Error 303

Post by al1mlr » Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:46 pm

Dear support team,

Testing register services I get an HTTP 303 answer which is not documented.

I am testing the following request taken from the documentation. "/3.2/rest-services/register/application/epodoc/EP99203729" (the 3.1 anonymous version works fine).

Could you please give me your assessment ?


Here is the returned result:

#"HTTP/1.1 303 See Other"

I tried to replicate your query today and I didn't get any such error. The query works fine

Please try again to see if you get same response today
