Subject [jira] [Commented] (FALCON-184) Select default content-type for API responses and update docs

Srimanth Gunturi commented on FALCON-184:

I am thinking the default content-type for all API calls should be JSON (not XML), thereby
not requiring additional headers (users forget to add them frequently). Each API call should
document the default content-type and alternate content-types.

For example, {{/api/admin/stack}} would have a default content-type of {{text/plain}} with

> Wiki documentation shows output in JSON. However it does not mention that a request header
of {{Accept: application/json}} is required to output JSON content.
> Either we make JSON the default output in API thereby not requiring an {{Accept}} header.
Or we document the header.
