Content Compression#

Request and response body data may be encoded with gzip compression to accelerate interactive performance of API calls and responses. This is controlled using the Accept-Encoding header on the request from the client and indicated by the Content-Encoding header in the server response. Unless the header is explicitly set, encoding defaults to disabled.
