  1. Using this tutorial, I am seeing that my images files are correctly coming through in the request body within an array “images” (created on front end with each file from the file input’s filelist). However, Multer is returning an empty array for within req.files

  2. You must remove the “Content-Type” header or else the request fails with a 500. And you have to have the response body without a comma at the end:
    method: ‘POST’,
    body: formData
