Getting help in the HTTP API

In GeognoSIS 9, you can use the HTTP OPTIONS request on any endpoint.

Use a request without the .json extension to see all possible representations:

OPTIONS  http://server:port/geognosis/9/sessions/session_id/map/overlays/0/items

Including the .json extension will also return a list of operations. For eg use:

OPTIONS  http://server:port/geognosis/9/sessions/session_id/map/overlays/0/items.json

For reference using the same request with GET returns a list of items in overlay 0:

GET  http://server:port/geognosis/9/sessions/session_id/map/overlays/0/items.json
