Running 5.6.9. I'm trying to create an HTTP task that POSTS two parameters to
a website. The website is receiving the URL, but the parameters have been lost.

What am I doing wrong?

There is a difference between POST and GET. POST parameters are not visible (in log for example).

But if they are not visible in your script then you are probably using the wrong method in your script to retrieve the parameters. Normally you cannot retrieve parameters for POST the same way as GET.

The script works perfectly when I use the following HTML:

<form method="post" action="SystemHealth.asp">
<h3>Test System Health</h3>
Text for System Health Message:<br><br>
<textarea name="Message" type=text style="width:400px;height:200px;"></textarea><br><br>
<input type="submit" value="Submit" />
</form>

And I'm definitely retrieving all the POST variables on the other end.

Maybe it works better if you use a capital m: Message= instead of message=

I already tried that. On the script side, I'm actually printing out the entire contents of the request.form,
which is why I know that it's not passing the parameters at all.

Is it possible to test it from here? Also, can you supply some server code where you show how you pickup the value?

Sure, here's the relevant code:

for each item in request.form
message=message & "Item name: " & item & "Item value: " & request.form(item)
next

When I run my code above, I get the appropriate item.
When I run the HTTP task, the message variable comes out completely empty.

Try skipping the loop:

request.form("Message")

Solution found:

The domain name was forwarding to another domain name and was not passing the POST variables. How subtle is that?

Thanks for your help.

Great that you found it as that is a cause that is explainable.
