Information in this document applies to any platform.


In PeopleSoft, when defining a REST web service customer can define a custom content-type such as an Oracle Cloud content type.
However, when the message is sent, if the custom content type is not/does not have a known content-type, the request's content-type will default to Integration Broker's default content-type, which is XML.
In this case the customer wanted the content-type to be JSON, but it ended up being XML with no ability to change it to JSON.

For example, the customer set the content type to the following.

But, since it is not a known type, Integration Broker used the default content-type, XML when sending the request message even though the customer wanted the type to be JSON, and the request message content-type was application/JSON.

&MSG.SegmentContentType = “application/vnd.emc.documentum+json”
