Insert From URL throws an error on a valid response

Product : FileMaker Pro Advanced 17

 

How to replicate

 

I'm doing some work with a Web Service via Insert From URL that the service on a valid POST returns a 204 HTTP Response code.  You can see the documentation here : Update an existing contact | Contacts API

 

If you read all the way at the end, it says that a valid response will be a 204. 

 

However FileMaker throws an error 10 on HTTP 204.  This shouldn't be an error.

 

Workaround (if any)

 

I can trap for it, and capture the headers and then manually parse out the 204 to check, but FileMaker shouldn't consider this an error if there is a legitimate use for this response code in a working Web Service.

 

I'm trying to locate a public API that I can give as an example so you can put together a test script, so if I find one I'll send you those details.

 

Cheers,

Nick
