URLEncoding

public struct URLEncoding : ParameterEncoding

Creates a url-encoded query string to be set as or appended to any existing URL query string or set as the HTTP body of the URL request. Whether the query string is set or appended to any existing URL query string or set as the HTTP body depends on the destination of the encoding.

The Content-Type HTTP header field of an encoded request with HTTP body is set to application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8.

There is no published specification for how to encode collection types. By default the convention of appending [] to the key for array values (foo[]=1&foo[]=2), and appending the key surrounded by square brackets for nested dictionary values (foo[bar]=baz) is used. Optionally, ArrayEncoding can be used to omit the square brackets appended to array keys.

BoolEncoding can be used to configure how boolean values are encoded. The default behavior is to encode true as 1 and false as 0.

  • Defines whether the url-encoded query string is applied to the existing query string or HTTP body of the resulting URL request.
