http code returned by API REST

  • 200 OK - Response to a successful GET, PUT, PATCH or DELETE. Can also be used for a POST that doesn't result in a creation.

  • 204 No Content - Response to a successful request that won't be returning a body (like a DELETE request)
  • 304 Not Modified - Used when HTTP caching headers are in play

  • 405 Method Not Allowed - When an HTTP method is being requested that isn't allowed for the authenticated user
