AJAX setRequestHeader not adding header for soapaction

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: anonymous
Priority: undecided Milestone: None
Component: unfiled Version: 1.8.3

Blocked by: Blocking:

When executing a $.ajax call a custom header of "soapaction" does not get added to the HTTP Header in the request, however when I override the existing "Accept-Language" header, the overridden value is displayed. I've also tested this with version 1.7.1 with the same result.

Browsers tested: Firefox 17.0.1, Chrome 23.0.1271.101

Code with failure to add header:

beforeSend: function(xhr) {



Code with a successfully augmented header:

beforeSend: function(xhr) {

xhr.setRequestHeader("Accept-Language", "en-US");

Please provide a test case in jsfiddle, you can start with this:

In that example I can see it clearly setting the header when I use the Network tab.

Please close this ticket, the root cause was found and it is outside JQuery.
