To pass a raw JSON body as a parameter in PHP, you can use the file_get_contents() function to read the raw JSON string from the request body, and then use json_decode() to convert it into a PHP object or array.


Here is an example of how you can do this:

 1

// Get the raw JSON body from the request
$jsonBody = file_get_contents('php://input');

// Decode the JSON string into a PHP object or array
$data = json_decode($jsonBody);

// Access the values in the JSON data
$value1 = $data->property1;
$value2 = $data->property2;
// ...


In this example, the file_get_contents() function is used to read the raw JSON string from the request body, regardless of the HTTP method (POST, PUT, PATCH, etc.). Then, the json_decode() function is used to convert the JSON string into a PHP object or array.


You can then access the values in the JSON data by treating the resulting PHP object or array like any other PHP object or array.
