My Next.js (with the app router) fails to send body data in a POST request back to my Express API. Postman is successfully able to submit data, but Next.js fails to pass data through. The screenshot is the API route that is being called-- you can see that data from my client form to the Next.js API is sent, but my backend fails to receive the data. Is there something wrong with my code (such as my headers) that prevents data from being passed through?

@The ORM Hopper thanks! however I plan to send some base64 data through, hence why I utilized multipart/form-data. would that still be fine in an application/json setting?

right now you're doing request.json() which returns a json string so you need application/json
