So, I went through a lot of hell trying to figure out why the f-word my messages weren't showing. Guess what? Apparently, the are now disabled by default! 😑
Apparently, the default value for server.error.include-message is "never".
So, I went into my code (application.properties) and had to do the following:
server.servlet.context-path=/api/v1 server.error.include-message=always server.error.include-binding-errors=always
What's that? It's non-standard, you say?
Well, get off my back! It works, doesn't it?
In case someone is having the same issue and like me they're wondering wtf is going on, this should be able to help.
