Is this a security related issue?


What are you trying to achieve or the steps to reproduce?

When I listen on the response event, the request.response is always null. This happens in version 17.5.4, but not in 17.5.2.

const server = Hapi.server({
  port: 8080,

  method: 'GET',
  path: '/echo',
  handler: request => {
    return Object.keys(request);
});'response', request => {
  console.log( +
      ': ' +
      request.method.toUpperCase() +
      ' ' +
      request.url.path +
      ' --> ' +
      (request.response && request.response.statusCode) // request.response is always null
  if (request.response && request.response._error) {


What was the result you received?

request.response is always null

What did you expect?

I expect to get the response object from the event callback

We have been running into the same issue. We are using hapi version: 17.6. We noticed that it had something to do with the version of node we were using. We were running node version: 10.2.1. We also noted an issue running node version: 10.6.0.

Not sure what the root cause is, but we reported success with node version 8.12.0 and 10.10.0.

@Aex confirmed, was having issues on node 11.3.0.

Switched to 10.10.0 and it worked.
