I am attempting to resolve an issue WCF Rest Service and I am able to step through debug in one way:

I am able to step-through by calling on the URL specifying the method on the URL:

        [WebInvoke(Method = "GET", UriTemplate = "/GetMember/{strTest}", RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
        string GetMember(string strTest);

But what I really needed is more like an object in the RequestBody. So, I originally had:

        [WebInvoke(Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "/GetMember",  RequestFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json)]
        GetTestMemberRes GetMember(GetTestMemberReq TestMemberReq);

I am getting this:
Results of test
And it does not even hit the breakpoint.

When I do the first operation contract I had to change the signature of the method. But when I do that and use the GET as well as update the URITemplate it works and I hit the break point but when I change it to a POST and use the object GetTestMemberReq. I get the above?

If the first one is working my config changes should be good.

I am using C#, .NET 4.0, and VS 2017.

Any information as to what I might be doing incorrectly.

Very much appreciated.
