search access via url lead to Unexpected error, the data has not been correctly POSTed.


New member
Dear Forum,

I try to use the prepared link from the search form to access directly a predefined search:
the search works well, when it is done via the search tool
e.g. this link is prepared by the search tool

when I use the link I get a result page with
Unexpected error, the data has not been correctly POSTed.
I checked all parameters - when I am removing execute_search_url=1 then I won't get the failure message, however also the search is not executed.

Thanks a lot for your help.

Best regards,

you are right, that's a bug related to URL-based search introduced in V 11.4, thanks for having submitted it.

It will be fixed in the next version, temporary workaround: set the config parameter $check_search_post_for_data to 0 and your URL searches will start working, the drawback is that DaDaBIK won't check the data coming from the search forms to detect possible problems due to a huge amount of data posted.
