REST Data Source POST Operation

Good morning APEX community. I am attempting to utilize the REST Data Source feature capabilities to retrieve data from a 3rd party API. The API specification requires the POST method with request body JSON object with dynamic values. I am able to produce the desired response from POSTman, and am looking to understand how to translate that into the REST Data Source configuration.

POSTman Screenshot:

Test Results (Response Body). Note the empty "payload" array:

Any help in understanding the proper way to configure this type of REST Data Source would be greatly appreciated. We are running APEX 20.2 and ORDS 20.4 deployed to a Tomcat server, connected to a 12.1.02 database.

    Following up. After some continued tweaking I was able to successfully produce the desired results. I was missing the Content-Type request header parameter set to 'application/json'.
