application/x-www-form-urlencoded Yes No The message information is URL-encoded. For example, the POST passwordmanagement/sendPasswordResetCode operation takes the user's email address as a form parameter. The request message must be URL-encoded, so the @ sign in the email address is encoded to %40 for sending over HTTP.
*/* Yes No Used in a request to indicate that the expected response can be any format.
multipart/form-data Yes  

A format used when the content has multiple sections of different content types. The multipart/form-data media type has separate components, separated by boundaries, and each component has its own media type. An example of usage is the POST /api/dropbox/pictures method where the message includes some text and also an image. For more information about operations that support file upload, see File Upload with Ajax. For more information about uploading files to the platform with the multipart/form-data media type, see Managing Multipart/Form-Data Uploads.
