201 Created
2xx Successful

The 201 (Created) status code indicates that the request has been fulfilled and has resulted in one or more new resources being created. The primary resource created by the request is identified by either a Location header field in the response or, if no Location field is received, by the effective request URI.

The 201 response payload typically describes and links to the resource(s) created.

RFC 7231 6.3.2


The 201 is often used after a POST request to create a resource. If the Location header is used, the browser will redirect to the url provided.
