13.4 Request Transaction

This transaction allows a user agent to request an origin server to commit to the safekeeping of a set of Instances.

13.4.1 Request

The request shall have the following syntax:

POST SP /commitment-requests/{transactionUID} SP version CRLF
Accept: 1#media-type CRLF
*(header-field CRLF)
payload Target Resource

The Target Resource of this transaction is an individual commitment request identified by its Transaction UID.

In DIMSE, results may return asynchronously and the SCU uses the Transaction UID attribute returned by the SCP in the result to match it to the corresponding request. In DICOMweb, each request, which contains the Transaction UID in the resource path, is synchronously paired with the response, so the Transaction UID is not encoded in the response. Query Parameters

The request has no Query Parameters. Request Header Fields

The origin server shall support Request Header Fields as required in Table 13.4.1-2.

The user agent shall supply Request Header Fields as required in Table 13.4.1-2.
