Supported Media Types

Media types let you choose the format of the data you want to receive, defining the structure of the HTTP payloads exchanged between the server and the client. They allow an API to inform the client how to interpret the data in the payload.

Note:

Use the Accept HTTP header in the client to specify the media types for the response from the server. You can specify:
  • application/json in the request accept header when a superset of all supported media types may be accepted in the response.
  • application/vnd.oracle.adf.resourceitem+json;q=0 in the request accept header when you want to get only the response code and not the response body.

The following table lists the supported media types for the Content-Type header.
