Request type. Specifies the type of request.



See detailed description of each request type.

Unless otherwise noted in the detailed descriptions, the server will return text responses with MIME type text/plain. Many request types let you specify a response type, such as text, that is typically the default, javascript, xml, or json. The associated response MIME types are text/plain, text/javascript, text/xml, and text/javascript, respectively.

Unless otherwise noted, responses format the response as a set of name=value pairs.
