#form_data?Boolean

Determine whether the request body contains form-data by checking the request Content-Type for one of the media-types: “application/x-www-form-urlencoded” or “multipart/form-data”. The list of form-data media types can be modified through the FORM_DATA_MEDIA_TYPES array.

A request body is not assumed to contain form-data when no Content-Type header is provided and the request_method is POST.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

#request_idObject Also known as: uuid

Returns the unique request id, which is based on either the X-Request-Id header that can be generated by a firewall, load balancer, or web server or by the RequestId middleware (which sets the action_dispatch.request_id environment variable).

This unique ID is useful for tracing a request from end-to-end as part of logging or debugging. This relies on the Rack variable set by the ActionDispatch::RequestId middleware.

Returns the HTTP method that the application should see.

#send_early_hints(links) ⇒ Object

Early Hints is an HTTP/2 status code that indicates hints to help a client start making preparations for processing the final response.

If the env contains rack.early_hints then the server accepts HTTP2 push for Link headers.

The send_early_hints method accepts a hash of links as follows:

send_early_hints("Link" => "</style.css>; rel=preload; as=style\n</script.js>; rel=preload")

If you are using javascript_include_tag or stylesheet_link_tag the Early Hints headers are included by default if supported.
