Marvel Sense GET vs get


Sense seems to send a wrong request with lowercase get. E.g.:

get myindex/doc/_search
"query": {
"term": {
"tags": "elastic"

returns all documents even though there is no tag "elastic". The browser
(Chrome) sends the following request:

GET http:

Upper case GET works. Chrome sends a POST request with the query in the

POST http://localhost:9200/myindex/doc/_search

and the response is no documents found as expected.

It's true that Sense marks the lowercase "get" as wrong and suggests
alternatives but the problem is that the lowercase get does work in many
cases (when there's no body) but not in all of them which makes it
confusing. I am not the only one who got stuck on this a bit recently.
