Allow HTTP requests using the POST method. By default, GET, HEAD, and OPTIONS requests are allowed, and POST requests are denied with 403 error. All other methods result in a 501 error. See also the allow​_delete, allow​_options, allow​_patch, and allow​_put behaviors.


Allows POST requests.


By default, POST requests also require a Content-Length header, or they result in a 411 error. With this option enabled with no specified Content-Length, the edge server relies on a Transfer-Encoding header to chunk the data. If neither header is present, it assumes the request has no body, and it adds a header with a 0 value to the forward request.
