Message headers contain metadata about the message itself (for example, sender and destination details, message properties, message type). Headers for different transports contain different types of information.

In case of HTTP transport, HCL OneTest™ API supports both the Content-Encoding header and the Transfer-Encoding header that are present in reply messages. The encoding types supported for each header are gzip and deflate.

These header values are used in the send request message as well as reply.

You can find more details about configuring protocol-specific transports and headers in API Tester guide.
