Getting JSON post request body in App Platform serverless Go function

I have an App Platform instance with serverless Go functions as below

type Request struct {
	JWT string `json:"jwt"`

type Response struct {
	StatusCode int               `json:"statusCode,omitempty"`
	Headers    map[string]string `json:"headers,omitempty"`
	Body       string            `json:"body,omitempty"`

func Login(in Request) (*Response, error) {

the Request type seems to only be URL parameters when I try to use it.

Is there any way to get the body of the post request or headers?

Turns out I was just missing and https:// in my request call. I was hitting instead of as soon as I added the protocol it worked.

Thanks to Bobby Iliev for the assist.

Hi there,

At a first glance this looks correct, if you try to print out in.JWT do you get any value back?

Here is a sample Golang function that accepts different parameters wich might be helpful:
