My website has a chatbot on it. This bot is attempting to do a POST request to the google custom search tool. I have a custom search page set up already.

When I make the POST request, I receive a 405 error. Does Google allow POST requests to the custom search tool?

I am doing a POST from Manychat if that changes anything.

  • What is a "push request"? I know about "push notifications", but I can't think of a scenario in which "push" would be appropriate far a custom search. Maybe you actually mean a POST request? Apr 12, 2019 at 22:26
  • You are correct its a Post request I am attempting to fill the search field with text entered into the chatbot.
