filter_input_array(INPUT_GET, $filters, true) does not add empty fields to the output array if the query string is absent. It does add them correctly if even one parameter appears.

Note that filter_var_array($_GET, $filters, true) does add the empty fields correctly.

Test script:
$getFilters = [

    echo '$_GET: <br>';

    $req = filter_input_array(INPUT_GET, $getFilters, true);
    echo '<hr>$req:<br>';

    echo '<hr>$reqGet<br>';
    $reqGet = filter_var_array($_GET, $getFilters, true);

Actual result:
Execute the above script with no query string gives this result:


array (size=0)




array (size=2)
  'id' => null
  'name' => null
