The default API Gateway setup don't include the raw body of a POST

See original GitHub issue
  • Expected behaviour:

It should be possible to use claudiajs (and caudia-api-builder) to deploy lambdas that expects the raw body of a POST request in a parameter.

  • Use case:

An use case for this is the signature verification on a Facebook Messenger Bot for example, that sends a signature for the raw body + a secret in the header (see )

  • What actually happens:

The Body Mapping Template used by claudia is the one at that does not include the raw body, and the CLI don’t have an option to override that template with a different one.

  • Workaround

Either manually add the patch on the body mapping template at AWS website:

  "rawBody": "$util.escapeJavaScript($input.body).replace("\'", "'")",

Or patch the apigw-params.txt manually.

I wouldn’t count on just facebook needing this, so adding rawBody for application/json in general would be my preferred option.

I’ve copy/pasted the previous test, hope it’s ok 😛
