Troubleshooting "Invalid JSON data" Error in Django Application with AJAX Form Submission

Completed Posted 3 months ago Paid on delivery
Completed Paid on delivery

I'm currently developing a web application using Django and Bootstrap, with AJAX functionality to submit forms. My application involves submitting form data to an external API, but I'm encountering a persistent "Invalid JSON data" error when attempting to make POST requests.

I am seeking a skilled web developer to troubleshoot and resolve an issue with an AJAX form submission in a Django web application. The form is intended to submit data as a JSON payload to a Django view, which then sends the data to an external API. However, the form data is currently being submitted as application/x-www-form-urlencoded instead of application/json, despite the correct headers being set.

Scope of Work:

Review the existing AJAX form submission code.

Identify and resolve the issue preventing the JSON format submission.

Ensure the form data is sent as a properly formatted JSON string to the Django backend.

Test the form submission to confirm that the backend receives the JSON payload correctly.


Expertise in JavaScript, AJAX, and the Django framework.

Experience with form submission and handling JSON data.

Ability to diagnose and fix the issue within 1-2 hours of work.

To Be Provided:

Access to the relevant sections of the codebase, including [login to view URL], template files with the form and JavaScript, and any related configuration files.

API documentation for reference (e.g., [login to view URL]).

Test API keys for the external API (with sensitive information redacted).


A corrected form submission process that consistently sends data as JSON to the Django backend.

A brief explanation of the changes made for future reference.

Note: You do not need to handle the API response logic; the task is solely focused on ensuring the JSON payload is correctly sent from the frontend to the Django backend.
