I created a Geoprocessing Service that creates a new user on my portal. However, one of the parameters is the password the user would like to use. My server enforces https and so does my web application; however, when consuming the GP service via the ESRI Javascript API's execute or submitJob functions, the request is submitted via GET rather than POST.

My question: Is there a way to enforce POST using the API? If not, am I able to consume the GP service via an ajax POST request?

Best, Tyler

I figured it out. Here is my AngularJS implementation.

// dependancy injection: $q, $http, $httpParamSerializer

function portalSignup() {

    var deferred = $q.defer();

    var requestConfig = {
        method: 'POST',
        url: 'https://<path to server>/<server name>/rest/services/<path to service>/execute',
        headers: {
            'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
        },
        transformRequest: $httpParamSerializer,
        data: {
            f: 'json',
            Username: 'First.Name',
            Password: 'ValidPassword',
            FullName: 'First Last',
            Email: 'first.last@subdomain.domain.com'
        }
    };

    $http(requestConfig)
        .success(function (response) {

            console.log('Success: Portal Created User:', response);
            deferred.resolve(response);

        }).error(function (err) {

            console.log('Error: Portal Failed to Create User', err);
            deferred.reject(err);

        });

    return deferred.promise;

}
