HTTP Status and Error Codes

Below is a list of common status and error codes you might see.

Status and Error Codes

status codeMeaning
200OK - the request was successful.
201Created - the system has fulfilled the request.
400Bad_request - you probably didn't use the correct syntax; check it again.
401Unauthorized -
1. Check to see if you provided Basic Authorization.
2. If you have provided Basic Auth credentials, then it is likely you don't have the correct permission granted; see specific orange notes in the endpoints about specific permissions the admin needs to grant for different endpoints.
404Not Found - resource was not found.
500Internal server error.

Sometimes you won't get a JSON Error Response, instead, you will receive an HTML response.
Error Response Example if you forget to provide and/or select Basic Authorization credentials:
