The HTTP 202 status code means a request was accepted, but the server can’t know for sure when/if the processing of the request is going to take place.
While rarely used, this status code might come in handy when a server accepts jobs for asynchronous/batch processing (for example, creating reports).
Since HTTP doesn’t have a mechanism for asynchronous communication like webhooks (non-commital is the term-of-art), clients should resort to polling to find out the final result of their query.
Keep in mind that not all clients can handle this status code properly.
