Today (June 19) Apilio only accepts GET requests from IFTTT and other services. Certain customers would appreciate the ability to send POST requests to Apilio.

A word on the HTTP method: Yes, currently you have to use GET. I know that this is not quite correct from a purist RESTful interpretation - actually, it should be implemented as PATCH method (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5789). I chose GET to simplify the setup process for non-technical users (because GET might sound familiar to most).

In my opinion this is a very interesting request!!

But i think that the more important reason is the security… With the GET resquest, any person in the middle of the communication can see the request and can execute it later…

I think only accept GET resquest is a big security problem…
If apilio accepts POST request, the key can pass in the body and over a HTTPS connection the data can’t be view for a middle person.

I understand that the GET option is available to facilitate configuration, but I believe that the POST option should be given to ensure a minimum of security.

Thanks for your excellent work with apilio!!
