/!\ API calls - initial parameters applied when empty

This is in Tips, but it could be considered as a Bug @Bubble . Anyway, since I’ve encountered ths issue twice theses last two months, here a warning you may find out helpful.

In the API Connector, you definied your parameters with exemples like here :

Some of them may be optionals, or sometimes must be set empty in your request. If so, you may leave the fields empty in your api call :

Seems logic right ? “hls” is empty, so the request will be. “dash+hlsfmp4” is empty if the parameter is false

Actually, not. For both, parameters defined at first will be applied !

Values set in the API Connector or in the Plugin Bulider are not just some indications for the editor later on or some test values for initializing your request, there actually are the default parameters applied whenever another value is not set.

Response from @neerja :
You can type an empty space instead of leaving the parameter input empty to get the desired result.

Be sure the space does not break anyhting, especially if it is a URL parameter.
