You can use a WSGI middleware filter that grabs the request body and
stores it in the WSGI environment before zope consumes it.

Here's a code example:

from webob import Request

class StashPostBody(object):
    """middleware to stash the post body in the WSGI environment"""
    def __init__(self, app): = app

    def __call__(self, environ, start_response):
        req = Request(environ)
        # filter more here, if desired
        need_body = req.method == 'POST'
        if need_body:
            req.environ['spb.req_body'] = req.body
        resp = req.get_response(
        return resp(environ, start_response)
def filter_factory(global_conf):
    def filter(application):
        return StashPostBody(application)
    return filter

Once this is configured in the pastescript .ini file as a filter, you
can get the original request body from zope's request object as
