ANGULAR INTERVIEW QUESTION: How to define headers for all requests sent by Angular?

· angular,ngInterview

Angular has an HTTP 'interceptor' mechanism.

An HTTP interceptor allows you to catch all the HTTP responses going through your app, and to apply a behavior on it.

This is useful when you want to add the same header to all your output requests or when you want to intercept the server responses in error.

A classical use-case is to add an authorization header to all secure request to your application, or to add the header 'Content-Type" : 'application/json'.
