Azure Logic Apps: 405 – Method Not Supported Errors from HttpListener
This one starts with a joke:
A gentleman walks up to a wall and starts banging his head against it. Hard. In fact, he bangs his head so hard, that people around grow concerned and one person says to him, “Sir, why do you keep banging your head against the wall?” He replies, “Because it feels so good when I stop.”
So, like the gentleman in the above joke, I’ve been (figuratively) banging my head against the wall while trying to figure out how to invoke a Logic App I have deployed to the Azure cloud via an HttpListener.
I was using a
PostAsync() call on the
HttpClient to invoke the listener, but kept getting a
405 - Method Not Supported exception from the service. I was pretty sure POST should have been allowed! After checking the address, double-checking all the configurations, and so forth I couldn’t figure out why I would get the response I got (hence, the figurative banging of my head against a wall).
As is often the case, I found the answer in a post on an MSDN forum. When I copied the URL from the API definition of my HttpListener in Azure, it began with
http instead of
https, which was required. A simple mistake and easy to miss.
After making the URL correction, adding an “s” to
http, my calls to the service worked just fine.
And it feels really good now that I’ve stopped banging my head against the wall.
