Basic Examples  (1)

Allow the caller of an APIFunction to set the format used for exporting the result:

If the "_exportform" parameter is not specified in the call, the APIFunction will not export the result:

Scope  (5)

When AllowedCloudExtraParameters is set to "_exportform", the response can be exported using any format from $ExportFormats, overriding the specified export format:

When AllowedCloudExtraParameters is set to "_responseform", a ResponseForm of the result can be returned:

When AllowedCloudExtraParameters is set to "_geolocation", the client can specify a different $GeoLocation:

When AllowedCloudExtraParameters is set to "_memorylimit", the client can specify a limit for memory usage:

When AllowedCloudExtraParameters is set to "_timeout", the client can specify a time limit for the execution:

Properties & Relations  (2)

Allowing for "_exportform" is effectively equivalent to setting the third argument of APIFunction:

Allowing for "_responseform" is effectively equivalent to wrapping the body of the APIFunction in ResponseForm:

Possible Issues  (1)

Letting API callers set the "_responseform" might expose details of the deployed API, such as internal messages:
