Consult this flow chart to answer questions like: * Which REST operation microflow will be executed for my URL? * What happens when an exception occurs in a REST operation microflow? * How does basic authentication for REST services work? * How does anonymous authentication for REST services work? * What happens when a REST operation microflow returns an empty HTTPResponse? * Why does my REST service return 400 Bad Request? * Why does my REST service return 401 Not Authorized? * Why does my REST service return 404 Not Found? * Why does my REST service return 405 Method Not Allowed?
