The method and the body of the original request are reused to perform the redirected request. In the cases where you want the method used to be changed to
303 See Other instead. This is useful when you want to give an answer to a
PUT method that is not the uploaded resources, but a confirmation message (like "You successfully uploaded XYZ").
The only difference between
302 is that
307 guarantees that the method and the body will not be changed when the redirected request is made. With
302, some old clients were incorrectly changing the method to
GET: the behavior with non-
GET methods and
302 is then unpredictable on the Web, whereas the behavior with
307 is predictable. For
GET requests, their behavior is identical.

302 Found, the equivalent of this status code, but that may change the method used when it is not a
303 See Other, a temporary redirect that changes the method used to
301 Moved Permanently, a permanent redirect
