Hi all,

I'm a frustrated newbie trying to integrate a number of systems via webhook. My current problem: POST bodys with placeholders for integers which are not necessarily delivered. Meaning: get errornous POST calls, e.g. "importantNumer": , --> so without any value at all. Thhe receiving system cannot handle this.

Now I stumbled upon something called omitempty, which seems to work with stringss (e.g. "userName": "{{name}}, omitempty". Can anyone tell me if this works for integers too? And if so? What would the right syntax be? I'm in dire need of help. And sleep :-).

I would post this to stackoverflow.com with more detail about the payloads (including full examples).

If you need to capture some requests to show others use requestb.in or Runscope
