Webhook POST messages have an empty body


I have an OnDemand Jira account and I am trying to use the webhooks functionality on it. Problem is that it does not seem to work properly. POST messages are sent to my URL, but they are being sent with an empty body. The "Exclude details" option from my webhook config is unchecked so the problem doesn't seem to be configuration related.

The strange thing is that even if the body of the message is empty, the Content-Legth header is different from 0 (usually above 3000). If I go to the webhook configuration and check the "Exclude details" option, messages will come with an empty body (as they should) and also with "Content-Length: 0".

Does anybody have any idea what might trigger the problem and how can I make the webhooks properly include details in the body of the POST message?

Best regards

It turned out that the problem was not related to the Jira web hooks engine, but rather by some network related problems in the LAN of the machine that was hosting my webhooks client.
