Error codes

The error codes correspond to the HTTP status codes and are sent as  a HTTP status code, as well as a XML/JSON response. The XML/JSON response always describes the exact reason of failure.

200
– Success!

400
– Bad request, you did something wrong. Have a look at the response for an exact description.

401
– Similar to 403 Forbidden, but specifically for use when authentication is possible but has failed or not yet been provided.

403
– The request was a legal request, but the API is refusing to respond to it. Unlike a 401 Unauthorized response, authenticating will make no difference.

404
– The requested API method could not be found.

418
– Somehow you reached our teapot. The responding entity may be short and stout.

500
– A generic error message, given when no more specific message is suitable. A.k.a. we screwed up. Have a look at the response for an exact description.

503
– The API is currently unavailable (because it is overloaded or down for maintenance). This is a temporary state. have a look at our Status page for more info.

  • Ten books I read in 2018 December 31, 2018
    1. Enlightenment Now Steven Pinker Found it very difficult to read. And I didn’t finish it. Pinker tries to be very eloquent in every single sentence. Couldn’t finish more than one chapter at the time. There are quite some interesting pleas in there for liberalism, but it didn't stick with me. I think that the […]
