HTTP REPORT is a registered HTTP method defined in RFC 3253, Section 3.6. This gem adds the Net::HTTP::Report class that can be used to build REPORT requests for use with the net/http standard library.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'net-http-report'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install net-http-report


The Net::HTTP::Report method behaves similarly to other Net::HTTPRequest classes in the net/http library. Here's an example of sending a REPORT request with a JSON payload and printing out the response body.

require 'net-http-report'
require 'json'

uri = URI('')

Net::HTTP.start(, uri.port) do |http|
  request =
  request['Content-Type'] = 'application/json'
  request.body = { 'ids' => [1, 2, 3] }.to_json

  response = http.request(request)
  puts response.body
