useFetchClient POST request no data

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.14:
  • Operating System: Macos Monterey:
  • Database: Postgresql:
  • Node Version: v20:

So basically i am trying to create a custom plugin. i use useFetchClient(). get function works ok, but when i do a POST request, i can’t get the data to be sent via req, as you can see from the screenshot.

Hi Sergi,

I get the same result like you, do you have a solution found?


I think i managed to make it work using the older hook getFetchClient or axios. Anyway somehow after hours of testing, they both worked. Maybe check your version

Yeah I would double check your Strapi version. I used getFetchClient and it worked. Here is an example file for reference just in case.

Have the same issue on v4.14.6.
I send data with:

const res = await'/gfw-custom-fields/upload-asset', {
  data: {
    foo: 'BAR',

But on the server side ctx.request.body is undefined

Just tested it with getFetchClient instead of useFetchClient and there the post body is available on the request.

Hello there,

I can use both now. getFetchClient is marked as deprecated, so it will be removed in the near future. So here my solution that works:

In my Homepage (src/plugin/admin/src/pages):

import { useFetchClient } from '@strapi/helper-plugin';
import pluginId from '../../pluginId';

const HomePage = () => {
  const { get, post } = useFetchClient();


  const testSQLJob = () => {
    let kindOfTest = modus ? "findOne" : "findMany";

    const testJob = post("/sqljob/test-job", { data: {
        entity: value,
        modus: kindOfTest,
        json_content: content
    }).then((response) => {
      console.log("TestJob: ",;

The route (src/plugin/server/routes):

        method: 'POST',
        path: '/test-job',
        handler: 'myController.testJob',
        config: {
          policies: [],

The controller (src/plugin/server/controllers):

async testJob(ctx) {
    ctx.body = await strapi

In the service (src/plugin/server/services)I return just a findMany - Result, for instance:

let response = await strapi.entityService.findMany(data.entity, json_object);


return response;

Thank you all!
