is it possible to define multiple charset in the content type of a REST call in Swagger?
I'm trying to describe a call like this.
The issue I run into is that the charset that is returned is the charset of the DB.
And we have some DB that for historical reasons are not on the UTF-8 encoding yet.
Is it possible to describe this in a way that both the headers Content-type: application/Json; charset=UTF-8 and Content-type: application/Json; charset= iso-8859-1 are considered valid answers?
You'll need to define those different encodings as separate media types:
requestBody: required: true content: application/json; charset=UTF-8: schema: $ref: '#/components/schemas/Something' application/json; charset=iso-8859-1: schema: $ref: '#/components/schemas/Something'
There's an existing enhancement request to improve the syntax so that parameterized media types can be defined using a single Media Type Object:
