Hello Folks,

I have captured HTTP2 packets and decoded it as HTTP2. While my DATA payload is application/json form , how i can view it in application/json format.

Looks like it is due to compression. If i run and capture single http2 then i can see payload in json format, if i run it in bulk request i am not able to see it in json format

Kindly help

Can you share an example pcap?
If you follow the TCP stream, does the last packet show the Reassembled body?

I have the same issue - and as far as I see, tshark not decoding the data is because the pcap does not include the connection setup. Would appreciate support as well in finding a solution.

Thanks, Octavian.

Hi, In the development version you can use "decode as" and select JSON which workls in some cases but I think code changes are needed. I have suggested these changes to the support library used to decode http2
