What are some limitations of HttpGet?

  1. HttpGet action verb represents a retrieval operation from a resource, with optional arguments or filters.
  2. HttpGet can't be used to send large data to the server.
  3. All the data that is sent via HttpGet is attached to the resource URL which is of limited length (255 chars max)
  4. HttpGet should only be used to fetch data
  5. To send complex data over HttpGet we can use FromUrl decorator over the parameters in the controller action to which the request is being made.
