You have many options to access to CosmosDB. Rest API is one of these options and it is the low level access way to Cosmos DB. You can customize all options of CosmosDB by using REST API.

I am going to cover only the required headers here.

It’s a little more complicated than just posting to a URL and Hasan has you covered.
