POSTMAN troubleshooting the issue of PUT's 301 Redirect

Hi EE,

I just installed POSTMAN on one of our Jump Servers (Windows Server 2012 R2), whenever I send a POST request my request is redirected as a GET request, with a 301 redirect message. I tried disabling redirects via the Settings > Automatically Follow Redirects but that gave me a similar error 301 Moved Permanently. 

I believe the issue is server-side any ideas on how I would troubleshoot this?

Below is the information from the POSTMAN console 'host' and 'location' data have been removed.

Request Headers
Authorization: Basic VTdjZmpOZHp4cTE4UzB3ZmkxVWJrRFlEeGtvOnc3NlhRNk4xbUxSa0EweDdUQmxTZHpXY0RuWW5yZXRFTXdQMVJ2akVzZjQ=

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi EE,

Worked out the issue, the API was rejecting the POST request because it wasn't encapsulated via HTTPS.

Thank you.
