[Solved] Send JWE, as request body, with Retrofit

Sparsh Dutta Asks: Send JWE, as request body, with Retrofit
I am using Retrofit to send request as encrypted JWT (JWE) to an API.

My service interface is:

interface APICallService {

    @Headers("Content-Type: application/jwt")
    fun getKycCompliantStatus(@Header("Authorization") accessToken:String,  kycStatusRequest: KycStatusRequest): Call<KycCompliantBaseResponse>


My KycStatusRequest class is:

data class KycStatusRequest(var encryptedJWT : String)

I am hitting the API with:

fun getEKycCompliantStatus(accessToken:String, pan:String) {
            var jwe = EncryptedJWTGenerator(pan).jweString //This JWE works fine with Postman
            val kycStatusRequest = KycStatusRequest(jwe)
            val call = getServiceInstance().getKycCompliantStatus("Bearer ${accessToken.trim()}", kycStatusRequest)
            call.enqueue(object : Callback<KycCompliantBaseResponse> {
                override fun onResponse(call: Call<KycCompliantBaseResponse>, response: Response<KycCompliantBaseResponse>) {
                    if (response.code() == 200) {
                        val kycResponse = response.body()!!
                        if (kycResponse.Response.F_PAN_STATUS.equals("ok", true))
                            isKycCompliant = true

                        else if (kycResponse.Response.F_PAN_STATUS.equals("invalid", true))
                            isKycCompliant = false


                        Toast.makeText(context,"Check kyc API failure!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()    

                override fun onFailure(call: Call<KycCompliantBaseResponse>, t: Throwable) {
                    Toast.makeText(context,"Check kyc API failure!", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show()

On using the above code I get 'Internal Server Error'. But on using the same jwe I used above with postman, API works fine.

I am suspecting that I am getting this error as I am wrapping my JWE in KycStatusRequest class before sending, which I think will convert it into a JSON with key-value pair.

How do I send my JWE as a raw text without any key-value pair?
