HTTP - Get Method

1 - About

The HTTP GET method is equivalent to the default retrieval action of the protocol. For example, RETR in FTP.

And returns a response code

GET is the primary mechanism of information retrieval.

A payload within a GET request message has no defined semantics; sending a payload body on a GET request might cause some existing implementations to reject the request.


3 - Management

3.1 - Cache

The response to a GET request is cacheable; a cache MAY use it to satisfy subsequent GET and HEAD requests unless otherwise indicated by the Cache-Control header field (Section 5.2 of RFC7234) See HTTP - Caching (Cache-Control Header)
