By default, Horizon 7 accepts requests with the following declared content types only:

  • application/x-www-form-urlencoded

  • application/xml

  • text/xml


In earlier releases, this protection was disabled by default.

To restrict the content types that View accepts, add the following entry to the file


For example:


To accept another content type, add the entry acceptContentType.2=content-type, and so on

To accept requests with any declared content type, specify acceptContentType=*.


In releases earlier than Horizon 7 version 7.2, changing this list does not affect connections to Horizon Administrator.
