REST API:Error Codes
All requests return standard HTTP status codes as well as a message code and description, in the body of the response.
HTTP Status Codes
The most commonly returned HTTP status codes are:
Code Status Description 200 SUCCESS Returned by a successful GET, PUT, or DELETE. 201 CREATE_SUCCEEDED Returned by a successful POST. Indicates that a new entity has been added to the platform. 400 BAD_REQUEST Invalid argument, or other error as indicated by accompanying platform message. 404 BAD_URL The specified resource does not exist, or the server could not be reached. 405 METHOD_NOT_ALLOWED The requested resource does not respond to the specified method, or to the content type of the request. This message is returned when:
- The wrong method type was specified. (Typically, GET instead of POST, or vice versa.)
- The wrong URL was specified. (The URL exists, but it's not one that responds to the specified method.)
- The wrong content-type was specified. (The URL exists, and the method is valid, but there is no variant of the resource that processes the specified content type.)
(Check your spelling, and double-check the API description.)
415 UNSUPPORTED_MEDIA_TYPE Content-Type has not been specified in the request header. Depending on data format, it should either be application/xml or application/json.

Platform Message Codes
In addition to the standard HTTP return code, the body of the response from the server includes a <message> section, which contains:
- An Integer containing a success or failure code:
- A value of 0 indicates a successful call
- Any negative value (<0) indicates an error
- A String containing an explanatory message.
The most commonly returned platform message codes are:
Platform Code with Http Status Description -1 INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR (500) Request could not be completed.
