@samyuktha ramireddyWelcome to the community.

  • This error occur when incorrect or no 'Content-Type' is defined for API call.
  • So I suggest you to add, 'Content-Type' header to your API request.

If this doesn't help, please share your API request (CURL or Code you are using to make request) for swift diagnosis and resolution.

i have added the curl command above. i have provided the accurate content-type header but still the response is 415 un supported media type.
