Quick Tip – Return HTTP Status Code from ASP.NET Core Methods

It is advisable to return the proper HTTP status code in response to a client request. This helps the client to understand the request’s result and then take corrective measure to handle it. Proper use of the status codes will help to handle a request’s response in an appropriate way. Out of the box, ASP.NET Core has inbuilt methods for the most common status codes. Like,

  • return Ok(); // Http status code 200
  • return Created(); // Http status code 201
  • return NoContent(); // Http status code 204
  • return BadRequest(); // Http status code 400
  • return Unauthorized(); // Http status code 401
  • return Forbid(); // Http status code 403
  • return NotFound(); // Http status code 404

It allows anyone — be it your development team or your end consumers — to visualize and interact with the API’s resources having none of the implementation logic in place. The Petstore (created by the swagger team) is a demonstration of the beautiful Swagger UI.
