How to return a HTTP status code with PHP serverless function

I want to return a custom HTTP status code in a PHP serverless function. But the following code:

return ['body' => ['test'=>'Lorem ipsum'], 'statusCode' => 404];

Has this output (with HTTP status 200):

{"body":{"test":"Lorem ipsum"},"statusCode":404}

Expected output (with HTTP status 404):

{"test":"Lorem ipsum"}

hello @accountmorel

Here is a minimal example that the function returns an error repose along with an HTTP status code and additional HTTP headers:

  1. function main(): array {
  2. return [
  3. 'body' => 'The requested resource is not found.',
  4. 'statusCode' => 404,
  5. 'headers' => (object)
  6. [
  7. 'Cache-Control' => 'no-cache',
  8. ],
  9. ];
  10. }
