Common response parameters

Responses can be returned in either the JSON or XML format. You can specify the response format in the request. The default response format is JSON. Every response returns a unique RequestId regardless of whether the call is successful.
  • A 2xx HTTP status code indicates a successful call.
  • A 4xx or 5xx HTTP status code indicates a failed call.
