Transaction/CancelOrRefund Web Service
The Transaction/CancelOrRefund REST web service allows you to cancel a transaction entirely or make a refund (total or partial if the buyer supports it).
A full reversal will be performed if the transaction status is one of the following:
If detailedStatus is equal to CAPTURED, the operation will be a refund. In this case, if the amount transmitted in the query is equal to the amount of the transaction, the refund will be full. If the transmitted amount is lower than the transaction amount, the refund will be partial.
You can partially refund a transaction several times, until it is fully refunded.
Case of chargebacks: Any attempt of refunding an unpaid transaction will be rejected.
Case of partial cancellation

What Transaction/CancelOrRefund really does:
the REST Web Service Transaction/CancelOrRefund chooses which operation to perform automatically.
However, it is possible to force the type of operation thanks to the resolutionMode parameter.
If the field is sent empty, the default value will be AUTO.
The possible values are:
|AUTO||Remboursement autorisé si le statut de la transaction le permet.|
|CANCELLATION_ONLY||Effectue une annulation. Si la transaction est remisée, une erreur est retournée.|
|REFUND_ONLY||Effectue un remboursement. Si la transaction n'est pas remisée, une erreur est retournée.|
