Plug.Parsers.JSON (Plug v1.12.0) View Source
Parses JSON request body.
JSON documents that aren't maps (arrays, strings, numbers, etc) are parsed
"_json" key to allow proper param merging.
An empty request body is parsed as an empty map.
All options supported by
Plug.Conn.read_body/2 are also supported here.
They are repeated here for convenience:
:length- sets the maximum number of bytes to read from the request, defaults to 8_000_000 bytes
:read_length- sets the amount of bytes to read at one time from the underlying socket to fill the chunk, defaults to 1_000_000 bytes
:read_timeout- sets the timeout for each socket read, defaults to 15_000ms
So by default,
Plug.Parsers will read 1_000_000 bytes at a time from the
socket with an overall limit of 8_000_000 bytes.
