“Accept” encoding types recognized by Netsuite
I am making a restlet call to Cybersource to retrieve transaction records. The get request needs an “Accept” header.
var headers = new Array();
headers[“Accept”] = “application/hal+json;charset=utf-8″;
When I do the call var the response = nlapiRequestURL(url,”, headers,’GET’); the response is a 406 error. Indicated Netsuite does not recognize the response type. A get request that needs an Accept Header of application/json works fine in another script. the call also works fine outside the Netsuite environment.
Does anyone know if Netsuite recognizes the hal+json Accept type?
I am using Suitescript 1.0.
I believe your understanding of that header is reversed.
406 Not Acceptable client error response code indicates that the server cannot produce a response matching the list of acceptable values defined in the request's proactive content negotiation headerse.
In your context, NetSuite is the client and Cybersource is the server. Cybersource cant generate application/hal+json in utf-8 so it returns the 406 error code.
