Set custom header for Post requests?


#1

Hello,

I need some kind of an autorization for my *_to_remote functions in my
application. For example one of the *_to_remote function calls
“/pages/welcome” and the page should be updated via page.replace_html or
something like that.
The thing is that I don’t want users to see that page when they type
domain.com/pages/welcome into their browser.
My idea was to add a custom header field which is added every time when
my applications sends an *_to_remote request.

Does anyone know how I could do that? Doesn’t necessarily need to be
solved by adding a custom header field. Any suggestions are highly
appreciated :slight_smile:

There already is one :slight_smile: The X-Requested-With header gets set ( and
the xhr? method in your controller will test for that for you)
