    @LuisDavidDelaCruz Thanks for reply , i started my first Web API Project that connected with Mysql DB using NuGet package, i tested the connection using GET method in controller and it's work, now how can i use POST method to insert data to my database ?
    the HTTP method is look like the following
    public void Post([FromBody]string value) { }
