[erlang-questions] [erlang-question][cowboy] Why got 415 unsupportedmedia type when using POST method

Thats' to say I should use content_types_accepted rather than content_types_provided?

I"m still puzzled with the difference between these two functions. when to use which?

Why is it ok when I use GET method with content_types_provided?

thanks!

Because you didn't define a content_types_accepted function and at least 
one function to accept the representation in the request.
