API Error Handling

Errors codes will be returned from the service in two parts: HTTP status code and a more specific Exception code.

HTTP Codes

401: Unauthorized The request was not authorized.
Possible causes:
  • Missing or invalid access token
  • Expired or revoked access token
  • Disabled client
  • Attempt to access data not available to the client

Example JSON:

   "version": "v2_0_0",
   "status": 401,
   "exception": {
      "message": "Token could not be located.",
      "code": 1002
403: Forbidden The request was for data not available to the client.
405: Method Not Allowed The request used an HTTP method that was not acceptable.
422: Unprocessable Entity The request was unprocessable due to client errors.

This is used as a generic client error code indicating the client is not providing data that is expected for the request.

Possible causes:
  • Missing "id" when processing a PUT or DELETE
  • Missing or invalid data in a POST or PUT body

Example JSON for a missing ID:

  "version": "v2_0_0",
  "status": 422,
  "exception": {
    "message": "ID is required.",
    "code": 3002

Example JSON for a missing body in a POST or PUT:

  "version": "v2_0_0",
  "status": 422,
  "exception": {
    "message": "Invalid data (bad JSON?)",
    "code": 4000
500: Internal Server Error The server encountered an issue processing the request.

This is most likely a problem with the service such as a required system is offline.
