Phoenix v1.4.0 Phoenix.MissingParamError exception View Source

Raised when a key is expected to be present in the request parameters, but is not.

This exception is raised by Phoenix.Controller.scrub_params/2 which:

  • Checks to see if the required_key is present (can be empty)
  • Changes all empty parameters to nils (“” -> nil)

If you are seeing this error, you should handle the error and surface it to the end user. It means that there is a parameter missing from the request.
