The customer tried to create a new maintenance schedule via Rest calls using a json script and received the  status response "415 Unsupported Media Type"

Any UMP with Webservices_Rest deployed

Webservices_rest could not determine the type of the content in the body of the POST call made against the UMP server and raised the error "415 Unsupported Media Type".


The customer had to add two header variables to resolve this issue:

Name           |   Content


Content-Type |  application/json


Accept           | application/json
