The HTTP 415 Unsupported Media Type client error response code indicates that the server refuses to accept the request because the payload format is in an unsupported format.

The format problem might be due to the request's indicated Content-Type or Content-Encoding, or as a result of inspecting the data directly.


415 Unsupported Media Type


Specification Title
RFC 7231, section 6.5.13: 415 Unsupported Media Type Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP/1.1): Semantics and Content
