Request and response types#
The Rackspace Cloud Databases API supports the JSON data serialization formats.
The request format is specified using the
Content-Type header and is
required for operations that have a request body.
The response format can be specified in requests either by using the
Accept header or by adding a
.json extension to the request URI. A
response can be serialized using a format that is different from the request.
If no response format is specified, JSON is the default. If conflicting
formats are specified by using both an
Accept header and a query
extension, the query extension takes precedence.
