Passing multiple POST request parameters C++ libcurl

  api, c++, curl, libcurl, spotify

Currently using the C++ implementation of libcurl to interact with the Spotify API, looking for a way to pass multiple ‘Request Body Parameters’ during a POST request. The fields required are:

Fields needed

Looking at the example of a POST request found in libcurl’s documentation, it seems that this line

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "name=daniel&project=curl");

passes two parameters: "name" and "project". When I try a similar format with Spotify’s API

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "grant_type=authorization_code&code=abcdef&redirect_uri=example.com");

I get the following error

{"error":"unsupported_grant_type","error_description":"grant_type parameter is missing"}

I’ve validated that CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS works for this case by passing only the "grant_type", because the API response tells me that my request is missing a code, so clearly the API is reading the POSTFIELDS argument. Does anyone have insight on how to include multiple parameters in a POST request?
