How to disable params parsing ?

Hi,

I'm writing a service that receives XML posted data. By default
action_controller/params_parser.rb seems to try to parse the whole
thing to translate that into the params hash.

Is there a simple way to disable this parsing so that I can just store
the data on the disk without any check to occur ?

One suggestion is to use Metal:

But maybe there is a more simple way (like some kind of
configuration, :params_parse => false or something ?)

any idea?

cheers,

Thibaut

Bumping this up - anyone knows how to disable params parsing ?

If you can somehow convince rails that the format it is receiving
(perhaps via fiddling with routes?) isn't a format it knows how to
parse then it won't parse it.

I've been reading about that somewhere but at the end the guy didn't
manage to achieve the goal.

Finally I used Rails Metal and it works :slight_smile:

Yeah, it looks like that might not work any more - it's the content
type that you'd have to mess with.

If you'll never need to parse xml requests anywhere you could set the
relevant entry in ActionController::Base.param_parsers to nil

thanks for the hint - it the application grows, I’ll definitely try that :slight_smile:
