Stream Writer

tl;dr If you use Stream Writers in your Scripted REST API, explicitly set the HTTP status or it won’t work the way you expect. Muuuuch longer version This is based on a problem a coworker (and sometimes cohost) saw yesterday. He set up a Scripted REST API that returned about 200 records in a JSON object, total payload was ~36k. When loaded in the browser directly, it worked fine. Consumed via either curl or a different instance with a REST message, nothing ever moved down the wire.
