DataScript: avi.http.get_req_body

Function avi.http.get_req_body([size_in_kb])
Description Returns the client request body. If no data exists within the request body — for example, if the request is not a POST — the function will return nil.

Notes
1. Enable `request_body_buffering` (via the Application Profile under the DDOS tab or in the Avi CLI).
2. Buffer size is specified in `client_max_body_size` but is limited to 32 MB maximum.
3. The default for `client_max_body_size` is 0, which is interpreted as unlimited, but limited to 32 MB.
4. To set `client_max_body_size`, use `http_profile` CLI command.
