API Method: help test


Returns the string "ok" with a 200 OK HTTP status code.

When used with GET, this is a simple test to see if the REST API is running. When used with POST and a user_id paramater, this is a convenient and non-destructive way to check user credentials (e.g. from in a workflow/batch script).
