Does Documentum REST service accept gzip as an encoding parameter

edited July 2, 2017 in Documentum #1
We use Documentum REST services to store pdf files into Documentum. We use a multipart request to achieve this. We wanted to zip the request containing the pdf file to improve the performance of the service since the size of the pdf is huge. Does Documentum support gzip as an acceptable encoding parameter?

    I don't know but zipping a PDF file will not reduce the size very much since PDFs are usually already compressed.

    General request compression is on the plan of the next REST release. As said, compressing a pdf file does not reduce the content size much (10% in average). Considering the compressing CPU time on the client & server, respectively, the performance doesn't change much.
