The HTTP method to use, must be one of the following:
GET: Requests information from the server. Any data that the server requires to identify the requested information must be in the URL or in
POST: Sends information to the server for processing. Requires one or more cfhttpparam
tags. Often used for submitting form-like data.
PUT: Requests the server to store the message body at the specified URL. Use this method to send files to the server.
DELETE: Requests the server to delete the specified URL.
HEAD: Identical to the GET method, but the server does not send a message body in the response. Use this method for testing hypertext links for validity and accessibility, determining the type or modification time of a document, or determining the type of server. If you have not specified HEAD, by default, GET method is called. However, message body is not sent in the response.
OPTIONS: A request for information about the communication options available for the server or the specified URL. This method enables the ColdFusion application to determine the options and requirements associated with a URL, or the capabilities of a server, without requesting any additional activity by the server. If you have not specified OPTIONS, then ColdFusion sends a response.
Overrides the value that you specify at component level.
