Error description

  • According to RFC 7231 if a response with status code 303 "See
    other" is returned for a HTTP request the client is expected to
    redirect to the URI given in the Location header and any
    non-idempotent HTTP methods such as POST should be changed to
    GET.
    
    Prior to this APAR the HTTP method of the redirect is
    unchanged.
