solution 1 because this method fully tested our system.
