Laravel FromRequest the given value must be true or false

i am sending boolean type date from angular frontend to laravel backend and i am using FormRequest for data validation.
here is the data i send from angular:

{'full_name' : searchTerm,'is_search_friend':true}

  'full_name' => 'required|string|min:1|max:50',
  'is_search_friend' => 'required|boolean'

i get this error :

is_search_friend: [” is search friend must be true or false”]

meanwhile i am sending a boolean type data ‘is-search_friend’

Method 1

If you are sending the data {'full_name' : searchTerm,'is_search_friend':true} as multipart/formdata then the the request must need to be like

{'full_name' : searchTerm,'is_search_friend':1} //1 for true 0 for false

of if you pass value as RAW JSON data then the request will be
"full_name" : "searchTerm",
