I have a task to create products programmatically using the JSON data.

I created a new module to make a custom controller. Then I hit the url using the http requester add on through Mozilla browser, and submitted the JSON data by POST method. But it does not fetch the submitted data.

If I am able to submit the JSON data through http requester to my controller, then I will be able to create the products using the same.

My controller code is updated here

class Probytes_Productcreate_IndexController extends Mage_Core_Controller_Front_Action {        

   public function indexAction() {

    $params = $this->getRequest()->getPost('test');
    echo $params;


Is there any solution to sumbit a JSON data to the custom controller in magento. I am using magento version 1.9. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

As Per discussion for http requester plug-in

Use Content Type application/x-www-form-urlencoded and use content as your JSON Data

  • No need for the Content Type as application/x-www-form-urlencoded. As per your suggestion during the discussion $this->getRequest()->getRawBody() did the magic for me. – SIBHI S Mar 23 '16 at 4:53
