get(path, parameters = nil, headers = nil) public

Performs a GET request with the given parameters.

  • path: The URI (as a String) on which you want to perform a GET request.
  • parameters: The HTTP parameters that you want to pass. This may be nil, a Hash, or a String that is appropriately encoded (application/x-www-form-urlencoded or multipart/form-data).
  • headers: Additional HTTP headers to pass, as a Hash. The keys will automatically be upcased, with the prefix ‘HTTP_’ added if needed.

This method returns an Response object, which one can use to inspect the details of the response. Furthermore, if this method was called from an ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest object, then that object’s @response instance variable will point to the same response object.

You can also perform POST, PUT, DELETE, and HEAD requests with post, put, delete, and head.

Specifying an accept header in your tests

To specify an accept header, you need to pass it in the second hash like this:

get '/url', nil, {'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'application/json'}

The documentation says everything is uppercased and HTTP_ is appended when necessary, but that wasn’t working for me.
