In some situations you may need to submit a POST HTTP request when an operation requires a different method. The REST Web Services server recognizes control parameters that alter the way that it handles POST requests. See information about control parameters in Adding Control Parameters.

Note: If you are using Legacy REST Web Services, you can use the atg-rest-http-method control parameter to process an HTTP POST request as a GET, PUT, or DELETE request. This allows you to perform operations that require GET, PUT, or DELETE methods even if your client software cannot send HTTP messages with them. For example, you can include message body data with an HTTP POST request but have the server process it as if it were an HTTP GET request.
