I would like to know if there is a way to retrieve an HTTP request method from the HTTP request headers. Based on the method used (GET, POST, ...) I will run a different logic on my Cloud Page.

If I look at the source of my request headers, the information is there, but it doesn't have any attribute that can be used in HTTPRequestHeader() or GetRequestHeader(). So, can I somehow retrieve the first line of the following header that tells me what request method has been used?

You're looking for Platform.Request.Method(), that's listed in the HTTP Properties Functions article.

Here's an example snippet that will extract most of the data you might need:

<script runat="server">
Platform.Load("core", "1");

var requestData = {
        Method: Platform.Request.Method(),
        Browser: Platform.Request.Browser(),
        UserAgent: Platform.Request.UserAgent(),
        ClientIP: Platform.Request.ClientIP(),
        HasSSL: Platform.Request.HasSSL(),
        IsSSL: Platform.Request.IsSSL(),
        QueryString: Platform.Request.QueryString(),
        ReferrerURL: Platform.Request.ReferrerURL(),
        RequestURL: Platform.Request.RequestURL(),
        UserAgent: Platform.Request.UserAgent(),
        Authorization: Platform.Request.GetRequestHeader('Authorization'),
        PostData: Platform.Request.GetPostData('utf-8')


For example a request from Postman will get something like this in response:

    "Method": "PATCH",
    "Browser": {
        "Platform": "Unknown",
        "Browser": "Unknown",
        "Version": "0.0",
        "MajorVersion": 0,
        "MinorVersion": 0
    "UserAgent": "PostmanRuntime/7.31.3",
    "ClientIP": "",
    "HasSSL": true,
    "IsSSL": true,
    "QueryString": "",
    "ReferrerURL": null,
    "RequestURL": "https://subdomain.yourdomain.com/your-page",
    "Authorization": "Basic SGVsbG86U0ZTdGFja0V4Y2hhbmdl",
    "PostData": "{\r\n    \"hello\": \"world\"\r\n}"

    The first code sample is missing Platform.Load("core", "1"); Commented May 8, 2023 at 15:15
  • @AdamSpriggs thanks for pointing that out - it was a strange omission on my part now that I look at it. I've added that line as you suggested Commented May 9, 2023 at 3:50
