API Error Codes

HTTP Response Codes

  • Response codes 2XX indicate a successfully processed request (e.g., code 200 for retrieving data, code 201 for adding a new entity, code 204 for deletion, etc.).

  • Response codes 4XX indicate that a request could not be processed correctly because of some client-side data issues (e.g., 404 when addressing a non-existing resource).

  • Response codes 5XX indicate that an internal server-side error occurred during the request processing (e.g., when database is temporarily unavailable).

Response Body with Errors

Each response error includes HTTP code and JSON data with error description. It has the following structure:

  • error_code – integer error code;

  • error_message– text error description;

  • details – additional error details (format is specified to each case). Can be empty.
