> Traffic Ops ORT Fails with Chunked Encoding

>          Components: Traffic Ops ORT

> ORT fails if no 'Content-Length' header exists.
> Content-Length MAY be omitted per HTTP/1.1 RFC 7230, and in fact MUST NOT be 
> included with a 'Transfer-Encoding: Chunked' header, which MUST be accepted 
> by clients.
> So far, we've just been lucky Perl/Mojolicious Traffic Ops doesn't happen to 
> send Chunked encodings to ORT. But the spec requires clients accept it, ORT 
> is in violation of HTTP/1.1. 
> Further, the upcoming Golang Traffic Ops sends Chunked encoding, and there's 
> no reasonable way in Go to prevent it. There's no HTTP-compliant way to 
> instruct the server not to send Chunked encoding either, since clients are 
> required to accept it. The right solution here is to fix ORT to accept 
> Chunked encoding, without Content-Length.
> It appears ORT only refuses it as a safety check, and doesn't actually need 
> it for anything. Should be a simple fix.
