Format System Query Option ($format)

The $format System Query Option is used to return a response using the media type specified by the query option.

The following table lists valid values for the $format query string option:

$format Value

Response Media Type





For example, to return the /RecoveryLocations collection in the xml format, send the following request:

GET https://uwin2012r2.n.local:9899/v2/RecoveryLocations?$format=xml


Format System Query Option ($format) Note:

The $format query option in a request URI takes precedence over the value specified in the Accept request header. That is, if you enter the application/json value in the Accept request header and the xml value in the $format query, VAO REST API will return the response in the application/xml format.
