Hi @SA30,

 

Usually, this happens automatically when the data the analytics network call is trying to capture exceeds 2047 bytes size. It turns from a GET method call to a POST method.

 

The two calls tou are getting, one GET and one POST, have a look at the data being captured. GET call would have much lesser data being captured through it. As for which one would reflect, look at the status of the network call, if both are 200 then both network call data will reflect. You might need to look into why you are getting two calls.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Cheers,

Yes, this is it. When your requests get large, they switch to Post method to ensure that data truncation doesn't occur. This is normal behaviour.
