Answered
Felix Tan asked on May 10, 2021

Hi,
 
May i know how can we get the filedata that passed to remote server? 
Im using exportTo with destinationType server.
What i received in $_POST on server side is just an empty array.
What is the right way to do to handling the data and save the file? Thank you.

Hi,
 
Thank you for your answer.
 
I have a additional question on this. Is it possible to add an additional POST parameter which send together with filedata to server? 
 
If possible, an example is very appreciated. Thank you

Hi Felix,
 
Thank you for your swift response.
 
You can use the requestHeaders parameter of the exportTo() API call to pass custom headers during export:
 

flexmonster.exportTo('csv', {
destinationType: 'server',
url: 'serverUrl',
requestHeaders: {
'myHeader': "myValue"
}
});

 
Hope you find this helpful!
 
Regards,
