Nihal Jain created HBASE-20715:
----------------------------------

             Summary: REST curl command for create namespace with 
"Content-Type: text/xml" specified (mistakenly) results in a 400 Bad Request
                 Key: HBASE-20715
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HBASE-20715
             Project: HBase
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: documentation, REST
            Reporter: Nihal Jain


I have a habit of setting "Content-Type: text/xml" for curl commands. Today, I 
had a bad time debugging the 400 error for below command. Finally, this 
discussion helped me in resolving the problem.

As pointed out by [~mwarhaftig] and [~misty] in their discussion in 
HBASE-14147, a curl request of the following form will throw a {{400 BAD 
REQUEST}}
{code:java}
curl -vi -X POST -H "Accept: text/xml" -H "Content-Type: text/xml"  
"http://my_server:20550/namespaces/new_ns2/";
{code}
I think we should document this in the description for "Create a new namespace" 
explicitly mentioning that users should take care "Content-Type" is not set for 
this particular command.
