Hi anton this is my post request created with retrofit

    @POST("/users")
    @Headers("Content-Type: application/json")
    @FormUrlEncoded
    fun createuser(
        @Field("name") name: String?,
        @Field("email") email: String?,
        @Field("password") password: String?
    ): Call<TraccarUser?>?

but i'm getting errors with every request i make , i make the same api calls to other api they work just fine. tried logging in to already created users it works fine .
Tried creating a device though api with the admin account and again the same problem
I guess there is a catch with the post request , Is there something in missing ? i checked the android traccar app git too . Still no help.

This part doesn't make sense to me:

    @Headers("Content-Type: application/json")
    @FormUrlEncoded

Are you sending JSON or form?

I'm sry i intend to send JSON to the api , can it also be done with a form by the way? or is sending JSON the correct way?

You can't use form. It has to be proper JSON. You can find some samples here:
